Trasgu, a small black pequinese mix

Trasgu was found roaming the street - it turned out a man who could not pay his rent had left the house AND two dogs. Trasgu is a small dog with short leggies and short hair. There may be some pequinese mix in him.
He lives in a foster home now, in an apartment so he is house-trained, he loves cats, walks on the lead and travels often with his foster mother by car.
His only "bad" trait is that -as so many small dogs - he thinks he is a big dog and can be dominant towards male dogs.
Our Trasgu is such a well-socialised and loving dog that it seems strange nobody has wanted to adopt him yet!

Trasgu and kitten Minoes - he is more than patient...

Bola, a young terrier mix - found a home

Bola has found a home in Germany!

Little Bola is a very young dog, estimated about 10 months old. She looks like a mix between a terrier and a German shepherd, but she is only about 45 cm high and aprox. 15 kg.

We found her 28/11/09 tied up next to the perrera - as usual. She was sooo afraid! After a week she was already a lot better. She had to stay in the kennels as we had no space in our foster homes, but after her sterilisation she'll go to Pedro's house.

Bola is a very friendly dog, she gets on well with people and with other dogs. She is a calm dog and walks well on the lead. If you are talking to somebody, she'll just lie down next to you and wait until something is happening again.


Reina, boxer-sabuesomix - found a home

Reina found a home in Asturias, where they are very happy with her. She loves the little child and has already met the horse!

Reina is about 3 years old and seems to be a mix between a boxer and a sabueso. She is broad-shouldered, about 55 cm high and probably a good 25 kg - but very shy with a wonderful brown-coloured skin and incredibly friendly eyes that speak of a not very happy past.
She was found tied up to the perrera 21/11/09 - a usual occurrence. We immediately had her sterilised, one problem out of the way, also as the dear owners tend to get rid of the dogs if they see they are pregnant. Somebody else will pay for the operation...

Tommie, puppy border collie mix - found a home

Tommie has found a home in Zaragoza! His new family drove the 500km to ASturias to pick him up!
Tommie three weeks apart - 14/11 and 5/12. He was left near the little perrera in Infiesto, we found out he is half border collie. We think he was born in August 2009. He looks adorable and is a very active and open puppy. As a border collie mix he will need a good education. He is not in the perrera now but in a foster home in the mountains with our volunteer Mark with two other dogs. At the age of three months he weighed 5 kg and was about 25 cm high. He gets along with all other dogs, is struggling with being house-trained and defn¡initely has his own ideas - although at the same time he is very loving. He is a dog for people that can dedicate time to him and work with him so he can make use of his intelligence and need to be doing things.

Boy, young labrador mix found a home in Asturias

Boy is a young labrador mix, maybe 1 or two years old. About 55 cm adn 20 kg. He was found in the mountains of Piloña (Asturias) together with Uma and the dogs were recognised as belonging to somebody who did not treat the dogs very well at all. Boy is a nice young dog who does not understand why he is in a cage now. He is not used to walking with a collar at all, he is afraid to move with a collar on (the first day). He is very friendly towards people and deserves a home! He is sociable with other dogs (male and female) and people.


Uma, boxer mix found a home in Switzerland

Uma is a boxer/shepherd cross, medium sized (55 cm aprox, 20 kg). She looks to be about 4 years old and may have had ligament problems with one of her back legs, which is quite stiff - according to our veterinarian volunteer. She needs to gain a bit of weight as she is very thin. She was found in the mountains with her friend Boy. Another volunteer recognised the dogs - they were usually left to their own devices by the "owner". She seems to be a friendly and quiet dog. Definitely not at home in the cages - a dog in need of a basket near the heating!

Kas, young sabueso - found a home

Kas is adopted in Germany! (March 2010)
Kas_141109 (2)
Kas was passed on from one hunter (who treated him badly) to another (who felt sorry for him). But Kas is a pacifist - he is not a hunter. So Kas had to go...
He is a young and very friendly Sabueso/grifon. They are the big-eared dogs that make ideal pets: he is not dominant, likes people and other dogs, loves to come for a walk, he is not inclined to run off at all. Sabuesos are very calm dogs.
Kas was born in 2007, he weighs 22 kg and is about 50 cm high. A bit rough on the edges still but considering the life he's had, he is incredibly stable and well-tempered. Suitable for any kind of family!

Amaia, a young German shepherd ADOPTED

Amaia is less than a year old and she was found near the perrera - nobody asked for her. Maybe she was abandoned because her back legs are not 100% perfect, although the running here does her good. She is a very intelligent and loving animal. She is a born retriever and never leaves your side. She is agile, jumps up and down like a lunatic when she is enthousiastic and sociable with all the (9) other dogs.
Adopted in Germany 5/12/09

Gris, a small young German shepherd - ADOPTED

Gris had been adopted in January 2009 - he was just a puppy really and was returned (financial crisis?) just before August (summer holidays?). He is a handsome and very nice, active dog. He still needs to learn a lot and he needs to gain some weight. He is absolutely nice, and not a dominant dog at all.
More info in German - adopted in Germany November 2009. His name is now Bino.

Solchi - Young Pointer mix - found a home

Solchi found a home in Germany with another pointer!

Solchi is 1.5 years old and Sella's brother. He was adopted a year ago but due to the owner's personal sitation he is back at Pedro's house now. Solchi is a very active, elegant pointer mix. He is thinner than a pointer, we think there is some setter in him as well. Aisha, now adopted at the donkey paradise, is most probably his mother. He is very sociable with other dogs, both male and female and loves people. As an active dog he will need a place where he can run a lot - also because he is still so very young.

Milou, fox terrier - old but so what - ADOPTED

Little Milou was found hiding under a truck. The metal ring on his collar was broken and he had obviously been on the end of a chain. He is a bit small and harmless to be chained up.... Milou gets on well with all the other dogs, cats and people. He loves lying in the car and prefers a quiet life. If the other 8 dogs are too noisy, he goes and hides in a corner, preferably in the van.

The vet estimates his age around 8 years - there's a lot of life in him yet. He jumps up and over the walls without any effort. He has a slight heart murmur but no problems with that.

Milou has found a home in Germany in a family with two other older dogs!

Lisa, an adorable little fox terrier ADOPTED

Lisa was adopted in Germany 1/8/2009. She has a new 'brother' - another foxterrier!
