'Paolo….. a Podenco Canario and his best friend
On the Island of Gran Canaria Paolo´s mother Uma, was chained to the wall in a box, giving birth to her puppies on a concrete floor. They were crying out to her, newly born she was unable to reach them. Other dogs that were not restrained were trying to take the pups and sadly one of the siblings was killed. Seprona were on site, after a report of the terrible conditions the 16 podencos were held in. Thankfully they agreed to remove them and allowed for the mum & pups to go directly to a veterinary clinic.
They went to a foster home on the island were Uma was able to care for her pups in comfortable surroundings. Paolo and the three other pups came to us 3 months later and Jodie adopted him and once old enough he travelled to the UK.
She has always sent me lots of photos videos and updates of him and he grew into a wonderful dog then two years later she had her baby daughter. From the day she was born Paolo has been her constant companion, so gentle and caring with her. She will grow up with him and know she has a faithful and loyal friend always by her side, sharing walks on the beach and holidays.
Thank you Jodie for sharing these special moment with your family.'
