URGENT – SPANISH GYPSIES ABANDON GALGOS

We have received this case just a couple of days ago. What makes this so urgent? The dogs shown in the attached pictures are abandoned near a gipsy site in very tragic condition. There are galgos, 2 female podencos and 1 terrier mix. We cannot bring them to the shelter, because we currently have more dogs there than we have space for. Some volunteers have taken stray dogs into private kennels (Dog residence) and are paying for them out of their own pocket (I personally have 2 dogs in a kennel because I have nowhere else to take them).
Attached are pictures of the dogs and the area where they´re at:

1. Joya- Female, small galgo whippet-type, about 2 years old. Very docile and good-natured. Gets along with other dogs. She had skin problems when we found her but is already receiving treatment for it.

2. Homero- Male, galgo, 8 months old, very shy. Homero has many scars all over his body, but is an extremely gentle and obedient dog.

3. Laisa- Female, greyhound, 4 years old. Abandoned by her hunter owner, because she was sick with pneumonia and didn´t catch a rabbit. She´s now completely cured and has a great temperament.
*****
4. Patys- Female, podenco, 3 years old, she has a severe deformation in her front legs that prevents her from walking properly. She walks placing her knees on the ground. Her hind legs are in the shape of an “x”.  We don´t know if she´s been abused or hit by a car. She´s very frightened around people.

5. Chari- Female, podenco, 5 years old with a slight malformation of her hind legs as well, but not as severe as Patys´. She walks and runs with no problem. She´s very playful and docile, and gets along with the other dogs in the shack.

6. Mayka- Female, galgo, 1 year old. A hunter abandoned her because she has scabies or fungi, we´ll find out this week. To make matters worst, she´s in heat and there are 4 males in her company. We´re taking her to the vet this week to start a treatment for her skin condition, but we´ll have to take her back to that horrible site.
********

7. Sangreazul- Male, purebred galgo, about 3 years old. His hunter owner abandoned him because he has “ugly paws”, whatever that means. He´s very friendly and docile.
Again, none of these dogs are at safety in our shelter. They live in an abandoned shack and one of our volunteers makes sure they have food and water, but it´s urgent to find them a home because they are in a dangerous area.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Nuria Muñoz

    SANGREAZUL, NOW RENAMED DIESEL,LIVES WITH ME AND CABALLERO, ANOTHER RESCUE GALGO, IN HOLLAND. I CAN VOUCH FOR DIESEL THAT HE’S DOING FINE NOW LEARNING TO BE A DUTCH DOG THROUGH RAIN AND COLD, BEING OUT AND FREE FOR AT LEAST 3 TO 4 HOURS A DAY. DIESEL AND CABALLERO HAVE QUITE A REPUTATION HERE IN THE AREA FOR THEIR FREINDLINESS, THEIR BEAUTY AND THEIR NEVER ENDING TRUST. THEY BOTH RECAPTURED STRENGHT AND HEALTH AND ARE IN SPLENDID CONDITION! AND MORE IMPORTANT, I LOVE THESE CUPIDO’S AND THEY LOVE ME. HOPEFULLY, WE ARE GOING TO BE TOGETHER FOR ANOTHER DECADE OR SO. IN THE MEANWHILE, WE PREACH AND TEACH HERE ON BEHALF OF YOUR GOOD WORK.
    LOVE, CABA, DIESEL, ANNERIE
