Here are pix of some of her podencos currently looking for forever homes. Contact Jacky direct if you would like to know more about the hounds.
Felix, rescued just in time, on the brink of collapse. Here's his story.
'15th May 2020. This young podenco is a typical example of severe animal neglect/abuse and terrible suffering of many dogs in Spain. Sunday must have been his lucky day, his guardian angel Susana crossed his path. He was taken to the vet for a check up, he received tick and flea treatment, lab blood test and some X-rays were taken also. Probably he is around 3 years young.
He is safe now and will receive all necessary care and love.
We would like to thank HAA for the support of the medical costs and of course Susana who did not hesitate and took this boy home.
Felix still has a long way to go, but he hasn’t do it alone anymore. Together we will fight back and in a few weeks we will see a beautiful young podenco.
