• DAY 168: HOW THEY WERE RESCUED

    A quick update as to how these two dogs were caught…amazing stuff

    I have a bit more info from an English lady out in Seville called Linda who is currently looking after the rescue dogs. She is good friends with Olga and the gang.

    “I have a very good friend and dog lover, Miguel, who is the man you call when you are desperate to catch a dog. He arrived in Arahal at a quarter to five and by seven he was calling me to tell me that he had both dogs in his van”

    Apparently, the galga was caught first and only later the podenco (called Martin!).

    When Martin the podenco, who had not seen the rescue of the galga, could no longer see his mate he started howling repeatedly for her. For over an hour he desperately searched for the galga until he fell into the trap of food and rope. Now that he is in safety he seems more concerned about being with his friend than having his wounds attended to.

    Throughout the worst of times dogs keep their bonds. We could learn a thing.

    1. WTG, Miguel!!! Such a relief to know these precious dogs are now in safe hands. Bless you all!

    2. Fabulous stuff. Well done everyone involved!

    3. Bravo Miguel!!!!!!
      When the time comes I do hope these two will be adopted together. It would be sad to split them up with the bond they have.

    4. This is Miguel who works at Fundacion Benjamin MEHNERT! Isn’t he amazing? He has rescued so many dogs from the toughest of situations. I will show him this Friday. Thank you for giving him the credit he so deserves.

    5. Bravo Miguel the man who whisper in the ears of the Galgos and Podencos ( and tell them they have to come with him πŸ˜‰ )
