At the beginning of June these 4 podencos arrived at the finca of Podenco Friends and Bev Farmer. Here she tells the story.
'The Podencos of Lanzarote .. they spend much of their lives locked away in dark buildings or caves dug in the ground usually chained to wall. Maybe their owner will visit them a couple of times a week once no longer wanted they is little chance they will be adopted.. A chance exchange of messages a few years ago with Laura Johnson on the island and now we have been able help so many with the support of some amazing people..
This is the first time these four podencos have had the opportunity to run free in a big space and just enjoy the freedom. Rescue work is tough and demanding but to sit ad watch Paprika, Zia, Shani and Mistral experience a different life is joy to experience and makes all the difficult times worth while
