The first days were difficult for her . I think there's an awful lot that has come off at that time for her. A different language , different people, different smells , different food, different sounds .... And she was scared ... really scared of everything! For a vacuum cleaner , a doorbell , for somebody who comes towards us when we take her out for a walk in the park, an idling engine in a car , for other dogs ....
But especially for men she is very scared .
When my father, a few days later want to take her out for a walk, she ran quickly to my studio and crawled as far away as she could, in a corner of the room , behind the curtains , in the hope that he would not see her, but and above would not hit her . My father told me that it broke his heart to see the frightness in such a defenseless dog en huge fear in her eyes. Yet it is now after a month, and she is doing very well.
Note : For anyone who wants to know more about the terrible destiny of the Spanish greyhounds : the Galgo espanols , please Google this name on the Internet in your own language and you will see how necessary it is why just these dogs need to be rescued . Each year, 50,000 of these beautiful sweet and gentle dogs are slaughtered in the most brutal manner because the hunters in Spain don't want to take care for there dogs after the hunting season for their dogs
