The greyhound, unlike all other dog breeds, was not created and selected by man, it is a product of nature already represented in the early graffiti of high Mesopotamia and arrived to us practically intact.
The man, who transforms everything, didn't feel the need to intervene on the greyhound.
He was the first animal to collaborate with man, he is morbidly attached to his owner, he is lazy and loves to sleep, but he is ready to transform into a fast hunter, careful gaze and snapping muscles.
He's tender, affectionate, reserved, never intrusive, discreet presence by your side.
It's a majestic dog, fast as the wind and light as a feather.
One of the most revered races in antiquity, to the point that peasants and poor people are prohibited from ownership exclusively by nobles and rich people.
Today his speed is also his curse, a dog useful for racing, hunting and everything man needs to make income.
It becomes an object and once broken it inevitably throws itself.
Few people know what a Galgo, the Spanish greyhound, is used indiscriminately by hunters for hare hunting.
Massively overbred, at the end of the season the luckiest are abandoned, others hanged, decapitated, burned, impaled or thrown alive in the wells, every year, throughout Spain.
Talk about thousands of dogs, not isolated cases.
Known as ′′ the children of the wind ′′ for their ability to run fast on the ground (a spectacle of nature) but also as ′′ dogs of nothing ", because they are considered objects, working tools, to use for fun and to throw away when no longer profitable.
Convicted to death already since their birth they will never know the affection, warmth of a home, the comfort of a couch.
Wonderful pet dog, truly smart and sensitive, clean and discreet, sweet, patient, empathetic with children and elderly.
Every year in Spain the numbers surrounding abandonment and torture are scandalous.
We can't stay still.
That's why we're especially interested in this race, so abandoned and underestimated that it makes the owners potential murderers.
Discovering greyhound as a pet animal is a unique experience.
Only those who have been blessed to participate in their daily routine can truly understand a greyhound."
