When a rescue animal is collected, it is taken to a residence or shelter. There, it will begin to adapt to the new environment. If and when a galgo is placed in a foster home, it is important to check that it does not suffer separation anxiety. If it does, we reducate the galgo in order to overcome this.

Similarly, it is also important to re-educate a galgo to teach it good hygiene habits, such as toilet training on walks and not stealing rubbish or food, since the latter has been the only means of survival for nearly all animals who have lived on the streets.

It is necessary to observe the galgo’s behaviour, with a view to ensuring its recovery and growing trust in people. The galgos gradually adapt to their new routine (such as the timing of meals and walks), as well as becoming used to interaction with other animals, whether dogs or cats, whilst we monitor their behaviour.
