Female GWP around 2yrs old

Daga is a beautiful young female GWP, we don’t yet have a formal estimate of her date of birth but we think she is about two years old.

Daga was found in truly awful conditions and many of you will have seen the appeal we put out for her, and many of you have given money to help towards her rescue and treatment. Daga’s owner had died, and when a relative went to the farm they found several animals in awful conditions, including Daga chained up outside. Over the years her chain collar had become embedded in her skin and so someone had put a second one around her neck to use instead. It was truly horrific.

Since then Daga has been well looked after in foster with Charo who helps run AELA. Her wounds around her neck are healing up and she has adapted so well to family life in a household of dogs.

Daga loves contact with people, she is very affectionate and quickly picks up the routines. She is great with male and female dogs and loves to play with the younger dogs. We think she would prefer a home with other dogs.

So far in her foster home Daga does not seem as active nor as biddable as some GWP, but this may change with time. It is clear that she has been chained up for most of her life so far and this may be why she is not yet as active as some.

Please do read up on GWPs if you are thinking of applying, they are wonderful active and intelligent dogs with strong prey drive, they do have the most beguiling of faces but they are not just a teddy bear.

Daga, Ray with Fabian
