Wonderful news, the German police tracked her down, took her into their care and organised with the association in Spain for her to be returned. No confirmation yet if they got her before she had been abused, the question has been asked.
(SWanchez) This is what life is like at Pepis Dog Refuge for Jane and Alan Brian. In 2005 they moved to Spain for a retirement life, instead this is what they cope with 24/7/365. Neither of them are in the best of health, but they carry on caring for the dogs the local Spanish throw out. They survive only on donations. Please join their teaming - just the cost of a cup of coffee a month - or a monthly donation of £5/5 euros. Every little helps.
Jane writes. 'Being a legal refuge, you are limited to how many dogs you can take, this alone is a problem. WHY, because Seprona the guardia civil can prosecute you for having over your quota, because it is illegal to do that,so we are here and easy targets. BUT it is also illegal to dump dogs,and when they do we have to deal with it/ Do we untie them and let them go to be shot or starve to death. NO we don't, we deal with it.
BUT who is going to prosecute the people who dump them? NO ONE, because you have to prove they dumped them, no chip no proof. The law is useless.
That being said, the dogs can be removed and destroyed. Welcome to Spain.

Urgent - we are seeking the charity or private person who homed this Galga in Germany! Called Malita in Nov 2016, now Eloy. We think that the dog arrived either today or some days ago. The owner has a huge record of animal mistreatment and sexual abuse of dogs which were reported by several reliable German charities. All information will be treated strictly in confidence . This person must be stopped !!! Thank you.
5 stunning galgas which for some reason have been sent from Spain to Portugal for rehoming! The Portuguese hunters are not known for kindness to their hounds, so let's work hard to share these lovelies and find them forever homes. Click on the weblinks to see photos and videos of them. Contact Dogs of Portugal direct about them.
The task facing Rescue and Animal Welfare Organisations in Spain is huge and relentless.
The constant flow of Animals needing rescue, care and re-homing is similar to seeing the tip of an Iceberg. As with an Iceberg we are seeing the impact of only a small proportion of the problem, the vast majority lies below the surface.
The unseen mass, is, among others, a compound failure of a clear understanding of the Law affecting Animal Welfare.
What are the responsibilities and accountabilities of the various agencies ,Municipal, Law Enforcement, Veterinary and Legal in applying and reinforcing the Law?
Another little galgo pup at Pepis Refuge Gates. Jane Brian tells his story.
'5 Jan 2017. Late last night the dogs in the refuge alerted us to a possible abandonment. We spent an hour searching around with the torch...but could not find anything. This morning when we were cleaning, the dogs started again so watching where they were looking barking we saw this little fella standing looking at us from outside the play area, so he could have been the reason for last night bless him. Unusual for just one so we had another search around but found nothing. He is very skinny and obviously scared. He will be visiting the vets this evening for a medical check-up. His name is Solo.
