Galgos for Adoption

 


Vival

Age: 2yrs 10 months

Sex: Male

Cat Safe: Not Tested

Vival is still trying to get used to his new life. Vival’s life before he was rescued by Fundación Benjamín Mehnert had to be a very bad life. He still has many fears, but they are slowly becoming less and less. He still has fear of people, including me, but he is learning Amanda and I can be trusted. You can see in the video the times he forgot about his fears for a short time, and you can see the little bit of joy he is experiencing.

Vival is looking for a family that is understanding and patient while he learns about his new life. He enjoys attention but has not built his confidence up enough to ask for it. In time he will be a loving family member to some lucky family.


Randy

Birth Date: 15/01/2015

Weight: 29.3 kg

Gender: Male

Cat Safe: Yes

Randy just turned three this past January. He has been in his foster home since March 11th. At first very shy and reserved, Randy is slowly showing his foster family what a gem he is. He is still a bit tentative when meeting new people or in unfamiliar places but with encouragement he comes around. In his foster home he is very comfortable. He sleeps most of the day and is fine when his foster family pets him during sleep. When awake, he looks out the windows watching the squirrels (with great great interest). In addition, he follows Dali, his foster galga sister everywhere. They play together and also follows her when she is being trained. In fact he has learned a thing or two from her, like waiting for his meals or waiting to go through a door. Dali gives him confidence. She is encouraging him to play with toys. He comes readily for treats and his main meals. He is walked 4 times a day, walking well on a lead, and is nearly house broken. The few times that he has been around cats, he has either ignored them or wasn’t aware of them. He is fine with the foster family’s 3 year old grandson, basically ignoring him. In the evening he sleeps next to his foster family on the sofa. At night he sleeps upstairs in the bedroom with family.

In summary, Randy is a sweet and gentle Galgo. His personality is still developing. He has shown he is trainable and works for treats. He would do best in a family with another dog and respectful children. With patience and encouragement, Randy will make a wonderful companion.
