I just want to alert everyone that unfortunately some Portugese people will not hesitate to plant poisoning if they are afraid of your dog or worried about their flock. We just left Portugal because our beautiful healthy Rhodesian Ridgeback died from poisoning. We were out on our usual walk and apparently shepherds might have put poisons -- by the time we realized our boy was really sick (convulsions, diarrhea, vomiting, trembling of back legs) and got him to a vet - it was too late. The vet explained they have many such cases each week and they feel hopeless at the situation. So be careful! and don't hesitate to go the vet at the very first sign that something is wrong. Best.

I visit Albufeira twice yearly and always feed the birds in the central square (old town).  Does anyone living there also feed them?  I am always concerned about their survival as no-one else, bars,cafes etc seemed to bother about the poor things.  You can email me on suzannethorpe123@btinernet.com

We rescued a Little Owl from the main road 2 weeks ago, I do not think it is an owlet it is about 9 inches high. Is there a bird sanctuary or perhaps anyone with knowledge of wild birds who can take on the responsibility,  We have a colony of cats on our land we feed, so loathe to let it free at present. .

Hello everybodyMy daughter's dog, Raul, a big male, black fur with some white in paws and face, looks like an husky but it is a mongrel, disappeared in the area of Armação de Pera last sunday, the 19th of August. As he runs a lot he might be trying to come back to his home in the area of Santa Bárbara de Nexe. He could be anywhere in the Algarve. Please if you think you saw him, contact me and I will send pictures to confirm it is him or I will go immediatly to check. We are desperate. Please help us.Thanks. Isabelmob. 966879802

Hi everyone who has a dog here in the Algarve........I moved here in may this year 2012 and coming from a big city where I have always had a dog (West Highland Terrier by the way) ...... very clever and well trained........ I am shocked to find out how unfriendly cafe owners are!, I don't want to take my dog inside but I think it is also not nice when I was walking by the beach (not on the beach) and decided to have a coffee some snack and water on a terrace that's outside which was also empty being 10am in the morning..... and was told i could not sit there with the dog......who was on his lead........... they say it is the law is this right ? As most of us who have dogs here and bring our dogs here they are a part of our family........ Also the same subject wanted to take the train up to Lisbon.... from Faro....... for the dog it was also full fare whichI paid return...... and the dog was on the floor the whole journey ........ asleep. then the Conductor, who was very aggressive and could only speak Portugues,e which yes is right this is Portugal but some off us are trying to learn the language also..... tells me that the dog should have a muzzle on in the train. which I was not told at the train station when I paid for the ticket........... but sitting in first class and small children running from the buffet car and back in to the compartment the whole journey was ok...... It is kind off putting me off moving here for good if this is the way people who care and look after there animals are being treated........

Please can anyone tell me where there is a decent boarding kennel for my little dog. Must be clean and the owners must be dog lovers. After visiting a couple in the last few months, I am losing faith. Please help.
