Filippe is approx 2yrs old, castrated, fully vaccined and negative for filaria, erlichia, babesia and leishmania.He is a little timid at first but soon comes out of his shell and loves to play with other dogs.
He is a sweet gentle soul. We will update more as time goes by on his progress.
Abby is approx 18months to 2 yrs old.
She has started her vaccines and is negative for babesia, filaria, erlichia and leishmania. She has also been spayed.

GDS has been trying to catch this girl for approx 18mths. Named Leanne, she is just so clever to have survived for so long. Finally the day came and with help we caught her. We took her to the vets and X-rayed her leg as she was limping and sadly there was a suspicion of bone cancer. Later she was admitted to hospital for a bone biopsy. To cut a long story short we are delighted to tell you that the tumour was benign. She is now well and will travel to the Czech Republic to her new home on the 16th Dec!

He once had a name and an owner but his chip has been cut out and he is left to fend for himself with an injury all alone in the streets. The wound was dirty but luckily not infected. Jenny who kindly took time to pick him up and call us saved his life. He is now in safe hands with GDS!
For all our rescues please see http://www.galgosdelsol.es/
We got a call about this podenca who was living rough in Murcia. A kind lady had been feeding her and giving water and love. It was Mel a GDS volunteer who drove out to find her and picked her up and brought her back to our vet. This beautiful girl had a microchip and her family were in tears when our vet rang to say that she had been found. She had been stolen over a year ago. They drove straight down to get her and by Mary's reaction she was happy to be reunited! Good job!
The pressure was on. Zoe had not long given birth right in the middle of a field. The most loving protective mum she made a nest out of dead palm trees but they would not be safe where they were. For one week it was early morning to late nights trying to catch mum but we just couldnt get hold of her. We tried the trap, we used out patience but no luck. Zoe had built up trust with Gill one of our volunteers and would feed next to her. So whilst getting Zoe into position with Gill, Antonio darted her. We had her, finally!!!!!
ZOE IS NOW RESERVED FOR THE USA AND WILL LIVE WITH LUNA BELOW!
Here we are again saying goodbye to 4 of our babies who are going to Belgium with Belgium rescue! Once again a big thank you to Belgium rescue for finding lovely homes for these beautiful galgos, to GIN UK for sponsoring Lobo, Juani and Brad and to Bev and Warren for fostering Dobby. GdS can pat themselves on the back also for the rescues of all 4 dogs! Good job!

Lucía llegó a Galgos del Sol recientemente y no esperábamos encontrarnos con esto: a lo largo de su lomo tiene una cicatriz enorme que va desde el omóplato hasta la parte inferior de su espalda. También tiene cicatrices en otros sitios.
Los veterinarios tienen dos teorías. La primera, que fue atacada con algo puntiagudo, como un cristal roto, y fue víctima de un grave abuso, o que fue atropellada y arrastrada por un coche.
Con tan sólo 4-5 meses de edad, nos preguntamos cómo sobrevivió a esto.
Lucía está ahora a salvo y está buscando su casa definitiva.
Ha empezado ya con sus vacunas y también comenzará rehabilitación y fomento de la confianza en uno de nuestros hogares de acogida de podencos.
Lucia arrived at Galgos del Sol recently and we didn't expect to find what we did. Her back has a thick scar running from her shoulder blade down to the bottom of her back. There is also scars running width ways.
The vets opionion came down to two theories. The first she has been attacked with something jagged, like broken glass and is the victim of serious abuse or she has been hit by a car and dragged. At just 4/5 months old we are left wondering how she survived this.
Lucia is now safe but is now looking for her forever home. She has started her vaccines and will now begin with some rehab and confidence building in one of our podenco foster homes.

This puppy was due to be put to sleep. It was Bev who spotted this poor boy looking so sad. Luckily we reserved him in time and he will arrive to us very soon. If he is good with cats and children he may already have a forever home in Belgium. Wish him luck.
Este perrito estaba a punto de ser sacrificado. Fue Bev quien se fijó en su triste cara. Afortunadamente lo reservamos a tiempo y muy pronto estará con nosotros. Si se lleva bien con gatos y niños, puede que ya tenga su casa en Bélgica. Le deseamos suerte!

It was a very early start once again for GdS as we prepared Josh, Grace and Tina to leave for Belgium. Josephine once again flew over to pick our babies up along with another beautiful galga from Noah's Arc. All 3 were brave hearted, we really felt very proud indeed. Josh you will remember took us months to catch as he was so scared but at the airport this morning he was a star, enjoying all the cuddles and attention. Grace also found a member of staff to tickle her tummy whilst Tina settled for a chin rub by a kind lady who was devastated about the fact that all three had previously been abandoned. Another successful morning.
Fue otra madrugada para los Galgos del Sol (GdS) mientras que preparábamos a Josh, Grace and Tina para su despedida a Bélgica. Josephine, voló una vez más desde Bélgica para recoger nuestros bebés mientras que una perra Galga también fue recogida de otra caridad canina, 'Noah's Arc'. Nuestros tres perros fueron muy valientes, todos estabamos muy orgullosos de ellos. Sus rescates no fueron sencillos. Por ejemplo, tardamos meses en atrapar a Josh al estar tan asustado. Pero en el aeropuerto se portó muy bien, disfrutando de todas las caricias y toda la atención. Pero no era solo Josh quien estaba disfrutando tanto, Grace hasta encontró uno de nuestros voluntarios para que le hiciese consquillitas en su barriga mientras que a nuestra tercera perra, Tina, tuvo su barbilla acariciada por una senora muy amable que estaba muy dolorida al descubrir que los tres caninos habían sido abandonados anteriormente. Otre manana de éxito!
