“One day, however, I came face to face with a stray galgo looking for help. It’s hard to explain the connection that I felt but when he looked at me with his soulful eyes and stretched out that needle nose, I knew my life had changed forever.

“Galgos del Sol is now responsible for over 100 galgos and additional podencos and mixed breeds.”

It is a licensed charity in Spain the UK and US.
