Dogs in Need


NAME: Oris    DATE OF BIRTH: 18/04/2018

GENDER: Female

HEALTH: Negative for Leishmania, Filaria, Ehrlichia, Anaplasma and borrelia.

CHARACTER: She is a sweetie, a very very sweet dog, very affectionate and cuddly. He is not afraid, without knowing the people he is already approaching wagging his tail and rubbing his face with your legs to ask for caresses. The girl who rescued her told us that every 3 or 4 months she usually has an epileptic seizure (without medication), and that when this happens she behaves much more timid in the following days, but so far she has not had any seizures yet. the shelter and we see a very very sociable and balanced character. In the park she is a little more playful but inside her kennel she is very calm, she spends hours sleeping alone without making a noise. The woman who rescued her and kept her in a foster home for a long time also tells us that she really likes being on the sofa at home. It is a very easy greyhound, suitable for beginners, it does not matter alone or with other dogs but since we are told that when it has those epileptic attacks it becomes a little more skittish, perhaps it would be better for it to live accompanied by another dog.



NAME: Lisa     DATE OF BIRTH: 23/04/2021

GENDER: Female

HEALTH: Negative for Leishmania, Filaria, Ehrlichia, Anaplasma and Borrelia.

CHARACTER: She is a heaven, an adorable greyhound, very noble, tender and sweet. She seems quite shy at first but she has a very peculiar way of behaving: although at first she is withdrawn and prefers to keep her distance from unknown people, as soon as she spends a few minutes with a new person Lisa becomes inseparable, she goes after them all the time looking for caresses and without separating for a second. She is calm, very sweet, affectionate and noble. She is also very good with other dogs, sociable and submissive, not dominant. She is a follower with both dogs and people, she is not a difficult greyhound but it would be preferable for her to be adopted into a home where there is another dog so that she adapts more quickly, and better with families with some experience.


NAME: Oli    DATE OF BIRTH: 24/08/2016

GENDER: Female

HEALTH: Positive for Leishmania, Ehrlichia, Anaplasma; negative Filaria

CHARACTER: Oli was found wandering the streets in search of food, in an advanced stage of pregnancy. The poor girl was skin and bones and in the first veterinary examination it was confirmed she was suffering with Ehrlichia, Leishmania and Anaplasma which directly attack her blood and add to her dreadful state of health. She was immediately hospitalised. A heart breaking story ensued – Oli, who was trying desperately to remain strong for her pups, lost each one. All but one were still birth, the last remained alive but sadly passed within 24 hours. She remains on treatment to get her condition stabilised. We so want to find her a beautiful home. She is the sweetest soul.



NAME: Ben    DATE OF BIRTH: 07/01/2021

HEALTH: Negative for Leishmania, Filaria, Ehrlichia, Anaplasma and Borrelia. Tail caudectomy.

CHARACTER: Good, calm, affectionate. He is a good and very noble greyhound, a little insecure and a follower but he is not panicking. When he meets a new person, during the first minutes he does not want to interact too much and appears insecure, but if the person remains relaxed without overwhelming him, he just approaches and begins to interact on his own, he allows himself to be caressed without running away or being held down. With people he already knows he is much more sociable. Sometimes he forgets he knows you but we feel a consistent and stable environment will help him. He is a follower greyhound who just needs time to relate and trust fully. With other dogs he is very good, very submissive, sociable, not dominant, it doesn’t matter if he is with more nervous or calm dogs. For families with experience and who have another dog.
