I've been publicising about the plight of the podencos in the Canary Islands for several years now. At that time SARA Protectora on Lanzarote worked hard to home some, both in Germany and the UK. The first story I published was about Rick and Lesley Beauchamp who help home rescued Lanzarote podencos in the UK. I've plugged and plugged away to try and get more help for these fabulous hounds, both from Lanzarote and Gran Canaria and finally in the last couple of years, people are coming forward to help the volunteers on the Islands struggling to save the podencos, most of which end up in perreras.
Bev and Warren of Podenco Friends now help foster and home podencos from both Islands. This stunning podenca is Athena, saved from the perrera by Laura Johnson of TheKennelKlub on Lanzarote and flown to Bev in Murcia. She has just arrived in her forever home in Norway. These are the before and after photos.
