Video of 15 galgos and a mix rescued last weekend from being killed at Merida perrera. Evidence on their bodies of the terrible hard life they have been forced to live. You will see diahorra on the floor - plus dog croquettes just chucked through the bars of the cage - not even given in a bowl. Croquettes for starving dogs - chucked on the floor in urine and diahorrea! Help Scooby to help them to a better life. Scooby English news blog.
This video is of galgos with their owners - ask yourself, are some of these the men who perpetrate such cruelty on their dogs - if not them, then their friends...
Have a chuckle! This is Phantom - now named Reilly and living the life of Reilly in Scotland. He was my Polar's puppy mate at Pepis Dog Refuge back in April/May.
