This poor galga is called Lucy. She was taken to the Scooby refuge in the middle of July, in this state. Cobie tells her story.
16/7/2015. This sweet little galga girl is Lucy, she´s 5 months old and was saved a few weeks ago from the perrera provincial from Valladolid by Scooby. The police had taken her there because she was walking on the street although she had an owner which was a gypsie. That person had done nothing about the severe mange she was suffering of and her whole body was covered in blood, infections and bad wounds. She was in a lot of pain and was very depressed because of the bad state she was in. Nobody wanted to go near her because they thought she was like a monster and they feared to be infected by her illness. So she got worse and worse every day until she got to this state. Poor girl. She has a long way to go to full recovery but she will get all the time she needs to become a gorgeous galga. She is in the clinic in Medina now and surrounded with love, attention, good care and medicines.
Meet puppy Joseph jr. rescued 25/8/2015 from the perrera in Valladolid by Scooby. Was he born with this or has he had 2 broken front legs without them being treated? Or maybe he was taken too soon from his mother, as usually, and is this because of malnutrition? We don´t know yet but if it can be fixed, Scooby will fix it and if not, we will find him a goodhearted family who is not looking for a `perfect`galgo but for one who needs a loving family because the heart is all that matters most!

My first greyhound had such a superb temperament that she became a PAT dog...Pets As Therapy...in the UK and regularly visited an old folks' home to spend time with the residents, especially those who had been dog owners but couldn't have a dog in the home.
Here is a lovely story about a Spanish Galga who is doing a similar job - but this time in New Mexico in a prison.
Probably why they won't ban it...nor any of the other cruel animal 'sports'! Sick twisted minded males poncing around in sparkly garments making out they are 'macho man' when in fact they are pathetic puppets dangling on strings.
Podencos are the hounds used for hunting in the Canary Islands. Their life is as tough, if not more so, than for the galgos and podencos on mainland Spain. 85,000+ podencos in the Canary Islands. This is just one of the perreras. And you think the perreras in Spain are hellish!
Two more super items added...knitted coat for a galgo/greyhound and a fun wooden plaque.
