History : Our precious Carisa is waiting for her big break! Carisa was given to us along with Lea, another Galga, in mid-July 2022 by the previous owner, who due to his advanced age, has stopped hunting, so he no longer needs the dogs. Carisa and Lea lived, unfortunately like hunting dogs, in a kennel all their lives. Unfortunately, this kennel was not completely leak-proof, so the group of dogs went on occasional solo excursions, and as a result, Carisa was pregnant when she was handed over. As a result, there is now another litter of puppies that has to be cared for by the shelter’s volunteers. Fortunately, Carisa was able to give birth to the puppies on August 1 in the safety of a foster home. Carisa will now spend at least two months with her cubs and will therefore be ready to leave at the earliest, October 2022.

Description : Then finally the time will come and our galguita will have the opportunity of a new and, above all, happy life as a dog. She is very sweet, sensitive and quite calm and cuddly in the house. She is also very trusting with people.

We’re looking for : However, due to her breed and also because she used to be a hunting dog, she is expected to have a strong hunting instinct when outdoors, so her new family should be prepared for this. We hope that she will soon find a warm home where she can truly feel at home. We are sure that with the right people, calm and patience that she needs, Carisa will adapt wonderfully and enjoy her life to the fullest.

Adoption costs for dogs  : ADULT 180€ / PUPPY 120€ All animals available for adoption have a microchip and passport. They have been tested for common diseases (Leishmania for dogs, FeLV and FIV for cats). Adult animals are fully vaccinated and castrated.

* Until complete adaptation, adult supervision with small children is essential.

** This means we have tested the dog with cats in the shelter and has shown no reactive behaviour, but this does not guarantee 100% compatibility with cats. Therefore, we always advise that cats and dogs are together only under surveillance.
