At the end of May podenco Cuthbert arrived at his new home in the Channel Islands, it was a complex journey due to his destination and we had a hiccup at the final stage. A road trip from Spain to the UK then a ferry crossing to Guernsey ( the Channels Islands) where he arrived friday lunchtime… But due to fog no flights were taking off to for the final leg of his journey. Thankfully a very kind person came forward on Guernsey and took Cuthbert home until he could fly to Alderney this morning.
We have to thank Katy Orton his new mum who was determined to get him home and it was worth all the effort today he had his first walk on the beach. He took the trip in his stride and made friends along the way even the captain on the plane helped him into the cabin.
Cuthbert's journey began in Lanzarote where he was rescued from the Perrera by Laura Johnson and her team of the Kennel Club and part of our joint project Saving the Lanzarote Podencos. Thanks to the volunteers of Animaerea and Air Europa they flew him over free of charge to Madrid with Hugo and Jared.
A stunning example of a Podenco Canario he has been a delight to spend time with a real gentleman with a sense of fun and loved everyone he met. We are so pleased he found his forever sofa with Katy and joins Rain a blind Podenco she adopted from us 3 years ago. From a bleak existence, a life in chains. He now has the most amazing beaches to run and play on ….. it just doesn’t get any better than this
Here is Cuthber'ts story from the day he was rescued from the perrera to his first walk on the beach ...
