'This galguita is Kira, Mayte adopted her from Sevilla, she wanted to adopt a puppy and when she saw this case she felt the need to help her.
Kira, a battered galga, who had been beaten in the nose and had lost the snout, so is part of the snout doesn't have it and breathes through a hole they made in an operation. He had also lost part of his ears and tails to freeze and worst of all is that he had to amputate his front paw and two back feet. A dog who was suffering from human evil and worse than ever while living will continue to suffer.... Mayte decided he had to adopt her and prove to her that we are not all the same.
Kira was so bad that it took them to be able to give her 5 months, she went through several operations but that she proved to be a fighter and a survivor and Mayte would do anything to help her, as she says is her Light.
Every 4 or 5 months, Mayte has to make her some new prosthetics so she can support as the bone eventually ends up sticking out and the wounds NEVER JUST HEALED, ooze and bleed. This takes a lot of money to make prosthetics every time it is deformed by supporting bones.
