As the availability of retired racing greyhounds dwindles with track closures, we set our sights on rescuing other breeds of special needs hounds. The plight of the Podenco is forever on our minds and we knew that we could help dogs from Spain. We brought over three Spanish Podencos to date, but the two oldest hounds have crossed the Rainbow Bridge.

The Podenco Angels
Bria Podenco was our second senior Podenco from Spain. She was a tiny tot compared to the retired racers but there was nothing tiny about her strength, wherewithal and determination. Bria was the champion hole diggers and kept an almost constant lookout for squirrels and toads. She protected us from vermin, but we were powerless to protect her from the horrors of bone cancer. Her passing left us empty and raw. We miss her every day.
Eva was our first, our oldest and our wisest. She was horribly abused and her past was never far from her present. Her body was a testament to her previous life and her emotions were shaped by her abuse. We understood her quirks and her reactiveness. She cheated death once while in Spain, but she couldn’t live forever. Rest easy now, Eva.
