Handsome Dog Needs a Home  

Found01 Found 03 Found02

We found this beautiful dog wandering on the road to Zafarraya last week, filthy and starving. Some local farmers say he had been around there for around two weeks. The vet says he is about 7 months old and has no microchip. We have wormed and Frontlined him and cleaned him up, under that beautiful, soft coat he is very skinny but we are feeding him up. He is delightfully playful and gentle, very loving and fine with our other dogs.

We would love to keep him but with three other rescue dogs already and only being here six months we just can’t, if anyone knows him or thinks they can offer him a loving forever home please contact us on anniedotbraviner@gmaildotcom

Many thanks

New Home for Negro Possible


The blog post of June 3rd had a photo of another dog looking for a good home – a chocolate podenco that was abandoned.

To correct the story – Negro is a skinny, very sweet-natured male dog who’s chained most of the time. He belongs to a neighbor who just gave us permission to find him a good home.

Negro is under 2 years old and doesn’t appear sick, but we would have him tested and help with initial vaccinations, etc., if someone comes forward to adopt him.

Contact me via email if interested. He so deserves a chance.

P.S. Thank you DigameXtra for helping so much. My neighbor used the blog to help find good homes for 3 kittens that found their way into her garden (pregnant stray cat). The mother cat is how neutered. DC

Can anyone recommend someone to regularly clean an apartment in Torrox Costa.

It’s along the coast road, (El Penocnillo area) so transportation will be needed.

If ironing services are available too, that would be  a big plus!

Contact Melissa  at macnmum AT gmail . com.

Thank you!
