Here's a lovely story from Viv Lesley about a fostered podenco with a very rough start in life who has now found his forever home in Scotland. Read all about the work of Podencos in Need Scotland on this weblink.
'The three pups handed over by the hunter Constance, Arthos and Porthos. When they arrived on Thursday they were very withdrawn and the first time I let them out in the paddock given their reaction they had never been outside before . Today they are so much brighter and acting like puppies and eating well.
The two boys I see a problem with their right front leg at the ankle and the position of the leg is little bowed. Its not bothering them it just could be the growth plates so I will refer to my vets..
I doubt these pups got the best food I think they were still feeding off the mum and they are 8 to 10 weeks old .. Lack of exercise stuck in kennel wont have helped. Hopefully it is something with good nutrition and time it will resolve itself.'
This week GRA welcomed this beautiful Podenco Ibicenco. This beautiful big boy is only 9 months young, he’s is used to living with a small dog and a cat. Unfortunately due to a change of circumstances he could not stay with his family and GRA was asked to find him a new home.
If you're considering giving him a new home, you should know he's a young dog, so he still needs a strict education.' Contact Sandy direct.
This is Kiri, a Portuguese Podengo X who was dumped at the shelter of Dogs of Portugal by his owner, after living in a home for 6 years! How strange it must be for him. Read about him and see more pix on this weblink and contact Dogs of Portugal if you are interested in him.
'There are many people who when they see their dogs get old, get upset and suffer in anticipation of the ending that unfortunately will come. They would like them to be eternal, never to leave and always live with them. They take care of them, they spoil them, they do what is necessary to save their dog, to help him spend a few more years. I've met a lot of people like this in the Protectora.
But unfortunately there are others with different behavior, because when your dog, or any other animal, ages and is sick, they abandon it because it no longer serves its use: entertain the children, show off how beautiful it is, hunt. That's happened to poor Kira, aged 14, she has stopped serving someone, someone who never loved her, and they have abandoned her in Zoosanitarian.
She's with us now. We'd like to know something about her story, to tell us what she was used for, but we'll never know, although seeing her race, and her state, it's not hard for us to imagine.
'is Lolita she was known as the Moraira Carpark dog. She was notoriously difficult to capture and even with sausages that contained a sedative she still eluded everyone. She was eventually rescued and brought to Akira. She has gradually been building up her confidence and volunteers and staff spending time with her.
Lolita is now ready for a home she gets excited to go out for walks and enjoys being petted so he really needs a home to call her own.
She is vaccinated, chipped and has a passport so if you think you could open your heart to this girl to let her enjoy the life she always dreamed of then please contact us today. You can call +34 657 689 567 or email email@example.com for more info about Lolita and the adoption process'
'I have attached some pictures of Ellie. She is in Foster and they have decided they are not in a position to adopt so she is looking for her Forever Home. She loves to swim and play and is friendly to all people. She is good with dogs and there is another dog living with her at her current foster home.
Her d.o.b is 09.01.2019. She is spayed and fully vaccinated with passport. She has tested positive for leish but inactive she just takes the daily allopurinol tablet to control.
Thanks so much
