Oh wow we just love these Podencos!
They are so popular in the UK and it’s a real treat to see them out and about!
This hunk is puppy Bailey, he has the usual tell tale markings of tan and white short smooth coat and big big ears.
Poor Bailey and his sisters were born in the shelter and were luckily taken straight into foster. His sisters have already been adopted. The foster wanted to keep Bailey, which is why he is only just being offered for adoption, but she felt he would be better in a family home and that would then make room to help more dogs. He has the most beautiful eyes. They are same colour as his caramel coat. He is cheeky, playful, friendly, happy, everything you could want in a dog. His mother is still traumatised and currently living in the foster’s field. At the moment she is not able to be caught. Every day Bailey goes to play with her in the field together with the other dogs and the cats, but we try to coax her in each day.
His Best Points :

Adopting A DogWatch UK Rescue Dog
Before being adopted, dogs will have bee vaccinated, wormed and treated for fleas.
If old enough they will have been neutered, if too young the new owners will need to ensure this is done.
All dogs are microchipped
All new owners can apply for 4 weeks Pet Insurance FREE, to be activated from the link on our website
For Rescue Dogs coming from overseas
This adoption fee is a contribution towards the costs of rescuing the dog including
– microchip, pet passport, vaccines, tests for South European diseases, neutering (IF OLD ENOUGH), parasite treatment and transport to the UK.
We can not home dogs from overseas to people who work full time or long hours, unless some sort of doggy day care is offered. They need someone at home a lot of the day, they are not used to being alone for long periods. A dog walker for an hour out of the day is not enough.
Leaving dogs a long time on their own means they are highly likely to develop separation anxiety which is distressing for them and everyone in their new home.
