RUBENS – one is a million

Hello! My name is Rubens and I am one in a million! Literally, I am one of the million Galgos that have been bred in the past 20-30 years. Shocking number right? I agree. So I cannot blame you for not noticing me until now.
I was born in 2011 and have been used as a ‘hunting tool’ by my former owner until he got some new and better tools and he didn’t need me anymore. He dumped me at the Scooby shelter a year ago and I must say, life is pretty good here! I get eatable food, I have room to play with my four legged friends and once in a while a two legged friend comes by to give me cuddles and a sausage. So I am not complaining, really. I am pretty happy here.
But I am curious what it would be like outside of this paddock I am living in. They say there is fresh grass, woods and water to play in, a soft warm bed to sleep in and many two legged friends to give me cuddles and treats. That sounds like a dream to me. A good dream. Not like the bad dreams I’ve been having about my former life where I sleep in a dark draughty shed and have to run until I can’t run anymore. I prefer the good dream.. And maybe one day that dream will come true! I really hope so…

Here you seen me in a video, I just woke up so I am still a bit sleepy:


SENA – 4,5 years at Scooby!!!

Please! We are desperate! Sena has been living with us at Scooby Zamora for 4,5 years and nobody, absolutely nobody has asked for her. So sad.. She is our longest resident; not something to be proud off unfortunately. But for Sena, Scooby is her home, her ‘wonderful world’. Scooby is all she knows and all she can remember. But there has to be a better place out there! A place where her many friends have gone over the past 4,5 years. A place where she will have a special person she can depend on, with a friend she doesn’t have to say goodbye to. But where? Do you know? Can you find her forever home?

Watch her movie, SHARE her movie and please help us find her forever home. Thank you!

If you can not adopt Sena, please support us financially to maintain Sena for the time she has left in Scooby.



This galguita was picked up by us two years ago but she managed to escape from the shelter.
She is the most elusive galga we have ever come across. Last year, we almost got her, but only managed to rescue her pups as they crossed the road behind her.  A few days ago we received some news from her again. She'd had  another litter of puppies and was living in a house in ruins in the residential area of Las Salinas, near Medina del Campo. It took two days to finally rescue her (it was not easy!) but Fermín finally managed to.
Now, the whole family are at Scooby safe and sound, and placed in a safe place with a roof so that this little escapist won´t get away again!


MIKI and his blanket

If Miki was telling this story he would have told you that he came, saw and concurred his blanket! But.. although Miki really wanted it to be his blanket, Silvio disagreed. Miki pulled and pulled, trying to take it with him, but Silvio came, sat and lay down on the blanket. Not to move again. Poor Miki, all he could now do is share..
Miki will celebrate his one year anniversary in Scooby soon. He would love nothing more than to have a loving family of his own by then, with his own basket and of course his very own blanket!
Miki is four years old, happy, playful and a little shy with new people. Could you help us find a nice home for this stunning big boy? Thank you so much!

Here a video of Miki and ‘his’ blanket:
