It always distresses me to read about galgos sent to other countries for homing, who then escape and are lost! At any one time, there are several lost in France alone. And in the last 2 weeks there has been one lost in the US and one in Canada. Luckily both were eventually caught a few days later, without injury, but the stories could have been very different.
Over the years none of my own galgos have escaped, none of my foster galgos or podencos, none of the galgos and podencos who have stayed here overnight.
