Galgo is a handsome cute little boy, with a black and tan silky curly medium coat.

He stands at medium height and he loves his cuddles and walks, he has the energy of a spaniel so wont be a couch potato.

Galgo came to a rescue in Portugal because he was living in a field on his own on a chain with no shelter and only rarely fed.  He was extremely scared when he arrived but soon started to trust people.  He has turned into a very loving and funny boy.  He loves to learn tricks and will do anything for food.  He’s very enthusiastic about his training and will learn quickly.  Galgo loves to dance on his back legs especially if he thinks there could be a treat coming his way.  However, he is not good with cats.  He’s much too interested in them.

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 apply please ask us for the pamphlet, our charity reference number is 1400005179.

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.
