This poor podenco is only about 4 months old, in a deplorable state, skeletal, barely able to stand. Is extremely frightened. Please has anyone room to take him and save his life. He's in Seville. Contact Maria If this email won't work try Anabel
You may remember an appeal for someone to make room in a refuge of home for an injured podenca who had been living rough since October. I'm happy to report that she has now been saved. The podenca has been named Ana, after the village where she had been living. She has been taken in by 112carlotagalgos, travelling by their pet transport company from Ana, Valencia, down to Malaga. Here's her story.
This is an appeal from Happy Endings Final Feliz in Chiclana near Cadiz. Last winter friends of mine spent a couple of months there helping the association with abandoned dogs and looking after them. They came back with two puppies which had been born to an abandoned podenca; now named Oliver and Nancy, the puppies are benefiting from being in a home environment, although Nancy continues to be nervous of strangers.
Fabi is another such young dog, whose mother was a Podenca. Karen takes up his story.
'He's been waiting for nearly a year for someone to take him into their heart. He's around 3 years old and is a very sweet dog.
There are dozens of unsung heroes in Spain, helping the abandoned dogs and cats, funding much of their care themselves whilst working to earn a living. Macu is one such lady, in Seville. Some of the appeals I have posted on Galgo News and Podenco Post have been from her. Here she explains what she tries to do, and the problems she faces, like so many volunteers breed dogs.
'Good afternoon everybody, I´ll try to summarize.
In this settlement by Seville there are more or less 20 shacks with 30 dogs each one (with their owners). I´ve spent 3 years of my life there, saving galgos, podencos and mixed dogs none wanted by their owners.
