Born In A Sewer, 2 Years Ago Today!

Recommended Posts

Today it is 2 years ago that an abandoned highly pregnant galga found shelter in a sewer pipe.
A few days later the volunteers from BaasGalgo rescued her and her puppies.

One of these puppies made a long journey, from Spain, to the Netherlands where he was fostered once he was old enough and on the day he turned 12 weeks, he came into our home.

We love our crazy boy, he keeps us on our toes and is a wonderful ambassador for the galgos through his pictures and a perfect example of how silly and active they can be.

Let me take you through the first 2 years of his life…

Whenever I see pictures of these Galgos, especially the "before" (in Spain) and the "after" (in their homes now), I can't help but think of Cinderella!!

 

Here's to a fabulous "happily ever after", Lehto!
