Would rather see those who hang them at the end of the hunting season, hung themselves, problem solved, well mostly.

We in England also have our fair share of abused dogs, there surely must be enough Spanish people in Spain who also see this as a disgrace and who would be willing to help.

Do not mean to sound harsh, but its about time England sort its own problems out and as a dog lover, we have much to sort out.

Peace.

Despite the horrible treatment of these dogs, you should have provided some background info. Here's one site that describes the problem without any graphic pictures. If people really want to see the evidence, it's all online on other websites. The way these dogs are treated is disgusting and not something one would normally associate with a modern European country.

Thanks Redhen.I dare not look at the pictures my wife gets sent(she is with a charity that rehomes Galgo's and Podenco's) because I would be on the first plane with a very large knife and a book on filleting skills.

My 2 Great Pyrs came from a "well respected" breeder in New York. They were kept inside cages, outside and I had to teach them how to live inside a house. Luckily she's been closed down. My border collie and Lhasa were both "bait dogs" that were found just in time and my 3 torty cats all came from feral colonies that were marked to get "eliminated". Now the woman who lives with me is on call with the local SPCA to handle the "mean" dogs and see if they are really mean or just scared ( which is most of the time) and does the home inspections for new owner candidates for the Great Pyrenees rescue.
