You may remember Dana, the rescued galga who became very stressed in kennels. Through a contact in Greyhound Rescue Holland, she has now found a wonderful forever home. Here's what her new Mom says.
'Dana is already changing a lot inside and outside. In the beginning she was frightened of bicycles, not of motorbikes or cars, but this is improving. She walks perfectaly on the lead, when I stop, she stops and when I continue, she continues. She is still afraid of men although she doesn´t hide anymore, just barks at them. When my husband is at home she walks around with no problem and he can caress her without problem and she accepts biscuits from him, so that is improving as well. She is especially fond of me and she likes the children a lot.
With our other dog Esra it is getting better as well. In the beginning Esra was jealous and afterwards it was Dana who was jealous....When I caressed Esra she got a bite from Dana but now they play every time more and more, they run like mad one behind the other so I open the door so they can play outside. Dana is starting to be naughty (nicely), she picks up shoes from the entrance and wants to chew them or she steals the plate protectors (do not know if this is the word in English) from the table. I think this is a very good sign, she feels freer every time. She is a real sweety. She loves sleeping on the sofa and she loves being cuddled. In her description on the web page it said: Dana is a galga with a golden character and that is totally true, we have started loving her very much in such a short time."
NB Dana's companion in the kennels, podanca Mary, is still desperately searching for a forever home. This young bitch needs a home environment to have training and help her before a well-balanced and well-behaved companion. Contact Charl if you can adopt her
