Alfie needs a home: This gorgeous puppy is Alfie, AAR 2073! He was abandoned in the campo and rescued by a kind lady. Alfie is a podenco cross of about 4 months. He is inquisitive, loves socks and playing with other dogs and has the most amazing aquamarine eyes. Walks very well on a lead, barks at cats at first but then seems to lose interest. He started out all scared and timid but after only two days he is a happy, confident chap. Alfie has leisch on his ears, according to the local vet that should not be a problem at all for a long and happy life. Alfie is currently near Comares if anyone wants to come and say hello, he is very very cuddly!
Contact: liz AT ab DOT tl ; or AXarquia Animal Rescue for more information.


Wanted: Dog training. We have an extremely affectionate and home loving bodaguero, except when he gets it into his head to go exploring. Once he gets out of our very well fenced garden, he becomes a free spirit and will not respond to our calls or enticements, until he has tired himself out exploring the countryside. We are getting very desperate, as we do not want to lose him, have him get hurt or cause damage, therefore we are appealing for anyone in Digameland who has any ideas about how we can contain him (we’ve already spent a fortune on fencing), or know of anywhere where we can take him for obedience training. We are in Competa campo. Please contact me (Gwen) on 672770607 either phone or Whatsapp or
email me: gjp1949 AT hotmail DOT com
