Police say that today is World Podenco day, and since this kind, fun, highly opinionated, beautiful and extraordinarily intelligent breed is one of the most badly treated, they ask that the public denounces any cases of maltreatment and abandonment. Stories of cruelty such as you would hardly believe are in the press far too often, and having shared an all-too-short part of my life with one of this gentle breed it breaks my heart too much to report them. The Guardia Civil say simply “denounce”. Just call 062.
