The following message arrived in my Inbox from a lady living in the mountains inland from Benidorm/Alicante. At the moment the podenca is safe but she needs to go to a shelter for an association to help home her. Please contact Gilly if you can help.
'Wwe rescued a podenco from the side of the road a couple of days ago. She looked as though she was injured, we managed to get her into the car and had her checked by our vet. The injury is an old one and has calloused over causing her to limp when walking and leaving her with a big lump on her knee.
She is young, about 2. Had no problems that the vet could see apart from the healed injury. She has not been blood tested yet but we will get that done as a priority and then get her vaccinated. She deserves more than being in a pen for the rest of her life.
Is there an association which can take her please.'
