My name is Pepe and I’m an adopted Podenco from Tenerife (Spain)! I currently live a very happy life in Leiden (The Netherlands). Shortly after I was born, my owner was kind enough to throw me over the fence of a local animal shelter. Trust me
, that’s a kind thing to do, compared to what happened and is still happening to a lot of my podenco friends all over Spain.
I lived there for about six years when my human saw my photo on the internet. Kind people from sighthounds2save
gave me a second chance and it took a while, but when my human saw me, she knew I was coming to live with her.
So, I had the experience of my life, flew to the cold and rainy Netherlands to live with my human and my brother Benji, from Greece. Benji is 16 1/2 years old and has lived with my human for 14 years. He has had a rough life on the streets of Greece, but he is also living his happy, senior life! He is adopted thanks to the wonderful people of S.O.S. Strays
. (both adoption foundations are based in Belgium).
