Some years ago one of my dogs was stolen. Although her chip was registered with a couple of databases including a veterinary one, she has never turned up. It's the not knowing what happened to her which hurts...was she stolen and rehomed, was she killed...here is a plea about a little podenca, if you know where she might be, please help.
PIA - A lady saw a dog resembling PIA around January 2017 at Scotstown Moor Nature Reserve in the Bridge of Don district. This may have been another Podenco as there are a few in Scotland now but it may also have been PIA as she could be anywhere.
If you are local or walk your dogs in this area, please keep an eye out! If you think you may know where PIA is, please don’t be afraid to come forward …. as promised since the beginning of this search, if she is found to be in a good home she will not be removed after all this time.
Los cazadores de Santa Cruz de Tenerife se manifestarán en contra de la nueva ley de tenencia de animales, acusando ademas, al colectivo animalista de calumnias.
On 22nd April, the Hunters of Santa Cruz de Tenerife are organising a demonstration against the new law of tenure of animals, and claiming that everyone tells lies about their cruelty to their hounjds!
This sweet little podenca is Malta, small Podenca Andaluz, rescued but in kennels, where she is still nervous. No one has asked for her so a foster home in Cordoba/Seville area is needed to help her gain confidence, or adoption.
Once she gains trust, she is sweet and affectionate and gets on well with other dogs.
Apologies from Jane at Pepis Dog Refuge for not posting much this week but as you will see it's been a tough one. Probably one of the worst yet. Anyone following this page will of seen Kiora, the Galga that was recently dumped and shortly after died of an unknown illness. Well sadly, the illness is still unknown and it's rampaging it's way through the refuge. We currently have 3 dogs at the vets, 2 in the refuge hospital on drips and several more showing signs of coming down with it. We are praying at the moment they will all survive it.
Regardless, this is going to result in a MASSIVE vet bill. We obviously can't quote it yet as at the moment we have no idea how many more are going to need treatment. If you can donate ANY amount it would be a great help.

Sadly Jane has reported today that galga Faith has died.
Look at the face of this man...does he live in a cave, is he blind. Does he not see the reality of life for Podencos on Tenerife and the other Canary Islands? Here's the link to an article in a local newspaper with an English translation.
Hunters and galleros of Güímar, Tenerife, with the support of the local hunting federations of the Canary Islands and the National Federation, have teamed up to present an initiative in defense of cock fighting and hunting with dogs and oppose a motion presented to the Mayor Carmen Luisa Castro (PP) by the United Canarian Network Against Animal Abuse, which asks for a ban on Cock fighting. controlling the use of hunting dogs and to put an end to experiments on animals in laboratories, among other measures.
And the podencos on Tenerife, Canary Islands, continue to suffer. Below is a Spanish dictionary translation of this newspaper article published on 7th March 2017.
The difficult relationship between hunters and animal rights lived this weekend a new episode, this time in the District of Valleseco. Several members of the first group have denounced in the national police that some unknown, supposed defenders of animals, on Saturday broke the padlock of a few kennels located at the entrance of the neighborhood - in a Court of the mountain - and released several hunting dogs, which could not be recovered by their owners until Sunday noon.
