Hi Does anybody know of an inexpensive, compassionate (maybe asking too much) Vet. My dog is having a couple of problems which I need to sort out but cannot afford the 'High Street Vets'. Loule area if poosible. Thank you

Hi Have you lost or know anyone who has lost a small white, caniche type dog. It's a boy and was found in my garden this morning. He has a dark red collar on and is calm and sociable. Doesn't look old (maybe only 1 or 2 years old but not certain) and looks like he has been cared for. If you know whose dog this is please call me on 919 626 234. Dawn

I would like to present to you a shelter Cantinho da Milu, in Palmela/Setubal - south of Lisbon.The place is a amazing - very big, at least a hectar of land. But so many dogs! Around 400 dogs rescued from the streets, in need of new homes. It is overwhelming. It belongs to a lady, Milu, who had bought the farm and have been rescuing dogs for years. She works there herself every day with help of a few hired people but no volunteers (the place is not very known and off beaten track). She has very little donations so she buys everything herself: food, vaccinations, medications...Very high running costs, so any donations welcome. She concentrates on giving the dogs quality of life - they all live in "parks" - like in the Dogtown in the US, none of them is on the chain (!), they are all vaccinated, sterilised and medically treated if needed. Over 200 of them have been checked for leshmaniose in order to identify it early if any of them had it.I was surprised how good the conditions were as it seems nearly impossible that so few people would be able to take care of so many dogs. The dogs are happy, lovely and sooo adoptable. But she does not have time for adoptions. She has no time to publish dogs on the Internet, build her own site, make home visits. So many wonderful dogs are there, those that could easily have a home and due to the lack of human resources they are not getting those homes.We are a group of 15 people: we set a group that is called Dogs of Portugal and we will be looking for homes for Milu's dogs. We will be adopting dogs in Portugal (and for good adoptions distance does not matter to us) but also abroad, to Holland, Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Norway on the basis of contacts we have previously developped. I have noticed that many expats are willing to help and welcome home a rescue dog. So I am optimistic. Moreover, there are some breeds that are "preferred" by certain nationalities: English people love water dogs, pointers and labradors, German people love podengos and Dutch people love serra de estrela dogs. They are all there, in the cantinho! We deliver the dogs home, Algarve, central Portugal, it does not matter.The dogs are sterilised, vaccinated, dewormed, tested for leshmaniose (the whole shelter, 400 dogs, have been tested).I would like to present you with teh new blog of Dogs of Portugal, featuring dogs for adoption from Milu:http://dogsofportugal.wordpress.com/Each dog has several pictures in a slideshow.(We will soon have a webpage.) and with our YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/DogsofportugalYou can contact us at dogsofportugal@gmail.com or call at 937 317 491

My dog needs a ride back to the UK before 25th January 2012... she is a seasoned traveller, sweet tempered and obedient. Her passport is in order, she has very little luggage and I am prepared to pay a good share of the travel costs. We have a crate to use if necessary....Can you help?

I have found a young dog, very small, tan with a black muzzle. He only weighs around 4kg. He was wondering around Algarve Shopping, Guia yesterday (Saturday) and was being shooed out by security. The guard told me he had been wondering in and out of the shopping centre all day. He has a red collar and looks clean. He has a really sweet nature and I think he must be less than one year old.If you know anyone who has lost a little dog please contact me urgently. I am going to the UK for Christmas on 22nd December.Telephone Amanda on 96 719 4603 please.
