This lovely sweet podenco boy was found out on the streets in Jayena during winter time. He was very skinny and his body showed a lot of scars. No idea where he came from or what happened to him, but he was friendly and not scared at all from the start. He doesn't seem to have the urge to run away at all which is often the case with podencos. On the contrary, he would rather stay very close to his foster mum! He is so very affectionate and really craves cuddles.

This little black beauty was found by friends of ASAP. He looked very poorly, so they took him to the vet at once. He was skinny, dehydrated, was diagnosed with leishmania and had 2 fractures in the humerus! Three months later he looks very healthy, has received treatment for the leish and had a hip operation. He needs to be retested in July. Like so many dogs that are found left to die, he too needed to learn to trust people. Gwendolyn and her husband are working on it day by day. They even are getting him trained in obedience. He loves their other dog and plays with her. He is totally house-trained and stays on the plot, although it is not fenced.

Babs is one of the dog group that we call "the coyotes". These brothers and sisters have all been staying at Els' since they were about six months old. We expect they have been mistreated somewhere, because they are not fond of new people. They do however, warm up to people who they know can be trusted. And that's what would make them a great companion. If you have some patience, we are sure the coyotes will become your best friend. You can read the story of Obi, another Coyote who got himself a lovely forever home by clicking here.

Maïté is the mom of Tato, Turko, Sally and Zia. She was found with a nasty wound on the bottom of her left front paw, which has been cleaned very thoroughly and she is now receiving a strong course of antibiotics to fight off the infection. She is starting to walk on it little by little, so we think her paw will be healed nicely in a few weeks. She is a strong and feisty girl who loves to be near us. She will jump up - mind you that that can not be easy for her with her paw - just to be able to cuddle us more. She is a funny and playful girl who is very pleased to run after a ball, although for now we are trying to keep her calm for a bit longer. We are sure she will make a lovely pet!

MALE / about 6-7 yrs old
Clem (Clemente) was found wandering the streets in October. It is unknown how long he had been a stray. He was thin, tired and shied away from human contact. He soon gained the trust of humans when he was fed. He responded by being submissive and rolled over and then gently licked my hand. He is now being fed regularly on the street and has turned into a playful and happy boy who enjoys the company of humans and other dogs. Clem has been castrated. His name means 'mild and merciful' and he certainly is. Would be lovely if we could find him a home locally.

Candie is a lovely Border Collie cross found wandering the streets alone. She is much smaller than an average Border Collie but looks exactly like one. She is happy, sociable and loves a fuss and cuddle. Unfortunately, she had a problem with her wound after castration and she lay perfectly still whilst the vet treated it - it was as if she knew he was helping her. This is now healed and she’s back to her active and affectionate self. She loves everyone and all the other dogs. She looks and acts younger than her 18 months. She’s a gorgeous girl who deserves her Forever Home.

FEMALE / approx 2/3 years old
Bonita is a beautiful adult mastin. She has all the typical mastin traits - calm, gentle, loving and loyal. We feel she must have been owned as a pet at some stage as she is good in the car and walks well on a lead.
Bonita’s current fosterer has a cat which Bonita completely ignores. Bonita is booked in for sterilisation shortly and will then be ready to travel. She will make a lovely family pet.

Laki seems to be a pure breed German Shepherd. For the first years of her life she had the best time ever, her owner took her mountain biking with him. But then the man got sick, very sick and couldn't look after her anymore :( He chained her in a closed concrete kennel for 3 months... the kennel wasn't cleaned... Ani asked our help and Carole made room for Laky so she's safe in foster now, running free again on a big safe plot. She had to adept the first day, of course she did, what a change of life!!! But foster mom tells us she is very affectionate, loves to cuddle, likes to play fetch and is just being perfectly happy!

Boomer is an Irish Wolfhound cross but is not the size of a horse! He was found wandering the streets limping and we think he may have been hit by a car but he is fully fit and healthy now and has been castrated. He is a lovely gentle dog who is so willing to please. He gets on well with all of the other dogs and plays very gently with the puppies. There is, however, one aspect that needs to be worked on - he is terrified of a lead. We are working on this and he now happily wears a harness. We make sure there is always a lead nearby when he is eating and getting treats, we play tug-of-war with a lead and there is one in his bed! I sincerely believe that he will overcome this in the next few weeks and he will be the perfect pet.

Edward is a gorgeous young Spaniel. Edward was found on the streets of Alhama with a chewed rope around his neck so he almost certainly has escaped from somewhere where was tied up. He now seems to be reliving his missed puppyhood - he is playful, happy, sociable and full of fun. He gets on well with all of the other dogs and is happy sharing toys. He has a tendency to pull on his lead as he is so excited all of the time but we are working on this. He is a very active and energetic dog so life on a rope must have been horrendous for him. He is being castrated this week and will then be ready to travel. He will need lots of exercise but will be the most wonderful loyal pet.

This beautiful lady is a Sharpei cross. She was one of the dogs that were at the lake who Annick was patiently feeding them every day to gain their trust, before taking them in! She is now in foster with Annick, where she's a happy bunny always wagging her tail. Mira is very good with the other dogs and loves to play. She is sterilised and tested negative on Leishmania.

FEMALE / about 2,5 years old
Madrid and her seven pups were found and taken in with ASAP. She is about two years old. A definitive DOB will be determined by the vet soon. When Madrid first arrived here she was wary of us and uncomfortable. She allowed us to sit with the puppies on that first day, though. The next day we tried to get her in the car to go to the vets, but she would turn and snap as a warning if somebody tried to lift her - just to say that although she was worried about what was happening, she was not aggressive. Later that same day, she was already comfortable with us, showing that she learned to trust us very quickly. She is suuuuuuuper cuddly, jumps up for cuddles and is just very very sweet. She's very gentle with all of the pups.
