This west coast gentleman is willing to train the right applicant, in exchange for a lifetime of kindness, care, love, safety, happiness, and devotion. Seems like a good deal, right? Solace is a sweet, social, housetrained galgo seeking humble humans interested in becoming his forever guardians. Must be kind, honest, stable, mature, and trustworthy, with a securely fenced yard. PS: BoyDogzRule! (He asked that we mention that fact.)
Solace is generally relaxed indoors, often playful in the yard. He is a very smart sighthound , good in the house, rarely barks (unless there are deer outside, or other dogs start barking first), knows SIT, DOWN, UP, OFF, GO PEE, SH/QUIET, GO INSIDE, LEAVE IT/DROP IT (better in Spanish), COME (progressing), and is working on WAIT/STAY. Solace loves attention. He loves to be petted and talked to and sometimes gets excited when his humans enter. He was cat tested in Spain and tested fine. We have not tested him here, but will do so if an applicant requests it. He was also tested fine with male and female dogs in Spain. He learns quickly and is eager to trigger positive reinforcement in the form of treats. 🙂 Solace has an estimated birth year of 2012. If you want a happy, sometimes bouncy hound who is full of love, this may be your guy!
Solace will need a non climbable, dig-proof, minimum 6 foot high fence. He can be placed within 4 – 6 hours of the Oregon sanctuary or of one of our key volunteers in Northern California or Washington state. Email us to query about specific locations.

Aria is a stunning, wire-haired Galga Espanol, with an estimated birthdate of August 2013. She bonds closely with her trusted human(s) and becomes rather affectionate and velcroish, though does not exhibit signs of SA. She is hesitant with people she does not know, and will wait until they have proven themselves before trusting. Aria is smart and generally calm, though tender/sensitive. Once settled, she learned “sit” and “foot please” (right, left), easily, and it seemed she was excited when she accomplished those, as she would pop up for a big hug after finishing her sessions successfully. Aria is housetrained and is not a chewer, nor destructive. She is good on leash generally but is a bit nervous about cars on the road during her walks. She knows “come” but as with most sighthounds, that is not reliable enough for off leash when prey comes into view. Aria 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 3 hours driving distance of Gearhart, Oregon, for the right home. We may consider short driving distance of a key volunteer in Washington state or California. Email us to inquire.

__________________________ ABOUT OTHER DOGS __________________________
There are other dogs not shown here because they are not yet ready for homing. Those dogs are in various phases of rehabilitation, either for fears, anxiety, or improved socialization. Some may also need general skills training, such as accepting a walk harness, walking on a leash in public, and/or entering a vehicle, before a successful placement can reasonably be expected. As each dog achieves these basic skills and reasonable success in rehabilitation appears accomplished, s/he will be added to the page or suitable applicants will be considered for them.
