Over a period of 7 days at the beginning of June, a team from Greyhounds In Nood, Belgium, travelled overland with a van load of goods through France to Spain and Madrid, to visit refuges in the area with hundreds of galgos. This is the story of their trip, fascinating and moving.
At one refuge, they were introduced to a 6-week old galga puppy which had been dumped in a rubbish bin, covered in vermin. At another refuge, there were more than 300 galgos.
This story makes the proposed introduction in Belgium in October of a law prohibiting the importing of dogs from outside that country even more appalling.
