From Heaven to Hell: The Story of the Galgo Español
This book is about the Galgo Español, a breed so sleek, beautiful and elegant. It traces the history of the Galgo from being a companion animal of the aristocracy and royalty to its present day maltreatment as vermin.
Beryl has provided a very detailed and informative book that will take you on an emotional journey but also empower you with knowledge.
My goal for posting this book on my website is in the hope that at least one person will read it and then for this one person to enlighten one other person to the plight (or holocaust) of the Galgo.
Galgo fun fact
Galgos have the best blood for transfusions. It is the most oxygenated and the best quality.

If you lose your dog…
First of all, your dog must be microchipped. Then, make sure the microchip is registered with your local vet where you will fill out a form for the Archivo de Identificacion de Animales de Compañía. When your dog goes missing advise the Archivo on the following number 934189294.
How to report abuse
Call the Guardia Urbana on 092. If you see the maltreatment in the street, the police need to see the perpetrator in action to be able to take it up with them. If it is happening in your building, you can report the disturbance.
