Sabueso, 4 Years Old

UPDATE: Pillina, now almost 4, was adopted last year after travelling to a UK foster home originally. Sadly her new family have had a big change in circumstances and are struggling to meet Pillina’s needs, so despite being heartbroken, they’ve decided it’s the best thing for her to find a new home.

Pillina has been living as an only dog but she would also love a home with another dog for company too! She adores other dogs and loves to play. She does best with somebody around most of the time so we’re looking for a home where she won’t be left for too long. She’s also been living with a young child who adores her and the feeling is mutual, although she is a bit clumsy and likes to use her paws a lot so any young children would need to be confident around dogs due to her size, but she has an absolutely wonderful nature.

Despite being a hound, she has good recall in general and loves going for walks of course! She’s toilet trained in her current home although does need a little work on her house manners when being left alone which will need worked on gradually in a future home.

Her mum says she’s just the best, the most amazing little lady!

HISTORY: Pillina is a two year old female Sabueso (a Spanish hound).  Her date of birth is 07/06/2019.

Pillina is a really stunningly beautiful, young hound, she was handed in by her hunter as he did not want her. She is affectionate with people and very obedient within the confines of the shelter, but of course this may be different on walks with lots of exciting smells.

Pillina is good with other dogs, however she arrived at the shelter extremely thin and she still is nervous around her food, so she is fed separately to the other dogs. She is a dog of strong physique and a lot of energy, she might be an ideal companion for someone wanting to try trailing.

Sabueso are a lovely breed, used to hunt wild boar and other game in Spain. They are bloodhounds who earned their name due to their noble character. Sabueso are smart dogs who need mental stimulation as well as being active. Sadly it is also a breed that typically gets overlooked in the shelters, but we hope this will not be the case for Pillina.
