You will almost certainly be asked to complete questionnaires about your home circumstances, you life style, your other animals, your family etc.
Please don't consider this intrusive...the organisations who ask for this are just doing their job to ensure that the rescued galgo is not being taken from the frying pan and thrown into the fire.
Equally, if someone comes to visit you, please don't feel insulted. It is standard practice.
Joanna Simm explains why.
They want to be sure that you know what you are taking on, that you have a securely fenced garden (galgos do like to run, and are not the sort of dogs you can let out onto an unguarded doorstep each morning !)
Remember too that the person who visits you, or who asks the questions, has a common cause. Namely the well-being of this beautiful breed of dog we know as a galgo.
Is adoption still for you?
I do hope so. There are so many of these beautiful, gentle and loving dogs being terrorised and killed in Spain, they need all the love they can get. They give it back, in spades. I promise.
A bientot, Joanna.
I'll second that. To even try to understand the hell the galgos and podencos go through in Spain is something we cannot begin to imagine, and yet these calm, affectionate, non-barking dogs have still so much love and trust to give to someone who gives them a gentle caress, feeds them regularly, does not abuse them -
There is NO love like a dog's love, especially from those dogs which have been abused, and the galgos and podencos are, I believe, the most abused dogs in the world.
