A tragic story...let's get Tatoo a forever family for a happy ending.
'TATOO was run over and left lying in the gutter without noticing if he was alive or dead. It was winter, cold days and nonstop rain. Two days later, it occurred to them to stop by and see what had been the dog and there he was... and alive!! The truth is that he was deader than alive, unconscious, with an open fracture of the front leg with his bone out , famished... It's been many tough months in a house but he's ready to find him a family. He's a good, calm and happy dog. We don't know if he will regain foot functionality, but that affects him very little for his running around!
Our precious little podenquito is still waiting for home. His siblings have gone and he's all alone. He's full of love, gentle, noble.
Enzo is only 2 years old. Who can resist those eyes?..; He has a look that falls in love. We rescued him with a lot of fear but look how far he has advanced! He already trusts us! He is very affectionate and curious. He gets along great with other dogs and is very playful.
He would be ideal for a family that already has sociable and balanced dogs to help him in adaptation.
He walks very well on a leash. He is healthy, vaccinated and neutered.
Ready to go to a wonderful home with a family as special as he is.
'Hello! This two-year-old dog is another hunting victim. Not good for hunting because she's scared of shots. Therefore, she is doomed to spend the rest of her life isolated and alone in this room, it is the only thing she will see in her life if we do not find a better place. Please if anyone can find her a better home, a foster or a family that wants to give her a chance don't hesitate to write to me. It's in a town in Toledo, but could travel. She has all the vaccines up to date and no donation is asked for it. She's very sweet and good, she deserves a chance.'

I want to share with you an amazing book I am currently reading. 'Molly The Pet Detective' by Colin Butcher is the story of a working cocker spaniel rescue dog which has been trained to find missing cats!
Colin Butcher is a retired UK policeman who chose a project to see if a dog could be trained to find missing cats. It's the story of how he researched the idea, the help he got from Medical Detection Dogs both in finding the right dog and training both her and himself.
The book also tells the stories of missing cats Molly found, as well as missing dogs, the latter sadly a growing problem in the UK.
If you have lost a pet or know anyone who has, you will know the pain and distress experienced. This weblink takes you to the website for The Pet Detectives. Please support them.
Our galgo Bracken has been with us for 11 years; he has always been a sensitive dog, happy in the pack of hounds and walking the meadows every day...on leash, as he has a hunter's nose! However, since we sold the farm in January 2021 and downsized back to the UK, he has caused us concern by showing aggression to other dogs.
This link takes you to an extensive article on the causes of aggression in dogs.
In Bracken's case, we guess there are a few causes.
