The Horrific Life of a Spanish Hunting Dog
The Galgo is a Spanish hunting dog often called the Spanish greyhound. The cruelty and torment that these beautiful animals suffer is beyond belief.
To be perfectly honest I do not care what he is, to me he is a lovely dog but out of curiosity I googled and discovered that a Galgo is a Spanish hunting dog that is often called the Spanish Greyhound.
On delving further I was totally shocked to learn of the treatment that is meted out to these beautiful animals. It also explains some of my dog's behaviours, such as his obsession with bread and the fact that he insists on sleeping in an extremely narrow space under our bed. He also covers his faeces with grass and leaves which I have never seen a dog do.
Galgos are believed to have originated in Eygpt but were brought to Spain probably by the Moors in about 400 BC. They were owned by the aristocracy and were classed as prized possessions. Gradually over the centuries the breed became diluted somewhat because they started to cross-breed with the English greyhound. This was because although the Galgo is a very hardy sight-hound and great over rough terrain, it lacked the speed of the English greyhound. Speed was essential when racing became popular here.
Racing is still very popular and the racing Galgos are magnificent creatures, but it is the plight of the hunting Galgo that upset me.
Once the galgo was prized for it's hunting abilities now it is the bottom of the heap as far as the Spanish people are concerned. You will very rarely hear of a pet Galgo in a Spanish family, so you can understand it is quite difficult to re-home them once their usefulness is over.
This is why at the end of the hunting season so many Galgos are killed. The lucky ones are shot, but many are beaten to death, hanged or even set on fire. There are some that are just abandoned in the campo or countryside. The hanging is done in two ways. If the dog has performed fairly well it is hung high in the tree and so dies quite quickly. If it has performed poorly and thus made the Galguerro who owns it lose face, it is hanged with its back legs touching the ground-this is called typewriting for obvious reasons.
Hunting is done mainly at weekends and the popular prey is rabbits and hares. When they are not hunting, many of the dogs are kept in windowless shacks, fed on dried bread and live in their own excrement. (maybe this is why my dog covers his faeces, it makes sense when you live in a confined space). Some are squeezed into tiny cages piled on top of each other, and some live in holes in the ground covered by sheet metal.
At weekends the dogs are put into vans and driven to the hunting grounds. If any dog does not come back after the hunt it is just abandoned.
When puppies are born the most promising looking pups are kept, the rest are thrown down dry wells or into water channels like so much rubbish.
There are a lot of fantastic rescue organizations here that work so hard to ease the plight of these dogs. When they are rescued and nursed back to health they try to find them homes elsewhere in Europe, and many are sent to America.
I am adding some links here if you are interested in learning more, but I must warn you that some of the photos are pretty graphic.
