We hang Christmas decorations at this time of year. The Spanish hang dogs. This is one who was lucky enough to be found still alive, which is a miracle.
He allowed his rescuers to cut the rope, and remove the assassination cord from his neck without a whimper. His wounds are being treated by caring volunteers. His crime? To be born a Spanish galgo.
When hunting ends in January there will be dozens more cases like this, many of them will not be found alive.
He has been christened Noel. He is now looking for a forever home. Contact Cristina at GalgosIn Fronteras if you can help.
