Although galgos in Portugal are not bred, used and abandoned in the number they are in Spain...it being a smaller country, they still suffer the same abuse as the Spanish ones. This stunning black beauty is one rescued by Dogs of Portugal. Read about Saaga on and if you would like to offer her a forever home, contact the association direct.
Some years ago I worked with a volunteer in Portugal to save a galgo family from a drunk and abusive household. We saved them all and Estrela came to me in foster and went to a forever home in the UK. This is the original story.
