Old man Tango is a regal & noble pod who was no longer of use to his hunter. Tango gets along well with other dogs & currently lives with a cat in his foster home. He weighs about 65 lbs & will need a patient & understanding family to allow him time to blossom. He's currently being fostered & is available for adoption within driving distance of PA.
Update: Relva is now RESERVED!
Relva is a Portuguese Podengo mix. While Relva is only 2 yrs old, he's considered special needs because of a horrible injury he sustained to his front leg/shoulder area, probably at the hands of his former hunter. Once Relva arrives to the US, we'll be consulting with an orthopedic specialist to determine if the leg is salvageable or not.
Sweet little old guy Frankie is about 25 lbs & just wants to be someone's velcro dog. He would make a great lap dog for TV watching & would love to sleep in bed with his person. While Frankie is absolutely wonderful with other dogs & even tested cat safe while in Spain, he does NOT want to live with men in the house. He prefers women & loves to ride in the car & act as navigator. He's currently being fostered in VA & is available for adoption on the east coast.
Sweet little Nina is currently residing at Casa de Postas in Spain & will come to the US this fall, once the temps cool down enough to ship the dogs safely.
We don't know a lot about Nina yet but we do know that she's roughly 10 years old & on the smaller side, roughly 25 lbs.
Sweet little Jimena is currently residing at Casa de Postas in Spain after being pulled from a shelter in Spain. She will come to the US this fall, once the temps cool down enough to ship the dogs safely.
We don't know a lot about Jimena yet but we do know that she's roughly 11 years old & on the smaller side, roughly 25-30 lbs.
Sweet old lady Africa is also hanging out with our friends at Casa de Postas in Spain. Lady Africa was pulled from the same shelter as Naia was by the amazing folks with Proyecto Berta. Africa is roughly 9 years old & weighs roughly 35-40 lbs. We hope to know more about her personality soon as she settles in. She'll be coming to the US this fall. If you're interested in adopting Africa, please send us a message!
Our sweet little guy Pedrito is a Podenco Orito & on the smaller side. He's a shy guy but warms up once he gets familiar with people. Pedrito is currently waiting at Proyecto Berta & will come over this fall.
UPDATE: Pedrito has been reserved for a foster family who intends to adopt him, if he loves it there.
Little Estela is a small bodeguera. The Ratonero Bodeguero Andaluz is a Spanish breed of dog of the terrier type. Its name reflects its main occupation: hunting rats and mice hidden between barrels in the wineries of Andalusia in Spain.
They are tenacious, entertaining, lively, and sweet-tempered. Estela is roughly 12 years old & was the personal dog of a hunter in Spain. When she was given to Proyecto Berta, a rescue group in Spain the Sanctuary works with, it was discovered that she was actually too heavy to be sterilized! So she's waiting out the summer months & has been put on a diet so she can come to the US to find a forever family this fall.
Momma Mima is a 12 yr old podenca who was rescued by the wonderful folks at Mandy's Rescue Dogs in Spain. Mima had several mammary tumors that were removed & thankfully the vet was able to get good margins. Mima is currently still recovering & will come to the US this fall to look for a forever family. She's good with other dogs & quite soulful.
Julio is a fairly young boy who's had a rough time with life already. He was rescued 2 years ago in Spain by the wonderful team at Casa de Postas & couldn't use his back legs. After successful surgery & rehab, he currently walks without assistance & gets around fine. Unfortunately he's had no interest so we couldn't say no to this sweet boy. We hope that by bringing him to the US, we'll be able to find him a wonderful forever family.
Dori is a 10 year old Breton, known here in the US as a Brittany. Dori has been at Casa de Postas for quite some time & just wants someone to love on her all the time. She would make a great lap dog! Dori is only about 25 lbs & is diabetic. She also had to have her right eye removed some time ago.
Naia is a podenco mix & is about 8 years old. She's a super sweet & laid back girl, who only wants someone to pet her constantly. Naia was pulled from a shelter in Spain by the wonderful team at Casa de Postas. We hope to bring Naia over this fall.
Ariel is quite a young podenca but when she was first rescued she was totally shut down. Over time she's slowly started to emerge from her shell but there's still something going on with her & she may be deaf. She's continuing to be monitored & assessed by the team at Casa de Postas & we plan to bring her here to the Sanctuary to assess her further this fall.
Old man Dylan is a hound mix who's lived his entire life outside on a chain & is around 10 years old. We want to change that so we're working with Grateful Greyhounds to hopefully get Dylan adopted here in the US. If you think you would be the perfect family to make Dylan's last years the absolute best, please send us a message!
