HELP FOR 2 GALGOS NEEDED!

18 Aug

AS WE HAVE STILL 5 OF THE JEREZ GALGOS IN A BORDING KENNEL, WE ARE COMPLETELY OUT OF FUNDS AND NEED DESPERATLY DONATIONS TO PREPARE THESE 2 GALGOS AND OUR OLD YORKIE “PIXEL” FOR ADOPTION.

200 EUR PER DOG FOR CASTRATION, TESTS ETC PLUS 100EUR FOR THE YORKIES MOUTH JOB. TOTAL 700EUR IS DESPERATLY NEEDED!

PLS DONATE BY www.paypal.com TO pro-galgo@total-barcelona.com

HERE THE STORY:
2 days ago we got a call from an animalfriend who visits quite frequently the local city dogpount who unfortunatly kills dogs after a certain time because of “overbooking” and told me: “MO, THIS IS VERY URGENT! IN THE POUND ARE 3 LOVELY GALGOS!!!”

That is a surprise to us because in the catalonya area there is no huntig with galgos so I called directly the management of the pound and reserved the 3 dogs without having seen them before. (Typpical MO would my friends say, lol)

We arrived there and asked for the 3 dogs and were told that one could be rehomed to a local family, and we were happy to hear that. But then they showed us the other 2.

this shy and sick galgo we called RANDY. He was captured in the area of Vilafortuny Tarragona, on a gasstation after beening seen for over 3 weeks abandoned. He was in a real bad state, famished, full of fleas and ticks and in absolute panic! he has to stay in the pound until next monday to finish the quarantaine, then he can come also to us.
A big white boy with brindle spots, not older than 3 years ald and obviously mistreated as he is a very fearfull and shy dog but that will soon change in our house.

And then the caretaker showed us another brindle boy.

This one was friendly, kind and very confident, no shyness. Just a young happy dog wagging his tale at us giving licks and kisses. Of course we could not let him there!

MARTES the longnose already at PRO-GALGO's

So we went to the pounds office to claim the dog. As he had no name, and as it was tuesday, we called him MARTES (tuesday in spanish). We took him with us and went to visit our friend ANA MARIA and here borzois and iggies who is a professional therapy dog trainer. ANA was suprised of the fantastic caracter of this young brindle boy and has suggested to train MARTES as a therapy dog because his personality is just perfect for that. Even uncastrated he gets on with any dog, male or female. He is kind with small dogs like Anas iggies, he does not care about cats and is totaly charming with humans. No bad habits or panic from the past, just a young kind and loving galgo boy.

We live in the USA but we have three folks that would pay for all adoption fees and travel and everything for the dogs just let us know what we can do as we have free air miles and we can help please let us know the way we can either foster or adopt any dogs doesnt have to be a galgo—maybe one dog that has been at the shelter a long time or needs medical attention or a dog that you plan to adopt out to someone that is living in europe . charles and Jane Totten
