Dogs from Spain available for adoption

posted in: ARLGP News on:

We have 4 very special dogs available for adoption—after making a big trip from Spain!

Meet Beanie, Shamoo, Momomoo, and Vernon. These 4 boys arrived at the ARLGP from our Spain-based rescue partner, Galgos Del Sol (GDS). Vernon is currently looking for his new, happy home from the ARLGP. Momomoo, Beanie and Shamoo will all be available on Saturday, December 9th, when we open at 10am.

Watch our video of these pups now!

These strikingly handsome pups are mixes of the Spanish breeds galgo and podenco. These Spanish greyhound-like dogs are ancient breeds and a member of the sighthound family. In ancient times they were a prized possession, but currently they have become disposable “hunting tools”. They can be either smooth or rough-coated and come in a variety of colors, they are similar in appearance to racing greyhounds. They have a similar nature to greyhounds; many are calm, usually quiet, gentle and laid back.

GDS has worked tirelessly to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome thousands of abandoned galgos and podencos since they began their rescue work in 2007. Read more about GDS on their website here.

We’re very proud to give these dogs a new beginning in Maine. If you are interested in learning more about adopting one of these special boys, give us a call or come in and meet them.
