Story, Personality, Others:
Four sisters were brought to us from a hunter/hoarder who kept his dogs in horrible conditions.
The plight of podengos in Portugal is equal to the plight of galgos in Spain, only less mediatic. When they serve for hunting they are kept in small cages with minimum or no food and transported in masses in trailers behind the cars for their master’s amusement (hunting). When they don’t serve anymore they are abandoned or killed.
If given a chance they make wonderful pets… They are gentle, social, friendly. they get along beautifully with other dogs.

Fours girls came to us rescued from one of those places. We guess they don’t serve for hunting anymore otherwise the hunter would not surrender them so easily. They came to us skinny and scared but they are slowly gaining confidence. They are gentle, friendly and gaining trust. They wag their tails when we approach and they play with each other and other dogs. Such nice girls.

Lina is lovely and gentle. A bit shy at the first encounter but in a loving home she will blossom. Out of the four sisters she is the one that is the most curious about new things and is gaining courage by day!
