News from the SARA shelter on Lanzarote - just arranged an adoption of two podenco puppies, brother and sister, and then they get two boxes of puppies delivered a week ago.
One is a litter of 10 bardinos and the other a litter of seven podenco/bardino cross.
Lynne writes, 'A Cach. is short for Cachorro which is Spanish for puppy. We give all the dogs in a litter the same name so they are Cachorro Dustbin or Cachorro Red Car - stupid names but it means we can remember where they were found or, in the case of red car, the person who dumped them.
A bardino is another type of Canarian dog. The photo of Tigre (Tiger) shows how these new puppies will turn out (up for adoption by the way).
Thin like a podenco but with Bardino markings. A bardino was originally bred for goat herding.
The hunters haven't started cross breeding ... these puppies were a result of a "night on the town", I'm sure.
17 x 6 week old puppies in one day! A shelter nightmare.'
Contact the SARA shelter if you can adopt one of these puppies or any of the other 200 dogs in their care.
