This beautiful boy is Reilly. As a small puppy, he was left tied by a piece of wire to the gate of Pepis Dog Refuge two years ago and named Phantom because one half of his face is white and one half brown. He was a playmate with my boy Polar, they were pups together. Adopted in the UK and renamed Reilly, sadly due to circumstances beyond his control, he is now in foster in England and waiting for a forever family again.
He is 2 years old, full Pet Passport, no hangups, perfect with other dogs, ready to slot straight into another home.
If you have room for him in your home and your heart, here's the contact.
Not a galgo but another of the maltreated hunting dogs of Spain. As you read this story, with a happy ending, know that what happened to Annie happens to dozens of galgos and podencos every year. Another despicable way the hunters dispose of their dogs.
She has been called Monique. On the evening of 15/2 she started vomiting and diahorrea so was rushed to the vet. She remained in the clinic. The pups are weak, we are waiting for news. Please help with the vet bill if you can. thank you.
Even with 75 dogs to care for 24/7 and a pregnant galga just rescued after being abandoned and running loose in the village, and about to produce babies, Jane and Alan of Pepis Refuge made time to visit a local hunter. Here Jane explains.
'As part of our ongoing effort to be involved in the world of the Galgos and the Galgueros in our area, we were invited to go and see a local Galguero and his dogs. He was very proud to show us the food he prepares them every day, which consisted of pasta, vegetables, meat and bread, with a supplement of vitamins which we saw cooking as we were there.
His dogs have a large compound with individual sleeping compartments, spotlessly clean. His dogs are micro chipped, vaccinated and tattooed on the ear. For security reasons he has a vault door filled with concrete and thick walls as some of the Galgos are from champions and to him are priceless, he has dogs of over 7 years of age that he won't part with.

Hello my friends here you have some photos of the protest which has taken place today in the centre of the city in Madrid "Against galgo and other type of dogs hunting". It was a success, there were hundreds of people among them, several galgo rescue organisations , animal welfare orgs and also three political parties, Podemos, Pacma and Equo.
As for the official media, I think we have been put to silence except for the digital site "infolibre".
