Affectionate & Handsome

Genil is a 3 year old Galgo, very sweet and friendly.

He was found by  the river Genil hence his name. He was very malnourished.

He has gained some weight, now weighs 23 kilos, but could do with a bit more weight on him. He is negative for leishmania but was positive for Filaria (heart worm) which he has now received treatment for.

Genil was also left with an old fracture in his femur. The pain he was in must have been intense. He has been examined thoroughly by the Trauma Specialist and there is no surgery required. He walks with a limp but he can lead a normal life.

Thank goodness Galgos en Familia saved this beautiful boy.

Will be going into one of our lovely foster homes in Somerset on 5th February 2022.
