This handsome guy is Gordon and Jordy for short ! He has a soft short black an tan coat, and he stands at 45cm high to shoulder and 50cm long. Hes a friendly chap and he reminds us of a Dobie boy. Jordy is cat friendly and we think we can check him with younger children if required but he has a lovely nature so we think he will love having children to play with and get cuddles. JORDY is just a very lovely boy, beautiful inside and out! He is friendly and affectionate and very handsome and just asks for that special someone to fall in love with him.
Breed : Podenco cross ( looks like a Doberman )
Age : 16 months
He was rescued in February last year with his 2 siblings as they were found dumped in the Spanish town when they were only 6 weeks old. Both his brothers have been adopted locally in Spain but poor Jordy is still waiting.
He spent the first 2 months in a temporary local foster home until he was old enough to join the pack of other puppies in the puppy refuge.
He is a super teenager, loves cuddles and lots of fuss but like all our dogs needs far more than they can give him at the Spanish shelter, both in affection, exercise and love. So Jordy is now in a foster home in the UK.
He loves his foster home in the Uk but his bags are packed and he is ready and waiting to be noticed so he can move one last time to his forever home.
Fosterer’s report :
Jordy is a lovely boy, a bit timid, so friendly, playful, he played as soon as he came in, at last he is getting a chance to be a puppy, at 16 months old he has never had the opportunity before, he is like a kid in a sweet shop, his eyes darting everywhere trying to take it all in.
Considering he has been in the refuge since he was a puppy he has toileted mainly outside, but I do have 2 dogs so he will learn from them. He slept well, he eats well, he takes food from you gently, he is a really sweet natured boy.
He is a little underweight due to being in the refuge but that will now be addressed, he has been for a walk, he walks brilliantly on a lead, does not pull at all.
He needs someone to carry on nurturing him and show him how good life can be and there is no need to be scared anymore, he will make in my opinion a great family dog, he adores playing, and as I write this I can see he has taken every toy out of the house and it is now in the garden!
He likes to roll on his back on the grass with his gangly legs up in the air, and this is just my observations from more or less the 1st 24hours, I know from fostering that dogs that come in to foster change all the time and he has started.
As for measurements he is very skinny, he is a Podenco cross so they are not massive anyway but he is underweight, he does fit at the moment a mini Julius K9 with room still left so that gives you an idea.

For Dogs coming from Spain and Portugal
This adoption fee is a contribution towards the costs of rescuing the dog- microchip, passport, vaccines, tests for S European diseases, neutering (if old enough), parasite treatment and transport to the UK.
We can not home dogs from Spain or Portugal 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.
Adoption Fee : £ 285 – to be paid direct to the Spanish rescue to cover travel costs via UK bank account
