Supra is a larger Podenco Ibicenco, and special sweetheart. He came from Spain in 2016 when his rescuer there died in a car accident  He had been abused as a hunter’s dog, he was very traumatized, and had two broken legs during his time on the streets of Spain. Yet Supra is a very sweet, gentle boy who is somewhat of a velcro dog to whomever he bonds with, wanting to walk and stand around with that person, looking into their eyes (ok and getting cookies), but until he trusts a person, he backs away from touching and getting too close. His future family will need to be willing and ready to work on building a foundation of trust with Supra. He is not aggressive; he simply backs up or runs off if an untrusted person tries to come near him.  He is great with all the other sanctuary dogs and is good on lead as well.

Aria:: Female:: Spayed:: 4 years-old:: Galga Espanol

Aria is a stunning, 4-year-old, wire-coated Galga Espanol. She is hesitant with people she does not know, however, once you've earned her trust she is incredibly affectionate. Aria is housetrained and is not a chewer, not destructive. She is good on leash generally but is a bit nervous about cars. She knows “come” but as with most sighthounds, that is not reliable enough for off leash when there is prey in sight.  She can jump quite high and she is very fast.  A minimum six-foot high fence with no climbable parts or items nearby is crucial for her. Aria may be placed within 6 hours driving distance, maximum, of Gearhart, Oregon, for the right home. For more information please contact Hound SanctuaryOnly available for adoption on the west coast.
