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.
What a difference love and food can make to a terrified starving podenco puppy. Little Saffra rescued 23 days ago and now she is looking so much better, has gained weight, her coat is getting a shine, she is negative for med diseases, a real sweetheart and ready to search for her forever sofa.
From a terrified puppy found all alone wondering where her next meal would come from sleeping out in the cold. With some tender loving care and good food, she is so much happier sometimes that is all it takes.
Many of the podencos rescued by Bev and Warren of Podenco Friends made the journey to Sweden to forever homes. Here is a video of one stunning boy, flying out of Alicante to Tina and his forever. Contact Bev if you can offer a podenco a forever home.
Regular readers will know that I have been appealing for help for the Canary Island podencos since I first created my blogs back in 2007. A prohibitive factor in the adoption of Podenco Canarios is the cost of flights to mainland Europe for forever homes. In the past three or four years there has been an explosion of publicity for these fabulous hounds, largely due to facebook pages. I'd like to introduce another Lanzarote group who are helping hounds in the Teguise area. Huella y Huella - footprints.
'Huella a Huella is a group which raises awareness, sensitization and well-being in general to the animals in Lanzarote from schools to those working in the field of animal protection and promotion of awareness-raising actions.
So we want to create a set of which all form part, institutions, associations and citizens, and together, bring this great project to term.
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!
Mary Macdonald is flying the flag for Podencos in Canada. She's already adopted 2 and is about to get her third one. Here she tells her story.
"I am a volunteer for Greyhound Pets of Atlantic Canada (Branch Rep for my province of Prince Edward Island) and Galgos and Podencos of Atlantic Canada. It was though GPAC that I found out about these beautiful souls. I do meet and greets across my province, adoption applications and home visits.
We currently have 4 Podencos on PEI which I think is so wonderful for such a small Island. Our meet and greets and " word of mouth " are bringing attention to the podencos here and the rest of Atlantic Canada .
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.
