Jarno, the fawn Galgo, was running wild in the streets of his native Spain and suffering from mange, but he still didn’t get caught easy. He led his would-be rescuers on a long, merry chase that –eventually -- had a happy ending. Now accustomed to two squares a day, soft dog beds and kind hands, Jarno is looking for his forever home.
His foster mom says he’s a quiet boy in the house and hasn’t even tried to get up on furniture. He likes to lay his head in her lap while she sews. He got the “Sighthound memo” and doesn’t bark and he loves people. He is gentle and expected to be good around children. He has no food aggression, doesn’t mind cats and has enough “dog smarts” not to mess with the grumpy resident dog.
Jarno does have the Galgo jumping skills and has gone over a 6-foot-fence – once. He has not done it since. He loves to chase squirrels and walks well on a leash – well, until he sees a squirrel. He is a super sweet boy. He also loves to sun bathe.
Jarno is fostered in the D.C. area and is available for adoption throughout the US and Canada. His adoption fee is $650, which covers his travel expenses to SHUG, neutering and other veterinary care.
