just two abstentions.

21st May 2009
Alarm bells rang with the terrible & unprecedented news that a Podengo bitch had been found in a rescue
kennel in the south of England.
However, thanks to the immediate & efficient response by two Club members, Sue Brundle & Betty Judge,
the little bitch was identified as a Podengo, then collected, vet – checked, vaccinated & micro- chipped within
48 hours of the discovery. She is now being cosseted in very safe hands while the Club makes every attempt to re- unite her
with her owners.
She is fawn, wire- haired and approximately 18 months old and had been discovered in the Crawley area, sitting
by a pond, watching the birds. She had been in the rescue kennels for about two weeks before Sue was alerted to her predicament.
As she was not micro-chipped there was no way of tracking down her owners and there hadn’t been any evidence of her
owners trying to find her, though this cannot be said for certain. It is believed that she had been in another rescue kennel
prior to this, which is extremely worrying to say the very least.
Sue & Betty said the poor little bitch is very nervous & unhappy, which is hardly surprising in the
Please could everyone spread the word, especially those living in the south, so we can achieve a happy ending
as soon as possible for this little girl.
Betty will cover the story in the Breed Notes in Dog World & Our Dogs & the Club will also contact Dogs
Lost in case her owners have contacted them. Hopefully someone, if not her owners, may be able to shed some light on how one
of our precious Podengos has had the misfortune to end up in rescue kennels. Let us all hope that a situation like this will
never occur again & that hopefully her owners will come forward very soon.
Our thanks to Sue & Betty on a job well done, we know she is being loved
& well looked after.
