Grace is roughly a 2 year old fawn bitch found in the Killing Station in Southern Spain.
In all our years this is the thinnest dog I have ever seen still alive!! She is a very happy girl now as you can see from the pictures, but she needs to be rehomed to a family either with a castrated medium to large dog or on her own.
She is very affectionate, loves her cuddles and never wants to be separated from her foster mum.
We have been contacted by Spanish Stray Dogs asking for help to re-home Grace. The foster mum has done an amazing job of taking Grace from the brink of death and transforming her into the girl she is now.
As a Society we feel it is imperative to work together and help each other out. Is there anyone who would like to adopt this beautiful girl; she is still in Southern Spain?
Yes, she has had her ears cropped, such a shame. Please contact us if you able to help in any way. Thank you.
Update Friday, 31 August 2012
Here is a quick update on how Grace is getting on!
After the first couple of days when she was really quite quiet, things have now perked up a lot. Grace had not barked for the first few days so we wondered if she could! Anyway she had her first woof at the goat and since then is the first one of the 3 dogs to woof at everything that goes by (see, you have to be careful what you wish for!!).
She also has a liking for eggs, which showed itself one day when we had gone out - we came back and she had raided the egg plate and all around the kitchen were the remains of egg shells. She also likes digestive biscuits as we found out after having a packet on the floor when we had people round - Grace was secretly guarding them and Niko got a bit too close so she told him off!
I think she fancies herself as a French chase dog as any opportunity she has, she will chase the chickens and the cat, fingers crossed at the moment as nothing too serious has happened.
She gets on well with Ozzy the old boy and also with Niko who she will run and play with but I think Niko is a little bit unsure of her as she is bigger than him and also he gets a little bit jealous of her but again it gets better day by day. She is very good in the house, she either lays on the kitchen floor when we are there or on her settee when we are in the lounge.
So we can report that we are very happy with her and we feel she is very happy here - see photos!
