Cathy, shepherd/galgo mix found a home

Cathy is adopted in her foster home in Spain - by me! And all the volunteers love her!

When my other large dog Luna died in April, Cathy was there and knew Luna and was there when she passed away. So it was clear Cathy was going to stay!

Cathy is a five year old shepherd cross with the most beautiful amber eyes you can imagine and a sweet character to match those eyes. She is used to people and dogs, and may be slightly shy in the beginning but she opens up quickly. She loves to sit next to you. All the volunteers that meet her think she is absolutely wonderful.

She is a bit thin, so she will be a bit heavier once she reaches her ideal weight.

Cathy was one of three dogs abandoned by their owner in a holiday home.  As she was chipped, we contacted the owner who first said he would pick them up but then never showed up. We are still in shock, especially as his dogs are such wonderful dogs.

Noel, young grifon found a home

Noel found a home in the Netherlands and the family and their children are totally happy with him. He is even going to a dog school with all the family members!

Noel is a small grifon, a hunting dog with long ears. He was dumped at the perrera, barely half a year old in December 2010. He is a compact size, about 50 cm and 15-20 kg. He is a very sweet dog and loves people. As with most of the sabuesos and grifons, he hasn't got a bad bone in his body.
