Wanting a dog does not involve just choosing which one you like more for your physical qualities or "race", wanting a dog also implies to realize that you will invite him to share your life, your house, your space and that he also has needs and Many times will not fulfill your expectations.
Wanting a dog is to be willing to love him in the good and bad, puppy, adult or grandfather, love him when he barks and have patience because something wants to tell you.
Love him when he bites the walls and the armchair, when he runs and doesn't listen to you because he's expressing his nature free and playful. Take him to the doctor because he's sick or hurt.
Give him worthy food and not "what spare" but what you can really offer him. Understand that a dog has tastes and dislikes and that what you expected from him may not be compatible with who he actually is.
10/7/2019 Carley had her second surgery today to remove the rest of the tumours in the mammary chain. Our vets had to take a lot of tissue to try and get clear margins we known from the first biopsy the tumours were malignant and the highest grade. She will need some time to recover.
For 8 years local people have been trying to rescue these podencos...trapped in their own filth by a bastard galguero. As always, so many of the officials in Spain are corrupt and couldn't care less about animal welfare.
