Pregnant dog which need a new home  

pregnant01 pregnant02

We live in a big community centre above Velez Malaga and we have always been surrounded by wandering dogs. Since summer there has been one particular dog which kept on coming and we kind of silently tolerated his presence. But now we found out that the dog got pregnant and we are facing a problem as for what to do now since there is no possibility for us to keep neither the big dog (the mum), nor the puppies.

But we don’t want to let the pregnant dog and the puppies die out of hunger and we are desperately looking for someone who could take care of the mum and her future puppies too. As I wrote, we are an international community centre and we are bound strictly by “no dogs” rules, so there is no chance the dog can stay here with us.

The mum is a big white female dog and we don’t know anything more about her since she’s the typical “perro del campo”.

Is there any chance you could take care of the dog or help us to find a proper home for her and her future puppies?

Thank you in advance for your answer!- kristina.skrabalova @ gmail.com

Please contact me if you have found them or have any ideas who I can contact to find them. Have tried police.
Many thanks.
