Beautiful and gorgeous Carlotta (Otta for short) is a female, puppy, Spanish Greyhound called a Galgo. She has a black and white, soft, shiny coat and she was rescued a few weeks ago as she was in the pouring rain and looking for shelter something to eat near the garbage. (Sadly, we dont know where her siblings are and we hope they are safe)
In Spain, the Galgo breed is one of the most mistreated dogs, used for hunting and at the end of the hunting season, they are abandoned or killed, really an awful life, so thank god we saved her from that and more puppies.
When she was first rescued (see photos) OTTA, she was very skinny, but luckily very healthy! She has grown into a wonderful Galgo puppy, very health and fit, beautiful and full of grace, silky and shiny black coat, with attractive white markings on her face and a white spot on her chest.
OTTA is very nice girl, absolutely so friendly with dogs and cats.
She has very sweet, mild nature, is obedient and extremely affectionate.
Please apply if you have another dog and children over 10 yrs
Her Best Points :
Foster Report :
OTTA is also quite sensitive, she cannot be left alone for long hours, and she will be very happy with another dog. She needs safe garden 6 ft fenced, to keep her from chasing little animals she might see as prey, such as squirrels, rabbits. As all the puppy, she is lively and playful, she needs to walk and run to burn off her energy! But also she likes to sleep, like all Galgos.
Because of her thin coat, she needs a warm coat to wear in cold climate.
OTTA is a wonder of nature when she runs! So elegant, so light, so fast! wonderful to watch
VERY IMPORTANT POINT: she MUST walk always on lead, as all hunting breed she never be allowed to run off leash except in a securely fenced area, if she sees a rabbit she runs like the wind. OTTA it’s a wonderful puppy, give her love, care and exercise, you will have an adoring, cuddle bug companion for life.

Adopting A DogWatch UK Rescue Dog
Before being adopted, dogs will have been 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.
All new owners will need to change their new dogs microchip information to their contact details. This costs £17. If you would like us to arrange this for you, at a reduced rate of £7.20, we will ask you to do a bank transfer to allow us to register the change.
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.
