'I am Marta Pedrali, I read all your articles since I adopted a galgo. I adopted a beautiful black and white galgo two years ago and a brown one last year. I love them so much and I do not understand why people treat them in those ways in Spain and in other parts of the world. For this reason, I share my story, my daily life with my special galgos through a Facebook page called "Chiry the galgo & Maui" in order to make people understand how amazing life is with them and how sweet they are. I also volunteer in an Italian association that homes them, its name is "Progetto Galgo Onlus", we are in the province of Bergamo, Italy.
Paolo and I (Marta) are a couple that the 30th June of 2018 adopted, for the first time, a black and white galgo named Chiry. We adopted Chiry with the help of an Italian association called “Progetto Galgo Onlus”. Chiry comes from Protectora Scooby Medina in Spain. I chose him (it is a “he”) personally, after looking at the website of Protectora Scooby. On their database are plenty of dogs, I couldn’t choose at the beginning. But, when I noticed a photo with that face so sad and frightened, he caught my eyes and it didn’t take a long for me to understand that it was him, Chiry, that I would have surely adopted! Now, two beautiful and intensive years have been passed since that hot afternoon when Chiry came to us.
