It's nearly 10 years since I became heavily involved with the plight of the podenco and galgo and it doesn't get any easier; I find it hard not to respond to so many of the urgent appeals which arrive in my Inbox! The following is an appeal not dissimilar to the one I received about 8 years ago of a little podenca badly injured on a Spanish road and needing urgent vet treatment and care. On that occasion it was my little Bebe - still bossing the much bigger galgos around and still very mobile on 4 legs!
This little podenca puppy has just been rescued badly injured from a Spanish road - barely able to stand. She's in the Feria area of Badajoz, not a good area for hunting hounds at the best of times. I've appealed widely on facebook (that's the only contact I have for the lady who took her in) for an association to take her in and get her into a vet clinic. The refuges are full to bursting, fingers crossed one can help asap.
