A while ago I reported on the story from Macu in Seville, where she took a poor galgo with no hair, from a gypsy encampment, where everyone laughed at him and told Macu she was stupid for taking him. He's now in the care of L'Europe des Levriers and there are some beautiful photos of him on this link.
A translation of the story so far.
Macu (also known as Inma - Imaculada) works on her own, doesn't belong to an association. She saves the galgos and podencos in her area, especially from the gypsy camps, and keeps them in kennels for which she has to pay. She does this from compassion and love for these poor souls.
L'Europe des Levriers contacted Macu and offered to help. Paid for vet expenses to get Tristan, as the galgo was now called, on the road to recovery and cleared of contagious mange. Then he travelled to the EDL kennels near Madrid.
His hair began to come through and lo - he is a brindle - with a gentle and loving nature. then he met Lara, another galgo from the terrible La Cuadras gypsy camp. She transformed him, he followed her and she helped him on his road to recovery.
It would be wonderful if these two galgos could be adopted together - a shame if they go to separate homes. But either way, their future is assured - full of love and kindness.
Contact L'Europe des Levriers if you can offer a home to Tristan or Lara or any of their other rescued galgos and podencos. President Beatric Monnet speaks very good English.
