In many cases, if they are provided the proper TLC from caring people, they may come to have a great, long, and happy life.
One dog that was abandoned and certainly needed some TLC was Avellana. Like many dogs of her breed, she endured by her owner, that was a hunter.
When Avellana was no longer able to hunt any longer because she was paralyzed, she was abandoned by her owner in Spain.
Thankfully, there were those who were willing to come in and help. In particular, Galgos del Sol is a rescue devoted to helping dogs of that breed. They are based in Spain and they rescue galagos and podencos breeds.
Obviously, Galgos del Sol has quite a work ahead of them because according to their Facebook team, there are lots of who are abandoned yearly. They said:
” With 10s of thousands of galgos and podencos left every year … we combine saving as lots of as possible but still manage to maintain a high quality of living where the dogs get lots of love & focus, recovery, veterinarian treatment and time out the kennels. It’s a delicate balance which I think we do well.”
Thankfully, they were likewise there for Avellana. Even though her former owner abandoned her due to her immune illness that caused inflammation of her nervous system, the rescue was there to help her with physiotherapy and the exercises she required.
It took some time but eventually, she had the ability to move her limbs and with a lot of job, she even began to stroll once again. Avellana currently lives with Anne in a loving house where she can have fun with other dogs and live the life she should live.
