My name is Ice and I am a Spaniard. I am a breed of dog called Galgo, but Hilly says she thinks my mother must have been frightened by a Saluki! She also says I am absolutely stunning, so I will forgive her.
Galgos are used for hunting in Spain and, at the end of the hunting season, the unwanted dogs are disposed of in ways you don't even want to think about. The worse we are at our job, the crueller the method used to dispose of us.
I was one of the lucky ones, I was rescued by a wonderful organisation called Scooby and, with my amigo Nano, made my way to DAWG, where I have spent time gaining confidence. I am now in a foster home with other dogs and a cat, but I am ready to find my forever home with somebody who will be kind and patient with me and continue my education. As I am quite a nervous boy, I would prefer to be homed with older children. I am believed to be only about two or three years old and am about the size of a female greyhound.
If you think you could be the one to offer me a permanent loving home, please contact one of the trustees to arrange a viewing.
Hasta la vista
As we have only limited history on most of our dogs, we usually only rehome with children eight years and over.
Dogs are only ever released to homes which have direct access to securely fenced gardens.
