One year ago we already received this complaint and since yesterday it is in the hands of the police and the urbanization where the 3 dogs lived……
Unfortunately one year ago nothing was done but during the last months thing became really bad and finally yesterday was the day that they were liberated from their difficult and inhumane situation….
A Spanish family with 3 children and 3 dogs was living in an urbanization not far from our refugio, since many years the neighbors complained about the fact that the dogs never came outside, they were crying night and day out of boredom……. They were sitting on their terrace 24/7 and saw their life pass by…..
When the family went away for an evening or a few hours, the dogs were locked up in a dark cellar underneath the garage, during the last time.
The Podenco ( Margret) is the female of the family, the black mix (Marlin) the male dog and the small 3 colored one(Marcelina) is their puppy that was born accidently ( ? )…….
The dogs were the best friends and playmates of the 3 children but even a small walk once a day was too much to ask for……
Non of the 3 dogs has ever felt grass beneath their paws and they are totally unfamiliar with the world around them. They only know their family, they are not skinny but they have been mentally abused by being locked up during their whole life…..
Living with us, they are now sitting like a heap of misery, all 3 crawled together and shivering, they undergo their new life……
They don’t know yet that things will only become better, they are 3 projects that have to get started. We will keep them in the front of the refugio and will watch how these innocent creatures will get used to this world again….
It will be difficult for a while but they are now on their way to happiness…..
