Tana -in Spain
FEMALE DOB 01/01/2018 - sterilised
Tana is a beautiful German Shepherd who was found abandoned in Alhama but had obviously
been taken care of at some point. She is about 4 years old, neutered, weighs 30kg and is quite
calm, affectionate and playful. She gets on well with other dogs and cats and is house trained
but will need more lead-training as she tends to pull a bit. Although she has been diagnosed
with Leish, she has no apparent symptoms or scarring. She has been receiving treatment and
will need to continue on Allopurinol for another 18 months, with blood tests every 6 months to
check her progress. Tana will make an excellent companion or family pet, so if you can offer
this lovely girl a permanent home, please contact us to adopt Tana.

Turca - in Spain
Female - DOB XX/XX/2014 - Sterilised
Turca's owner had to go into hospital and is unable to return home, so this very sociable 8-year old is now in foster. Here is an update from her fosterer.
She is a lovely dog. She was very nervous for the first couple of days, shying away from us and our dogs. Coming out of the security of the cage to eat and drink. With lots of patience, she has adapted surprisingly well. She is more confident, she is getting on with our other dogs, but mainly prefers human company, sitting beside us on the sofa. She is very well house-trained, with no indoor accidents. She enjoys going out for walks very much and is good on a lead, which she was not used to when she arrived.
She is a very lovable dog and would make a great pet, once she gets gets to know you.

Benji - in Spain
Male DOB 01/06/2021 - Sterilised
Benji was taken in by a family as a puppy and kept as a pet for about18- months, but mainly on a chain in a small patio. So, he was quite a nervous dog when he arrived at his foster home, but after a few days he started to relax, showing his true character. He loves being with his fosterer and wakes him up each morning - wagging his tail, nudging his hand with his wet nose, waiting to be stroked. He gets on amazingly well with the cats, who share the house and he has his own space, which he'll go to on command. He initially wasn't sure about walking on a lead, but now he walks with confidence. He loves to be with other dogs and people and he's so easy going. In such a short time he has become a lively and happy dog and thoroughly enjoys his walks. He never strays far off lead and would make a true companion or family dog. He tested positive to antibodies for Leishmania and is currently receiving treatment for this. However, he has no clinical symptoms of active disease and we hope the treatment will put him into full remission.

Ramón - no longer available
Ramón was rescued a few months ago and went to live with a variety of other animals on a small farm. Unfortunately, he developed a keen interest in cats and kittens and hasn't yet learnt to control that interest! He's sociable with other dogs and puppies and relaxes well in his temporary foster home, but he's a bit of an escape-artist. He's also house-trained and has just learnt to negotiate stairs. He's very affectionate and recently tested negative for the 5 main Mediterranean diseases. We're currently looking for a more secure foster home, without cats or an offer of a permanent home.

Trini - in Spain
Female - DOB 01/01/2019 sterilised
Trini is desperately looking for her forever home. She is a very special 3-year old long-haired Podenco, who has been lovingly cared for in foster for over a year while she was nursed back to health. She is a calm, lovable, people and pet-friendly dog, who was treated for Leishmaniasis, earlier this year. This caused loss of hair on her nose and scarring on the tip of her left ear, which is improving all the time. However, it doesn’t affect her personality or energy level, so she is affectionate, friendly, and lively. Trini is house-trained, lead-trained, doesn’t bark, and loves to play with other dogs in the dog park, or go for long walks. If you could give this little girl a future by giving her a home, you would be well-rewarded not only with a fun, playful and affectionate companion, but also with the knowledge that you have given a very special dog a new life. Please contact us to adopt our lovely Trini.

Lottie - ADOPTED in Belgium
FEMALE - DOB 05/05/2021 sterilised
Lottie is in foster with Hetty and they are very close to each other. They were both found abandoned in the Campo - possibly by a hunter. Both girls were starving and very scared of everything. However, they are now much more sociable and very healthy. Lottie is the more social of the two and wants nothing more than to be a loved member of the family. She loves to be fussed and stroked and especially likes her bum rubbed. She loves her food and she is chubby compared to how she was when she arrived. She does still get very scared in new surroundings and will actually shake until she realises that nobody is going to hurt her. She loves to play ball. She also gets on extremely well with the four other dogs owned by the fosterer but is a terror for chasing the cats. The fosterer also owns chickens and Lottie not bothered by them at all. She walks quite well on the lead but it takes a while as she has to check for danger before moving!!The fosterers take them into town regularly where they sit well at the cafe and allow themselves to be stroked! Lottie is initially wary of strangers who come to the house but relaxes after a while and will slowly approach for a stroke.
Lottie will need some time to settle with a new family but will be a fabulous pet once she gets to know her new family and surroundings.

HETTY - ADOPTED in Belgium
FEMALE DOB 05/05/2021 - sterilised
Hetty was found in the Campo - probably left behind by a hunter. She was very hungry and afraid of everything. Now she is much more sociable and completely healthy. She does run into the house in the morning to be petted, but if you make too sudden a movement, she jumps away again. She is learning to play with us. She is very smart and only recently started accepting dog treats from us, as she had remembered that is how we always caught her. She is very aware of her surroundings and is interested in it, which helps her overcome her shyness. She walks well on a lead, but is easily distracted and wants to sniff everything. She doesn't mind being petted by strangers when she's on the lead. She is a sweet, gentle dog and will make a good companion for someone who has a little patience with her. She gets along great with our other dogs, but does chase the cats. Strangely enough she likes to be in the run with our chickens, ducks and turkeys and then leaves them alone, but when they are out of the run she chases them.

Snow - ADOPTED
MALE DOB 01/06/2020
Snow is a typical mastin - a gentle giant. He is extremely friendly and loves to lean against you and have lots of cuddles. He’s great with other dogs and would benefit from going to a home where there is a playmate for him. It is clear that Snow did not have a proper puppyhood and was probably taken away from his mum far too early. In his current foster home there is just a small dog so Snow has decided to ‘play’ with his fosterer in puppy-fashion - jumping-up and play-biting - this is being discouraged as he is growing into a strong and powerful adult and he has to learn that he’s a dog!!!
He likes long walks - he does a lot of the walks on his own. Snow’s fosterer lives in the campo and Snow is clearly used to wondering around on his own - probably trying to find food. The fosterer states “When I walk with him, he keeps his eye on me, but doesn’t stay with me the whole walk. But he always returns to our home. I let him wander, because he’s used to it. It’s a new life for him, I think he will change a lot in the future”. He will chase cats if he sees them running but never hurts them and if the cats stand their ground and don’t run, then Snow just ignores them. He is a little older than 18 months. The fosterer is feeding him good quality food so he can go from 45kg to the 70kg he needs to be.
He has been tested for the 5-Mediterranean Diseases and was positive for Anaplasma and had a borderline serology result (40 IFI) for Leishmaniasis, but has no clinical signs of the disease. He is receiving doxycycline for the Anaplasma and will take allopurinol for 6-months before a retest.
Ideally, an adopter will have a large garden and a big dog for him to play with. The fosterer’s land is not fenced and Snow did wander off a few times in the beginning but now he knows that his fosterer loves and feeds him, he always comes back! He still follows the fosterer’s car if she goes out but then waits for her on the edge of their land. He’s a bit reluctant to get in a car but once in, he settles nicely. Snow is a wonderfully affectionate dog who will be a fabulous pet. He sleeps in a fenced outside shelter at night.

FEMALE 01/01/2020 sterilised 31/3/22
Chica is a small energetic dog with a big personality. She enjoys the company of both dogs and cats. Chica loves to play with her toys. She is quick to learn.

Chica prefers relaxing next to us with her head on our legs rather than on our laps in the evening. She is relaxed in the car for short journeys. She has been sick on longer journeys, especially on winding roads. She enjoys walking in the campo and is very inquisitive of her surroundings. Chica likes to dig up the mole hills. Chica is a very lovable, funny, playful dog and will make a wonderful family pet. Fine with the family cat.

Tinto - ADOPTED
Male DOB 01/02/2021 sterilised
Tinto is a beautiful Podenco Campanero with a glamorous strawberry blonde, wavy coat. He was found abandoned on the streets, living off rubbish. He was rescued by a member of ASAP and is now in foster in a home with three other large dogs. They all get along famously.
Tinto is quiet and calm in the house; he is house-trained; and he has the sweetest nature. He loves attention and cuddles. Out on a walk he is a bundle of energy, running around all over the place and playing with the other dogs. After some initial uncertainty, he’s discovered he loves playing in water too. His breed is used for hunting and Tinto definitely likes to try and pick up a scent and follow it! His recall is currently good, and we’re working on improving it. The good thing is that he doesn’t go too far even if he’s a bit too busy to come when he’s called! And he knows when it’s the end of the walk and often he just appears and jumps in the car. As with many street dogs, Tinto tested positive for some internal parasites and he is receiving treatment. This ends in mid March 2022 and he will be clear of the condition. Tinto would make an ideal family pet for people who like going out on great walks so he can expend his energy.

Dalí - ADOPTED
Male - DOB 20/12/2019 sterilised
Dalí is one of those dogs who melts your heart. Despite being so badly treated by someone - found with a rope around his neck on a short chain with several injuries to his face and badly infected ears - he remains a loving and affectionate young boy. He has been in foster for four months and is thriving. Unfortunately, Staffordshire and Dogo Argentina are classed as dangerous dogs in Spain so his passport says ‘Labrador cross’ but as you will see from the photos, he does have some staffie or dogo argentina in him.
He is very people focused and very boisterous when playing so probably best not to be with small children as he may knock them over. He is a friendly bulldozer.
His wounds have healed nicely although he does have a tear in the cruciate ligament on his back right leg. He is not in pain with this and it doesn’t stop him from doing anything - running, playing and jumping although he sometimes limps in the evening if he’s been very active all day. He is taking a glucosamine supplement to support the joint and will need to stay on these.
He gets on well with the fosterer’s other dogs but actually prefers the company of people - as you will see from the photos. He has been castrated, is fully vaccinated and ready to travel on 8th April.
