Today is Día del Galgo – Day of the Podenco – and since this beautiful and extraordinarily intelligent breed is one of the most badly treated, police ask that the public denounces any cases of maltreatment and abandonment they become aware of. These dogs make fantastic pets, but most often they are kept as hunting dogs, and far too often there are reports of cruelty such as you would hardly believe. They are routinely abused, beaten, starved, abandoned and killed. The Guardia Civil say simply “denounce”. Just call 062.
