  1. The tattoo for a galgo is usually to show what hunting association they are registered with. Not all galgos are hunted at that level. But we have seen more and more that are tattooed. With the hare dying of a disease and a hunting season cut short, many hunters let go of their dogs that normally would have been hunting. Killing that many young dogs would be hard to hide, so many showed up in the shelters and perreras. Their loss, our gain. We've been getting some awesome young dogs that were mostly healthy, not traumatised yet. Bom is one of them, takes her a day and she turns int

  5. Started of with the innovet pet CBD oil for my galga Cara when we found that she had Degenerative Myelopathy. When it looked like it helped her, we switched to Hemp Rx Forte and noticed she did much better on that. While it didn't cure her, nothing could, she outlived the 6 month diagnosis by almost 9 months. We also used it, on advice of our vet as a topical on her spine before using a cold laser. Other things we noticed convinced me it can be used for many things, when I started it looked like she was getting dog dementia, in a bad way, not knowing where she was, being confused. Within day

But I enjoy doing agility with my dogs and hope to be able to do it with a pod in the future also They really are great dogs, but definitely not greyhounds.
  8. Would definitely talk to Rain about your concerns and questions, not every pod is the same and some may be more suitable than others. If you'd like to do some more research on the types, I would suggest checking out this Dutch website, it has a translate button for English and if you scroll down all the way, into the green part you will see a list with almost all types and descriptions. http://www.podencoworld.nl In general, pods are a healthy breed, in Europe they are listed as 'half' sighthounds, not sighthounds. They are sturdy, intelligent, agile and totally fun dogs. If you enjoy d
  9. South Central Pennsylvania, between Gettysburg and Harrisburg, just of route 15. No cats, small dogs or young children around. Have a group of 4 sighthounds in the age of 1 to 13. Dogs that fit in to the group are welcome. Non-greys, if not too small and fit into the group are welcome also. For more info, please PM me here on GT
