These are some of the lucky galgos, brought out of Spain this weekend to their forever homes in France. One had been rescued from a perrera, covered in wounds, but there is no doubt that her personality and confidence will blossom within a few weeks.
This is one of the not so lucky ones. Rescued from hanging, she had been in the refuge near Cordoba only 2 weeks when I visited at the beginning of June. She was terrified, a walking skeleton, bearing the horrendous burn marks from the cord around her neck. We arranged for her EU passport, with microchip and vaccinations in place, to be done as soon as possible.
