'Mum in the pictures belongs to an alcoholic (the man that killed the other pups). One of the female pups will replace the mum as breeding stock, and this lovely lady will be handed over to Teresa (volunteer rescuer) once the pups are weaned. She is extremely emaciated and Teresa has already left him a 10Kg bag of dog food, but the galga needs special nursing, high energy feed (like Royal Canin starter) or she won’t survive feeding these puppies.
Regardless of how you feel about this situation (we CANNOT take them all away, nor rescue the future breeding pup), please help this galga survive by helping buy some proper food. Be the first to sponsor mum or the male pup that is now in our care and up for adoption.
What can I say... this pure bred greyhound boy is less than 24 hours old. The man that owns his mum wanted a breeding bitch, so he killed his brothers and only left females in the litter, this little one was rescued by Teresa in the last minute... Besides all the other puppies recently, this pup is being hand-reared by Inês Pinto, so once again if you would like to sponsor this baby, we desperately need puppy milk.'
The volunteers are called Teresa & Caopanhia, very small rescue in Aljustrel, nr Beja. It's a hunting area. They have two facebook pages one in english the other in portuguese,
