We hope that the year 2016 has started well for you too!
On the 2nd of January, Augusto (our vet) and Yaiza drove to La Puebla de Cazalla, Sevilla, to pick up 6 galgos: Campeón, Jazz, Tango, Talía, Rumba and Ella. 3 males and 3 females were handed over to us because their owner found them “useless” for hunting and had threatened to hang them up (which he had done in past ocasions) .
Jazz is an exception, and this is his story.
Jazz’s owner called us for help and asked us to take him. His neighbour is the caretaker of a hunting reserve and when the owner was shopping in the village, he entered the premises and hang all the dogs up… Jazz survived because he was faster but is very traumatised.
When the owner of Jazz handed him over to us, the poor man had tears in his eyes.
JAZZ is, after living with us for some weeks much more relaxed.We can stroke him,he plays with the other dogs, eats well and when we massage him at night to relax him and put on his warm coat he looks at us with those beautiful eyes you can see on the foto.
Here is the rest of the gang:
From left to right: ELLA, ZAMBRA, CAMPEÓN, TANGO and RUMBA.
We have been very lucky, because Rumba has also found a home in Switzerland and will be flying on the 2nd of February to Zürich.We feel very happy for her.
But there are already 4 more galgos waiting for us in Sevilla in a foster family. We will pick them up on the 6th of February.
If you click here you will see our group of galgos and how happy and relaxed they are at Galgo Freedom.
