Adopt me!

In this section you will be able to see the photos and read the stories of the rescued galgos at Galgo Freedom. As we are a very small group and we don’t have a network of trustworthy people around the different parts of Spain and England, we do not give our galgos for adoption in these two countries, as we could not assure them the best possible home. However through Greyhounds Rescue, we do rehome in Holland.

Bellow you have a list of associations who give galgos for adoption in Spain and might also do it in the UK. Click on the associations name and it will take you to their website, where you will be able to see the galgos for adoption and contact details if you want to know more.

Sponsoring a galgo is a very easy way to help. A monthly donation of 25€ pays for its food. In return we will send you monthly updates with photos and its latest news. You will not have physicall contact with the galgo, but we will ensure you have a connection with your sponsored galgo.

If you cannot adopt, but want to help us keep rescuing mistreated and abused galgos, you can choose the galgo you want to sponsor. Click on SPONSOR ME underneath the photo of your chosen galgo and fill in the on-line form. Once you have done this, we will receive an e-mail with your details and the only thing you have to do is let your bank know you want to make a standing order of 25€ per month. From then onwards, you will receive monthly news of your sponsored galgo. We will write to you about its progress and life at Galgo Freedom, send you updated photos and when adopted you will be the first one to know so we can all celebrate.

If you are thinking of adopting, you might want to have a read through some testimonies.

COLÓN was found in the motorway which goes to Sevilla. He had a large wound on his back and was totally desoriented and thirsty, but he was easily caught as he was exhausted.

The lady who rescued him was just driving through Sevilla and could not keep him. The story quickly got to Luisa and she decided to take him in.

COLÓN was stolen and then abandoned. They had recently cut his microchip off as he had a small wound in his neck. He was sore and everythying annoyed him.

COLÓN is a 11 year old grandpa. We are sure he has been sold a few times and has had to fend for himself.

When he was rescued and arrived at Luisas home, he got stressed with the dogs’ barking. He’s now at home with us and  loves peace, quiet and no dominant male around bossing him around. He’s great with medium and large sized dogs and ideally female.

INDIRA was called „Miseria“, which means “Misery” in english. She was taken to the dog pound San Antón by her owner and left there, but as it was full they would have to put her down immediately. One of the dog pound workers called Luisa asking for help.

INDIRA was very scared and quite undernourished, but as she had a strange discharge the vet considered to castrate her as soon as possible just in case it was a uterus infection. It wasn’t: she had 6 dead puppies inside.

After the operation she was extremely weak and could not stand up because she had lost a lot of blood during the operation.

She’s now fully recovered, eats well and is starting to play.

Her tits show that she has been used as a breeding machine, and she is not that old!

INDIRA has learned to trust us and is good with other dogs and also cats, but she needs a family with experince with traumatised dogs and another dog with self-confidence so she can learn from him.

POPEYE has only recently started to recover from his owners’ abuse and now that he’s in a home without men, he feels safer. He’s a real beauty with stunning eyes which are full of fear.

His last owner had him in a barn, from where POPEYE wanted to escape. His nose is pink due to the scar he had from trying to open the barn door. Some white hair is slowly growing back.

SMART was seen living in a large open field in mid february. It was impossible to catch him and he would only get a bit closer when he saw other dogs.

The heavy rains started and the river flooded the fields and part of the village. SMART had disappeared. We thought he had drowned.

One day we received a call saying that SMART had been seen in a very deprived area where he was being chased by the gypsies with their motorbikes. We felt angry and sad at the same time.

We called the pounds vet and she immediately decided to go with her own dog to find SMART and try to catch him.

SMART had stayed around the area, so it was not hard to spot him, but only when he saw the vets dog, did he get close. The vet took some nice smelling food with her to make sure he would follow them. It worked very well and after an hour of stress did she manage to corner him in her garage.

SMART had no chip. Now the problem was where to put him. Our foster family was full, we were also full, so he stayed for some days at the clinic where he recovered and then the vet took him home until we could go and get him.

He was a very scared dog when we picked him up and di not trust anybody. After a week he has learned to play and loves it. He is starting to trust us and he is starting to realx and enjoy life.

He likes being with other dogs and learns a lot from them. He also likes to go for a ride on the car.

ORIÓN was taken to the dog pound. They didn’t tell us until 1 month later. Elenas husband went to pick him up and took him to our foster family in Sevilla. That’s when I was sent the photos of a very undernourished Galgo with a wound on its leg. You could see all of its ribs and vertebrae.
He’s finally with us at Galgo Freedom and is starting to eat well and learn to relax. He’s quite scared, but when you get close to him he stays still. He’s now starting to follow us all around the plot! He has absolutely no self-esteem, but we hope he will soon start gaining weight, self-esteem and will start trusting people.

ALAN enjoys the garden and having a comfy bed.

He’s great with other dogs and due to the stress of all the changes he has gone through, he spends a lot of the time sleeping or lying down watching the other dogs.

SAMIRA was unlucky. She was captured by the workers from the kill shelter San Antón. No one was informed and so she was invisible. A few weeks after, they decided to ask us to take her out. She was soaking, undernourished, weak and she had a serious problem in one of her hind legs. First we had to pamper her and make sure she was strong for her to go through anesthetics and x-rays.
A few days after arriving at one of our foster families, she saw she was on season. We immediately gave her vitamins and minerals so that the bleeding wouldn’t make her even weaker.
The orthopedist recommends we remove the head of the femur to avoid pain and make sure she can move her hind leg and improve her walking ability.

I found GUAPA as I was already heading home and had a handful of galgos in the back of the car. At first I thought it was a dead dog lying next to the road. As I drove past, she lifted her head and looked at the car. My heart stopped. I had no more space in the car and I didn´t know where to put her. I stopped the car and as I got close she walked away. Where she had laid were 3 frozen puppies. They were only 2 or 3 days old. Tears started to fall down my cheeks. I took the 3 pups and GUAPA started to follow me to the car. That’s how after a few minutes I managed to fit her in the front seat.
I called Estefanía, who works at the dog pound, and she convinced her mother to foster her until we had space in Galgo Freedom.
GUAPA had a microchip. We called the owner. He didn’t want her anymore. That’s how we found out that she was called GUAPA, which means beautiful.
GUAPA had a lot of milk and no puppies, so she had to be treated.
She’s very affectionate, good natured and gentle. She’s good with children, other dogs and cats

TACO is a gentle boy with gorgeous eyes. He never complains when we cure him, gets on well with all the other dogs and follows us everywhere.

We have known BARTOLOs owner for a long time. All his dogs are always in a bad state. He threatened us by saying that he would “get rid of the dog” if we didn’t take him in. Both our foster family and our own home were full so we didn’t know where to put poor BARTOLO. The pounds vet offered to foster him and try to rehome him. She wasn’t lucky and no one offered to give BARTOLO a home. BARTOLO started to get very depressed and stopped eating, so we decided to pick BARTOLO up and bring him home.

BARTOLO was quite skinny, sad and he had lost all confidence in human kind.

It took him some time to relax, but now he eats well, sleeps a lot and is slowly recovering. He loves to be with other dogs, but is also submissive.

BARTOLO will need time, patience and love to recover completely. He’s a very gentle and delicate boy!

RONNIE was found in the middle of a motorway. My friend stoped the car and tried to rescue him, but he was too scared. She decided to go home and come back with some food to try to catch him. He was not there anymore. As she drove back with tears in her eyes, she saw RONNIE at the entrance of the village.

She stopped and gave him food trying to gain his confidence. She could see he was young and wanted to trust her, so after half an hour she had managed to put a lead around his neck and put him quickly in her car. At her home he behaved extremely well and loved the company of her dogs. He also enjoyed their human company and adapted quickly to their routine.

Angelina was taken to the pound. She was found in the street and had a lung infection. The dog pound didn’t say anything to us, so ANGELINA was invisible and ill inside the pound. As soon as we found out, we took her out and rushed her to the vets. She was treated and is feeling much better. She’s really happy when she sees us in the morning and “dances”. She’s very affectionate and calm at the same time. You can see that she had puppies not long ago, as her tits are still hanging.

HECTOR has been attacked by a very large dog and he has many large wounds. He is recovering well, but he must have been terribly scared. He is not scared of anything or anyone and is a very happy and cheerful boy, who loves to play with the other galgos. He’s affectionate and a very sweet boy. He is also good in the car and all in all a very easy dog that is just starting to enjoy life.
He limps a little bit with one of his front legs, but that doesn’t stop him from running and playing without showing any sign of pain. This is probably the reason why they abandoned him. They have done an xray where nothing serious can be seen, just a little bit of arthrosis.

He had lost all trust in humans and always thinks that he will be hit. When we give him a treat, he gets close and when he takes it he immediately runs away. He’s slowly improving and now he likes to stroked and loves to get a massage.

TWIGGY is a 3 month old up. She’s very bright and a quick-learner. Very obedient when she hears whisteling and has quickly learned to deal with the big galgos.

SOL was handed to us by her owner. She was dirty, undernourished and she didn’t even have a collar on but a rope around her neck. She has sunken eyes due to her dehydration and undernourishment. Her owner was a strong rough guy, which made us understand why she’s more scared of male voices than female ones. She probably has a broken finger in one of her back legs which has healed by itself. It does not affect her in any way as she runs and plays without any problems.
She didn’t want to have any human contact, but thanks to our foster family in Sevilla, she has recovered quite well. She gets on well with all dogs and enjoys going around the garden sniffing around.
She’s only been a few days with us, but we know in a few weeks time she will come to us.

CATIVA spent a few months at the killing station of Ourense. The person who published Ausy in Facebook, asked us if we could also take CATIVA. He sent me a video of a dog walking up and down the cage. That was CATIVAs life in a cage. I was immediately heart-broken and could not say “no” to her. She travelled together with Ausy. CATIVA has been with us for a few days only, but her attitude has changed incredibly. On arrival she would run away from us and hide wherever possible. Now she will come to say hello in a very shy way, but for her that’s an enormous effort. CATIVA needs to be with a dog that trusts people. She learns very quickly for the other dogs reactions and I’m sure that will help her learn that not all humans are bad.

MOUSE & MICKEY are brothers. MOUSE plays the “younger brother” role. They are lovely and adorable and 2 very special boys. But, they are “unlucky” not to be pure breed galgos, but a mix between galgo and something else.

Right now they are 6 months old, but they have been living in a dog pound in Granada since being very young. Because no one was interested and the cage was getting small for their size they decided to put them on the “black list”… and we all know what comes after that!

We just saw a photo f them wanting to get out of their cage and it broke our heart. With the help of various animal lovers who raised money to pay for their vet and kennel fees, they were taken out of the dog pound and taken to some nearby kennels where they could be safe and well taken care of until we could bring them home.

Both brothers are calme than “normal” young dogs, they listen, play well with all the other dogs, are very friendly, also with children and ignore cats. They are also well behaved in the car.

During the night they sleep indoors and are clean, but they still need to learn many things!

They desperately need a forever home, but we are aware that it’s going to be very hard due to being mix-breeds!

We took PALOMO out of the dog pound from La Puebla de Cazalla, because he was on the list to be euthanized. He’s an absolute beauty, so gentle and loving too. He has a very kind nature and is very sensitive and observing. As he is not a “big eater”, he is quite thin. PALOMO is a galgo and podenco ibicenco mix.

You can see that he has probably been locked in for a long time, as he has little muscle. He limps a bit from his left leg, but after doing x-rays we have seen that it’s not a bone problem, but probably muscular due to an accident of some sort.

Once he gains some weight and does more exercise, the limping should disappear.

MASERATI was skin and bones when he arrived at the dog pound. He’s a large and impressive galgo. H’es a soft giant!

MASERATI can’t even move, because he is too undernourished. He spends the day sleeping and sunbathing. He eats when we give him food from our hand. This poor boy is always cold, so he always has his coat on to keep him warm and protected. We are giving him food supplements and fatty acids to try to nourish him as well and fast as possible.

When he arrived he could hardly stand and was to weak to eat. We made a nourishing soup and that’s the only thing he drank. He was always shivering. A few days later his eyes started to have a sparkle and now he likes to go for a walk around the garden. He’s now eating a stew with meat and vegetables 5 times a day and is getting stronger every day.

He will be an astonishing dog when he becomes fit and strong again.

MORRIS was found near the highway of La Puebla de Cazalla. He was covered with wounds. Probably he had been attacked by other dogs. He was brought to the dog pound but was so depressed he was quickly taken to our foster family.

He is VERY loving and gentle and good natured, but is scared when he eats. He is slowly gaining confidence and is putting on weight.

He will come to greet us as soon as he hears us coming and will not stop wagging his tail which he moves in circles which is quite funny!

HERCULES landed at the pound a few days after the hunting season had ended, last February. He was very depressed. He slowly started to recover and enjoy human and dog company.

Now he is fit and a very playful and cheerful chap. He spends the day sunbathing, playing with the other dogs and running around the garden.

BONITAs owner died and she was taken to the dog pound where she refused to eat and became very depressed. She was taken to our fosterfamily where she slowly started to flourish.

She has become an absolutely wonderful dog. She’s young, playful and always cheerful. She’s not traumatized or scared of anything and she finds everything fascinating. She loves the company of other dogs, people, children and cats. Whenever she finds something she can play with (leaves, a branch a piece of fabric…) she will take it and start throwing it in the air and picking it up again.

She’s a fast learner and is totally adorable!

TERRY is a gorgeous galgo. He is the son of a spanish champion, but due to a slight malformation in his shoulder, he has never been trained. That was his luck! Now he can play and run around without having to race.
He’s a very sensitive boy. As soon as he hears us, he comes running and doesn’t stop wagging his tail. He panicked when he first saw the stairs, but has quickly learned and now races up and down with no problem.

CAMELIA was thrown over the dog pounds fence. She was terrorized, but after being caught and having eaten she felt safer and calmer. A few weeks later she has become a very affectionate and cheerful girl. The few days that Ferrari was here, she played “mother” with him! She is still underweight, but eats and rests well, so we know she will quickly be top fit! She loves to play with the other dogs and has already found her place withing the group.

Loves to be cuddled and has no traumas. She’s adorable!

I found MORGAN tied to a guardrail on the motorway when I was coming home after having picked up some rescued galgos in La Puebla de Cazalla. They had left him there so that he would be killed by a car or he would have starved to death. It’s forbidden to stop in a motorway, but I could not leave him there. When he saw me getting close, he nearly strangled himself from pulling so hard from the rope. He jumped in the car set and slept all the way back home.

MORGAN is young, sweet, very affectionate and good with all dogs. He loves playing and being with people. He learns very quickly and has stolen our hearts.

ROSQUITA was handed in at the dog pound by her owner. A few days before the dog pound had asked us for urgent help: they had no more space and as they did not want to put healthy animals down they asked us to take all the galgos that arrived.
ROSQUITA went directly to our foster family. She has been there since November 2016 as we had more urgent cases.
ROSQUITA melts with every cuddle and spends the day walking by my side or between my legs. She’s very easy going and affectionate, but needs so much more love. All the love she has never had.

CUNERO was probably used for breeding, as he’s 6 years old and has only had one owner.

He’s got a great nature, very calm, gentle and affectionate, but he must have been hit and shouted at, because he will try to make himself as small as possible when you try to stroke him.

CUNERO, means “brought up by a surrogate mother”, so we gather that probably due to his biological mother not having enough milk, he was fed by another mum!

His front legs are looking outwards to due being his whole life in a garage with concrete floors.

AUSY spent a few months at the killing station of Ourense. No one took notice of her, until a volunteer published her on Facebook and I saw her photos. She stole my heart. I could sense her suffering and fear.

We took a few weeks to organize the transport, and a few days before they told us that she had a big wound in her back. She was taken to a vet hospital in Ourense where she was cured and spent the night. She arrived home 1 day later.

AUSY has 3 wounds and many scars all around her body, probably due to a dog fight. Luckily she survived and her wounds are healing well, but slowly.

AUSY is sweet, loving, gentle, calm, obedient and gets on well with both people and other dogs.

FERRARI was abandoned in La Puebla de Cazalla and was walking around the streets looking for food. He was skin and bones, dehydrated and very weak.

He was then brought to our foster family where he spent some weeks with other puppies. He was abandoned due to a broken front leg which has mended in the wrong position, but that does not stop him from playing and running around.

MORANTE is a very good natured dog. He’s calm and a gentle giant. He has quite a large scar on his back. He’s easy-going and affectionate, but as he is not used to being cuddled, at first he didn’t come to be cuddled, now he’s the first one to say “hi” and get a pat and a hug.

TESSA was supposed to be handed to us by her “galguero”. While he took her out of his car, she escaped. We followed her, but she was too fast and had disappeared in a question of seconds.

We called the police, the town hall, the vets and the killingstations and put posters up around the village.

4 days later we were notified that a car had hit her and we assumed she was dead. We live 45 minutes away from this village and we had lost all hopes of finding her.

The police had published a post in Facebook asking citizens to help us find her, because her body was never found in the area where the car accident had occured. 3 months later I received a call at midnight that TESSY had been seen eating at some bins. We could not believe it! We knew it was her due to the collar she was wearing. No one could get closer than 10 meters and she would immediately run away if she felt threatened or scared.

A lovely spanish couple decided to feed her every single night at the same place and at the same time so they could at least know where abouts she was moving. Every night she would go to eat her smelly sardines!

Another dog rescue association was very kind to lend us a large trap cage and on the 22nd of september we set the cage and sat inside the car a few meters away and waited. A few minutes later she came running to eat the fish, but was very wary of the care, so she went around it for a few times until she realized she could only go in to get the sardines. 5 minutes later she was in the trap and from there we put her in my car. I had taken my own galgo, so that she would have company and would feel calmer.

What is amazing about TESSA is that since the moment she went into my room and jumped on the bed, she is not afraid of us, wags her tail and comes to us every single time, follows us everywhere and is enjoying her life as never before. She is still scared of men and also of people she doesn’t know.

She’s highly intelligent and it’s amazing that shes survived during the 3 summer months with the blasting heat, hardly no water and surrounded by tourists and cars.

She looks stunning and is in great shape!

MARISA was rescued and taken to a pet hotel where she was waiting together with Stephan, George and Marisa for over a year. All 4 are adorable and we don’t understand why they have not been adopted yet! When we picked them up they jumped in the car full of joy and slept all the way back home.

NAYARA was seen by some ladies in a slum in Sevilla. They tried to get close, but couldn´t. As it was getting dark they went back to try to see her and catch her. They saw her, but this time she had a big bleeding wound in one of her shoulders. It was pitch dark and she was scared. They caught her with the help of their own dogs, as she wanted to smell them. Poor NAYARA was shivering. When looking close at the wound, they found that it was a recent wound but it was infected. It was probably caused by someone trying to get rid of her microchip or someone hit her with a stick.

The next day the wound was treated by a vet.

One of the ladies who foud her called me crying. She didn’t know what to do with NAYARA, no we felt we couln´t say “no”.

NAYARA is a noble, gentle, sweet and affectionate middle-sized galga. She loves everyone and is a cheerful and easy-going girl.

CASPER was found staggering by the side of the road. He was covered in frost and was shivering so badly that he could hardly walk. He was picked up by one of the dog pounds but, as the pound was full, we organized a transport so that CASPER could go to a pet hotel. He hated being locked in and suffered from stress. He was finally taken to our actual foster family, where he has enjoyed having a warm bed and as much food as he wanted.

At Galgo Freedom he’s enjoying having so much space to run and play with his mates, but he would need a home where he can receive more attention and cuddles.

CASPER is a gentle and good natured dog. He gets on well with both males and females and is very affectionate and kind. A great dog.

COPITO was left tied to the dog pounds gate in mid winter. That morning they found him covered in frost and even though they had no free space, they decided to put him inside the bathroom so that he would at least be a little bit warmer.
COPITO was left inside that bathroom for 1 week, no one told us and we don’t know why. A volunteer called us for help and we immediately organized a transport for COPITO to go to our foster family.
He left the pound and was incredibly stressed. It took him a week to recover, calm down and become the playfull and joyfull dog he is now. He had never seen a toy, so when he came to Galgo Freedom the first thing he did was grab a toy and start throwing it in the air. He will play with anything he finds.
COPITO gets on well with all dogs and is very affectionate with people. He has a gorgeous white coat that shines.

On the 4th of february we found Titán on our way back home. It was easy to catch him, as he desperately wanted to be with people. He was not well kept, but had a microchip. We talked to the owner and it was a lady who had just moved to an apartment with 2 small children. She told us she didn’t want to have Titán back. That was Titáns lucky move!

He’s a great dog. He was fostered by family Tavernier, whom also took care of Martha. Both had a great time together. They flew to Zürich and are being fostered by Hundepension Grisette.

DANDY was lying in the street at La Puebla de Cazalla, Sevilla. He couldn’t stand up, he had no more strength. He was completely undernourished and dehydrated. People thought he was dead. A lady called the dogpound and Irene went to help. She found a living skeletton lying at the side of the street. She took DANDY to Bea, our vet and he was immediately connected to a drip and wrapped with warm blanckets. He stayed at the vets for a few days until he started to eat and wag his tail- he had won the battle!
He could not stand up as he was still very very weak. His paws were orange from being soaked in iodine. Galgueros do this to heal their wounds as fast as possible so that they can keep hunting with them.
DANDY is a gorgeous galgo: large and majestic. He loves to be with people and other dogs and is starting to “smile”. He eats 4 times a day and even though we can still see all of his bones, he will become a beautifull dog!

WHITNEY was brought to the killing-station in La Puebla de Cazalla, but spent there only a short time, as one of the pounds workers took her to a pet hotel in Écija where she spent 1 month, but due to stress she was not eating enough, so she lost weight.
She was then taken to our foster family where she gradually put on some weight. She is with us now and enjoys lying in the sun, running around the plot and „chilling-out“.

ESTRELLA is a mix-breed female with beautifull long hair an gorgeous orange eyes that show how scared she is and how much she has suffered.

ESTRELLA was taken to the dog pound in Sevilla. They thought she was a male, so they put her in the “male section” where she spent a whole year. Males are usually euthanized sooner that females as they are harder to rehome. But as “he” was beautifull they decided to wait until “he” found a home. A few days before she was due to be put down, some volunteers went to save as many dogs as they could and took ESTRELLA with them. When they got ESTRELLA inside the car, they noticed some blood stains and thought ESTRELLA had a urine infection, but after checking “him” out they realised it was a “she” and she was on season!!! As soon as it was over, they castrated her and took her to a pet hotel. They thought she would soon find a home, but that didn’t happen. She stayed at the pet hotel for 4 months and seeing that no one showed any interest in her, a friend of mine found out about her story and ask us for help. At that time we had an overload of abandoned galgos and we couldn’t take any more dogs in, so we agreed that as soon as we had space we would take her in. A month later she was taken from the pet hotel where she was to our foster family in Sevilla. We then picked her up and she came to Galgo Freedom.

ESTRELLA is a traumatized dog that needs to have a stable life in a very caring family.

SANDY was handed in to the dog pound by her owner, most probably because she’s not a pure breed galgo, so who wants that?

She loves to be cuddled and enjoys playing with anyone or anything she finds!
