This dynamic duo is known as Tom & Jerry. They were rescued in Spain and are both 10 years old. We're not totally sure if they're brothers but they were taken from the same hunter and were also rescued with Tango & Frankie, who are also available for adoption! They're also totally bonded to each other and will need to be placed together.
These boys were actually adopted in Spain together & lived in a home for several months. Thru no fault of their own, they were returned to the rescue and in working with Project Berta, one of our partner groups in Spain, we decided that it would be in their best interest to bring them to the US to find a new family where they .
These boys love to go for walks and hikes and would be great walking companions for an active family. We feel that they're not cat safe, although they've not been tested with any yet. We also think they would do best with kids over the age of 10. These special boys are being fostered in FL.
Our sweet old guy Fernando could tell a lot of stories but unfortunately a lot of them would be sad ones, based on the scars on his body. He was more than likely dropped at the shelter by a hunter & was probably used to hunt wild boar. This dashing gentleman wants nothing more than to be loved on for the rest of his life. The amazing Estela from Proyecto Berta saw him at a perrera while picking up two other Sanctuary seniors & ended up going back to get him. He looked so sad that she just couldn't leave him there. He quickly learned how to enjoy all the comforts of family life with his foster family like dog beds & treats. He hasn't been tested with cats but we doubt that he'll be cat friendly. The best news for this dashing dude is that he's now in the US & currently being fostered in MD.
Please send us a message if you'd like to learn more about him!
This handsome hunk of galgo with just a touch of a Roman nose is Greco! He's a distinguished gentleman of 7 1/2 who's been overlooked because he's shy with new people but great once he knows you. He's also not friendly with cats but likes calm dogs of all sizes. He would prefer to not live with very active & hyper dogs. He also won't do well with kids under the age of 12. He's negative for all diseases & is currently being fostered in Indianapolis, IN!
Diego is a sweet old pod who hasn't gotten the best out of life but he's on to bigger & better things because he's now in the US searching for his forever family.

He takes some inexpensive meds & a supplement along with kidney food to support his kidney function. If interested in adopting this sweet old man, please send us a message! He's currently being fostered in VA.
This little boy was found in very bad condition. Extremely skinny and among several injuries, one likely resulting from being hit with a pitchfork. He was rescued and was in a shelter but was then attacked by other dogs twice. Lucas then stopped eating. Thankfully he was then helped even further by Bring Portuguese Podengos to Light. This sweet 11 year old is currently in the US looking for love. He's being fostered in VA but can't travel for the right family. If interested in fostering or adopting this boy & giving him the forever that he's always deserved, please send us a message!

Flora & Lina are either siblings or Flora is Lina's mom. We don't have any idea which it is but we definitely know they're related. Both these girls are podenco mixes from Spain. They were abandoned by their hunter in Spain & spent a LONG time in a kennel. They're not only black, podenco mixes, but also VERY shy. Their foster family is working with them on socialization and making them understand that not all humans are bad. The jury is still out whether we feel that they need to remain together or would do better separately. Some shy dogs can feed off of each other's anxieties. We will require that their new family keep a GPS tracker on them at all times. They're currently being fostered in MA.
The handsome Mateo is a 9 yr old large sized orito mix who gets along well with dogs, but he has to get to know them. Once he does there are no problems. He has limited vision & would do best with only one or two other dogs because of his poor eyesight. He's super sweet, snuggly, & very unassuming. He was found as a stray wandering & unable to see. He was rescued by the amazing folks with Project Berta in Spain. If interested in giving this sweet old guy a soft place to land, please send us a message. You won't regret it!
Little Flora is an extremely shy podenco & is about 7 years old. Once she was pulled from the shelter it was discovered that she was pregnant but she lost all the puppies. She'll come to the US in May.
