This galga has been handed in by her owner. She has spent 3 years on the end of a chain! All the details are on this weblink to the Dogs of Portugal website. Please contact them direct if you can offer a forever home. Such a beauty!
This news is from the association Unión Protección Animal Olavarría.
'We went for them to look for them after a call from the police and there we found 2 Mobiles taking care of these poor animals that were discarded as trash in a cistern of about 3 MTS or more were covered with branches and the cistern with some badges To die discarded as a current currency, the police called the firefighters who went to take them out, there they were put in the shade and hydrated until we arrived in the organization with the girls of crao who offered veterinary care and food because they know we are overcrowded with dogs and debts.
The Police helped us move the galgos to vet of the silver where we were waiting. Diego who attended them first as always doing everything necessary to save these hungry galguitos and in total abandonment, one thing is to hear and another is to see it, fills us really with sadness, impotence and anger that a human being can do so much cruelty with a being so helpless.
Stunning girl India was found wandering with her mouth tied shut. Unfortunately as she had a chip she had to be returned to the hunter who gave her to another one who made her run tied to a motorbike.
She obviously didn't make the grade (thankfully) so has ended up in shelter. She has had a terrible start to life but is currently in a Spanish foster home getting used to the fact that some humans are good.

The discarded galgos become part of the landscape in certain places in Spain and during a specific time of the year.
It is sad to see how they roam the fields, roads, towns and cities looking for something to satisfy their hunger with and somewhere to shelter from the cold. Above all, it is devastating and frustrating to see how many of them end up dead, lying on the road or in a ditch, after being run over.
We don’t have the solution to end this problem that many don’t even want to see. We cannot change or make new laws; all we can do is try to rescue as many as possible and provide them with a safe place, food and veterinary assistance, and then look for families that give them the love they deserve and never had.
Tera was found wandering with a karabiner hooked on one of her legs. It seems that some heartless idiot thought she would not move or escape by being subject to this sensitive area, but it was not like this, and this smart girl managed to escape from the hands of her abuser. She was picked up and taken to the municipal kennel of Valladolid, where Scooby has taken her out to find her now a family that of all the love he has never received.
Despite his bad experience lived, Tira has not lost confidence in humans and is a very cheerful and loving galguita .
It's not fair to find a creature like this, tied to a streetlight in an area where there are no houses and with the cold. No water, no food, how far will we get? I need help, I don't have where to put it and less because it's female and those I have taken in are all males which some have been years without seeing a female.
