We use the donations to save podencos from the streets and killing station, get them vet treatment, spay them, vaccinated them and pay the monthly kennel fees. When they are ready, we search adopters and foster homes for them
You can help us save more podencos with only 1 euro per month!
This is Podenco Pino, handed to Dogs of Portugal by his hunter because the little chap is afraid of guns! Sensible hound! To learn more about him, click on this link. Contact Dogs of Portugal direct if you have room in your home and heart for him.
Gulliver is a 2 year old podenco campanero found abandoned in Jaén. He is shy with people (more of men). He is excellent with other dogs, gets on with everyone no matter the size. Likes to play with them.
Not tested with cats yet.
Big size, 65-70 cm to the shoulders.
Ideally he should have a home with another dog in a calm area and with a garden.
These 2 sisters are Vera and Ayla are cat workable! They are very affectionate with people but they depend on each other so we would love to find a forever home either together or separately but with another dog so they are not alone.
Let's hope the nightmare of 2020 and the virus will not be repeated in 2021 and that we may soon return to 'normality'. For our beloved hounds, nothing much has changed. Some dogs were adopted to help people through isolation, hopefully they will stay there for their natural lives, knowing comfort, a full belly and lots of love.
Thank you for reading my blog and for supporting the appeals for help which I receive from shelters and associations. It still saddens me and makes me angry over the attitude of the hunters that their dogs are simply tools to be disposed of when they are no longer of use.
'These two arrived this week. Blanca the white one a female 8 years old. Pinto a male 13 years old. Both from the same owner that had them both all these years) we have the original passport ) who signed them over to the perrera 2 days ago. When this happens there is no requirement to wait 21 days before they can euthanize the dogs.
Who dumps a 13 year old dog into a pound just before Christmas and although I really don’t have space I made it happen. No way were these two going to be left there.
Thank you to Jenny Screen for making the drive down to deliver them to the Finca on Christmas Eve. Also to Pam McLeod of Podencos In Need Scotland who donated 100 euros which paid for their release fee and transport and some left over to help towards veterinary fees.
Both settled in baskets with a thick blanket to sleep on. Blanca has a swollen wrist and can’t bear weight on it so I’ve given her some anti inflammatory and pain relief. Pinto has some lumps that need checking. They are both quite stressed so for now just letting them rest.
Podenco Aurora, only 11 months old and found skinny and lost on the road in Portugal. Now safe with Dogs of Portugal and looking for a forever home. More about her on this link, contact Dogs of Portugal direct.
