Jan Hammond loves podencos and here she writes about rescuing Maite.
'On our return journey from England so Spain in September 2015, with our 3 Spanish rescue dogs, we pulled in with our Motorhome to a service area near Valencia for a welcome coffee stop. On entering the lorry parking area we both noticed a small brown head peering over a concrete block and at once looked at each other and said 'did you see what I saw'.
Behold a very thin young Podenco female emerged with a 5cm thick lump of rope round and hanging from her neck. Just able to stand but wagging the tail in a small movement to say Hallo! She knew instantly we would not hurt her,we had found a friend for life. On seeing our family she staggered over to greet them, so dehydrated and malnourished she went for the water first before a bowl of food.
Not about podencos but an example of the incredible work done by DeAnimals firm of lawyers in Murcia. And why they need funding and sponsorship to fight more cases and run more courses to educate lawyers, judges, police, Seprona and volunteers on how to prosecute cases of maltreatment of animals.
