Bev Farmer of Podenco Friends has done a tremendous amount to raise the profile of Podencos - not quite so 'Invisible' as they were 12-15 years ago when I first started to foster some back in 2007. Here Bev shares the story of how she and her late partner Warren became involved with these wonderful hounds.
'Angela .. the first senior podenco we rescued back in 2013.
I collected Angela from the perrera, she was 12 years old and surrendered by her owner. When I reached to pick her up I prepared myself for the weight of an adult dog. I took in a sharp breath as it was like picking up a puppy, she was so thin. She had a lot of health issues, a huge hernia her ear was a mess and her kidneys were failing.
