I know it's an old film but much of what is on the video hasn't changed...just a few more shelters and enclosures gone up for the animals...but the team stays the same, the animals keep coming in...and Scooby needs the support.
Video 2 - Christelle visits with her father - this is 2016 - sadly nothing has changed, the galgueros still overbreed their hounds and abandon in the same numbers.
Video 3 - From Scooby in Spain to forever in Finland
'This is to show you that although I live in a hunting area, hunting with galgos and podencos, and the abuse they suffer is not condoned by all people in the town. This photo is of a group of ladies that put on a catwalk show to highlight some of the abandoned dogs found in Campillos, and other dogs needing homes. I am 3rd from the left with Mattei, and Suerte is in the centre. Both have gone on to find loving and forever homes.
So please when you see graphic photos of abused dogs in Spain please take into account that many, many individual Spanish people, charities and groups are trying to help the situation, and they go unnoticed.
'The outcasts of the outcasts in the world of hunting - They call them Regalgos in Andalusia and
Perrigalgos in Castilla.
They are mongrels whose father or mother is a galgo and they are the ones no one notices. Galgos are easy to place, as more and more people realise what wonderful companions they can be in family. Podencos, although still problematic to place, usually have a size that facilitates their adoption.
There are those who think that the abuse of galgos is a thing of the past. This galgo has appeared in Jódar, Jaén.
In the areas where there are galgos the hunters and galgueros call this practice "put them to play the piano".
Who is able to give death to a helpless animal as we can call him? What could we do with all these bastards who do this? Inhumans. These bastards should be controlled by the Civil Guard, such as the hunting license and mandatory to carry GPS Locator. And give the power to the Seprona to force its owners to allow mandatory identification even within properties.
