This adorable old man is Zar! He’s a 10 yr old podenco mix & was left at the pound in Spain by his hunter with not a care what happened to him. While Zar hasn’t had the greatest past, we’ll ensure that his golden years are the very best! Thanks to SOS Podenco Rescue for caring enough about this senior boy to pull him. Zar is about 50 lbs & looks to me like he may be mixed with lab. While he may not be a young dog, he totally makes up for it with sweetness. Zar does take an inexpensive medication daily. For more information about adopting this sweet guy, please send us a message or fill out an application! He's currently being fostered in IN but can travel for the right family.
I’m a firm believer that the eyes of a dog can say a lot & Fideo’s eyes say that he loves everyone! And they may also be trying to lure you out of food too! This big boy is a total marshmallow. He was rescued in very poor condition, as you can see in his pictures, & has made a total recovery. What’s sad about this poor boy is that he’s waited at Asociacion Protectora Argos for over 2 years! According to Argos, Fideo is a total star when they go anywhere to do public events like visiting schools. He absolutely loves everyone & the only thing he loves even more than snuggling up to people is food! He's also very cat workable. His passport has him listed as 5 yrs old but I would venture to say that he’s probably a little older, maybe around 7-8. If you’d like to make this boy’s dreams come true, please fill out an application on our website! His little helicopter tail will surely say “thank you”! Also a big thank you to Galgo Podenco Support for helping to sponsor his trip to the US! Fideo is being fostered in IL but can travel for the right family.
Ophelia came to us from Portugal earlier this year. She was placed with a family that had small dogs & it wasn't a good fit. Ophelia needs to be with other dogs her own size, at least 50 lbs & larger. She's currently being fostered with an Irish Wolfhound & also had an IW in her first foster home & has done great.
She's a sweet & happy girl & loves to go for car rides. She needs a fenced yard to get her energy out & loves to play fetch! She'll take an inexpensive medication daily for the next few months. As you can see from her DNA results, she has an awesome mixture of several different shepherds & would do great for someone interested in dog sports!
If you'd like to meet Ophelia, the next step is to fill out our application online. She's being fostered outside Chicago, IL, but can travel for the right family.
Our senior boy Toze is one of the sweetest lttle guys we've ever met. Toze originally came from Portugal last year with his kennelmate. The pair had spent over 7 years of their lives in a municipal pound. When you meet this little guy, you would never imagine it. He's the sweetest & happiest boy ever, BUT Toze really only likes women. He's ok with men out in public & at the vet, but he doesn't want one living with him. He would be perfect for a woman who's retired, works from home, or has a regular schedule to come home to let him out/walk him for a midday potty break. Not only should he be an only dog but cats are also out for him. Toze will also need some work on Housetraining 101. Right now he wears a belly band in the house, but with lots of consistent work with him, I think he'll eventually learn. Stress doesn't help with this in his foster home. Not only does he have 2 men living there, but also several other dogs. Toze chooses to not share his affection. Once he bonds to his person, he doesn't want to share that affection. Looking for an affectionate guy less than 20 lbs who adores his human & loves to be a lap dog? Toze is for you! He's currently being fostered in VA, but can travel for the right family.
Who wouldn’t want a Coconut in your life? With a name like that, you know this boy will be fun! Coco is a young boy under 2 years old, but won’t you don’t see is that he’s deaf & has been since birth. He’s fortunate that our friends with Proyecto Berta came to his aid in Spain and wanted a better future for him. This happy boy loves other dogs, is medium sized, and enjoys being loved on. He’s looking for a special family who will remember his special qualities. Coco is currently being fostered in IL but can travel. Please fill out an application on our website if you want to meet this very special boy.
This little girl came to us from Asociacion Protectora Argos in Spain & her name is Tea. She’s shy with strangers until she gets to know you, but then watch her turn into a little crazy girl! She also tested cat friendly in Spain. Unfortunately, there’s no way to estimate her age because most of her front teeth have been ground down. She’s probably around 3-4 though & on the small size. If you think you have room for this crazy little peanut, fill out an application! A huge thanks to Galgo Podenco Support for helping to sponsor her flight to the US! She's currently being fostered in NY but can travel for the right family. She would love to go for long walks & even hikes.
This is Trisha! She's a 3 year old Saluki mix originally from Oman. She came to the US in 2021. Her owner passed away & she sadly found herself with no one to care for her. Trisha is a super happy girl & is still very active! She'll need a fenced yard with at least a 5 ft fence & also a playful dog in her home. Because she plays rough, she'll do best with dogs at least 30 lbs & we'll say that she's probably not cat friendly either. She's currently being fostered in IN, but can travel for the right family!
