When I visited Bev, I met two of the 50+ podencos rescued from a hellhole in Valencia. Their necks bore the marks made by the chains and collars. After rehabilitation with Bev and Warren, they have now both found their forever family. a wonderful happy story!
Bev writes. As we prepare Nacha for her big trip to America to Sallie Lisa and her team at Grateful Greyhounds Inc. there is another twist to this story. One I had secretly hoped for and this week it has become a reality. We got confirmation that Nacha will be reunited with Esme and these two Podencos will never be separated again. Martha Feltenstein, who has already adopted Esme, was at the airport on the 5th December to welcome Nacha and take her home. This fantastic ending to such a sad story has only come about from the co-operation and team work of so many people.
Not a podenco or a galgo but nevertheless a very special young dog with Scooby Medina who needs a very special home. Here's her story.
PIPA is a very special girl.She is a puppy(born in january 2013) living with the oldies.Pipa is deaf(if not completely,almost deaf),we think she doesn´t see perfectly and, once in a while,she has an epileptic attack.
But there are many other things that make her special and loved...
I've known Eva Andrews for several years. She is a fundraiser and supporter of Scooby Medina and works very hard on their behalf. We worked together on the rescue of podenca Estrella, left behind in the cell in Jaen perrera when her 3 galgo cellmates were saved by GRIN. Here's her story.
It's 10 years since Bev Farmer first met Tilly and so began her journey into the world of the podencos - life was never to be the same! Bev tells her story.
10 years ago this month I encountered my very first Podenco. We had suddenly lost one of our dogs and called into a local shelter. Tilly was curled up in ball shivering and looking so vulnerable, so yes we will have her. She had been discovered in a large refuse bin covered in rubbish with one of her front legs badly broken.
So, having absolutely no idea what a “Podenco” was, we took her home.
Penny a very pretty Maneto Podenco only 8 kilos, is looking for her forever home. She is only young about 2 years and we think she is one of the 57 dogs that were found at La Font and that she was one of the ones that escaped. please call (Spain 0034) 962922234 or 650 304 746
