Galgos and Podencos are some of the most sought-after and prized breeds of hounds, cherished for their extraordinary hunting skills and their unwavering loyalty.
Unfortunately, many of their owners view them only as tools and are quick to dispose of these poor animals after the hunting season is complete. Underperforming dogs are beaten, abandoned, and even tortured to death. It's also a common belief that these dogs are better hunters when they're hungry, which motivates many owners to starve their dogs to near death.
But there is another option: Galgos and Podencos also make wonderful pets and can easily adapt into any willing household. A loving and caring home is all that they need.
