If you recognise any of these symptoms in your dog, please take it to the vet to be tested for leishmania. I always recommend that, even if your Spanish hound has tested negative for the disease, you should have it retested every year.
Information from a reader who lives in Switzerland, about the regulations for owning and keeping a dog.
In Switzerland: Dog owners have to pay a yearly fee for each dog, depending on weight. In addition he must attend a dog school to learn handle his dog, and do that with each dog he owns. This is all registered at the City hall (ayuntamiento).
This could be a way towards a solution everywhere in the future.
There's room in the trashbin ... from whence this little soul was rescued! News from Little Pod Asssociation in Murcia. Just a tiny baby podenca girl, 50 days old and thrown in a bin like trash!!! She sustained some horrific injuries and her front leg has already been amputated. She has been named Sara. She is now safe with LPA and already has offers of a forever home, when she is recovered enough.
