Gara and Quino are a cross breed and mother and son. She is 9 years old and he is 4 months old. We rescued this little family when Gara entered with her new born baby of just some days of life the pound in Northern Spain. ). Quino was a small ball that fitted in our hand and Gara was extremely tired when she arrived. It seemed that she was tired of living and that the only thing that kept her in this world was her baby.

With the support of many people we were able to get them out of this awful place and into a boarding kennel where Gara was able to raise Quino in a safe environment. Gara did a great job with Quino who is the center of her attention and she spoils him a lot. Quino is very affectionate and is always looking for cuddles, although he is a bit shy. He loves to get attention and treats. We don’t know the father of Quino, but taking into account his current size and the size of his large mother we are sure that Quino will be a large sized dog of about 35kg or maybe more when full grown. He is a puppy and obviously an active dog, so he will probably have a high level of activity when fully grown up.

Gala is a sensitive dog that needs to be with someone sweet and gentle because if she is told off or knows that you are angry, she bows her head in submission. She is social with all humans and other dogs, both male and female. Her only vice is that she chews and breaks the plastic beds in the boarding kennel. Gara has probably experienced a terrible life and Quino is the only thing that she has, because she adores him. It would be heartbreaking, especially for Gara, to separate them, which is why we are looking for a home who is happy to take both.

Gara and Quino are looking for a dog experienced home, especially with large sized breeds. Quino is a typical naughty puppy and Gara is a haven of peace. The education of a puppy is time consuming, therefore we are looking for a responsible home without young children. Neither has been and can't be tested with cats or children.

Gara and Quino are ready and able to travel to Wales or England (NOT Scotland) as soon as their forever home comes forward. The person or family that decides to adopt them will take two treasures with them. If you want to give this mum and puppy a forever home please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. IN THE CASE BOTH (MUM AND SON) ARE ADOPTED TOGETHER A REDUCED ADOPTION FEE IS APPLIED.
