Concha, Conchito, Conchitta, caught and unharmed with us...

Concha, a mama Podenco, was noticed in the rough campo with a big belly, obviously pregnant... But despite all efforts, it was impossible to catch her.. She was way to intelligent and streetwise, no success.. She gave birth to a litter of puppies, far away in the mountains, where no man could trace her.. She was so smart that we all couldn't succeed.. 
The laday that alarmed us didn't give up and kept bringing her food and water everyday, which she thankfully ate, from a distance.. and then feed her babies. After a few weeks she didn't only come to eat, but also brought her puppies, who she taught not to trust us... 
Since we wanted to domesticate these dogs, and wanted them to learn to trust people, there was no time to lose.. That is why we set up a catch cage on the spot where they always ate, at a moment that they didn't see what was built and prepared. And yes, Eureka, there they came... but from that whole family only Conchitta and Conchito were left, the others unfortunately didn't survive.. Mama was very unhappy the first few days and wanted nothing to do with us.. 
But now her puppies come up to us, almost like they are dancing, mama slowly changes, and it gets a little bit better everyday.. It is not always easy to chose between freedom in nature and our rescue, but in this heat and without the daily help of the lady bringing them food and water, none of them would have survived.. In this case it was a responsible rescue, and we are happy that they are with us...
