Patty is a 2 year old female Cross-Breed. We will never know how an animal feels being enclosed in a 2×2 meter kennel fighting to survive surrounded by other dogs in the same situation, with fear, stress and without a future.

Sleeping on a hard and wet concrete floor and being either very cold or very hot – because they are outdoors. Patty arrived at the pound in Northern Spain some time ago.

We do not know anything about her past life, but she was frightened when she met us and didn’t move, so we can imagine that her past life was not easy. She is a beautiful girl of small size (weighs 10 kg approx.).

She will need time to trust and get out of herself, but we know that as soon as that happens, she will flourish and be a wonderful companion, she just needs someone to show her the beautiful sides of life.

Patty will have an amazing life, if we find the appropriate family for her, a family that won’t overwhelm her and that understands that she may need time to adjust and get used to her new life.

We assume she was a hunting dog. This kind of dog does not know what living in a home feels like and some dogs need more time to adjust to the new situation.

Hunting dogs are smart and all our adopters that chose to give a home to one of these dogs are happy for having given them an opportunity because they are very good dogs, noble and also beautiful especially inside.

Patty has not been tested with cats. She is social with other dogs and we think she has a medium activity level, but it might also be or become higher, why her new home should have that in mind and be able to offer her more activity in case she needs it to be a happy and balanced dog? Taking her young age into account Patty is looking for a middle-aged home without young children.

A home that has the time and commitment to work with her and get her used to a typical situation like traveling in the car, walking on a leash, meeting people, traffic noises etc. She is a beautiful girl that needs to gain confidence to show how sweet she is.

The pound in Spain is in general a tough place for any dog, but for sensitive dogs like Patty even more, so we hope we will find the right forever home for Patty asap.

If you think you can offer her the right place, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Patty is ready and can be homed to England and Wales (not Scotland). She will be tested for Mediterranean diseases, will be microchipped, vaccinated, neutered, defeated and dewormed and have her passport.

TeLuMa’s Dream

For further details regarding adopting a dog from TeLuMa’s Dream, please email Olga, Jessica or Greta at or visit our website We are a Spanish voluntary organization which rescues primarily dogs from a public pound in Galicia, in Northern Spain, where the dogs instead of living, are trying to survive. 99% of the dogs are strays or have been abandoned by their owners on the street. The dogs are a variety of breeds and come in all shapes and sizes! We are funded entirely by donations and work hard in our free time to help rescue and rehome as many dogs as possible. With your help we can continue our work and provide food, bedding, medical supplies and care for the dogs until they are well enough to find their forever homes. All dogs rehomed via TeLuMa’s Dream are microchipped, fully vaccinated, wormed, deflead and spayed/neutered if old enough, if not the adoption contract will stipulate that this is done as soon as old enough and this will be checked with your vet. We re-home dogs to England and Wales and in some exceptions also to Scotland, if it’s specified like that on the dog’s description. Our aim is to pair each dog with the right new owner, ensuring that it will be safe, cared for and loved for the rest of its life. Therefore all potential adopters will be asked to complete a questionnaire. Also a homecheck is carried out and a video call to adoption. Please note that we never reserve dogs in advance of our full process having been carried out. We reserve all final decisions on compatible dogs until after the home visit, so please bear in mind that your application will be considered a general application for adoption until final confirmation has been given by both adopter and Teluma's Dream. We offer a full rescue back up service to all our adopters and post-adoption support, which includes a Facebook support group and free behavioral advice.
Please also be aware that all dogs who are adopted through TeLuMa’s Dream remain part of our extended family throughout their lifetime. We ask for regular updates during the settling in period following their adoption, and for an ongoing quarterly updates and follow ups after that for the duration of the dogs whole life. We are committed to our dogs and our forever families and this allows us to support you and your dog, but at the same time, knowing how the dogs are, receiving updates and keeping us informed is also the reward for all the efforts, time and costs that are involved in saving each dog. If you feel happy with this level of communication then we would be happy to hear from you.
