Can anyone give a definitive answer to the rules and regulations on holidaying in the Palafrugell area with a pedigree staffordshire bull terrier...not a pit bull...a staffordshire. Everything on Google appears to be pre 2012.Someone must know if Staffordshires are still on the dangerous dog register in Spain.If so, off to Italy we go.....

Help is needed to rescue a Beagle female that has been found by a spanish resident in Murcia.  The lady does not want to take the dog to a spanish pound and the microchip has been read by a vet and the dog called Daisy is registered in France.  Les Amis des Animaux France are trying to contact the Societe Centrale Canine with the microchip details to try to identify the owners.If anyone is aware of a family who may has lost their dog whilst on holiday please send a text to this french mobile     0780443700   or contact LesAmis des Animaux France via facebook. Alternatively can you please put the Association in touch with dog rescuers in Spain to ensure this little dog does not end up in the pound and at risk of euthanasia.Thankyou to the spanish community for your help

Hi all, does anyone have any good advise?   I have a 7 month old labrador puppy who is suffering from seperation anxiety. I know it's not ideal, but she is left alone for a large part of the day. Circumstances changed unexpectedly so she is left longer than I would like. I come home from work every day and she has had diarrhea several times and tonight she had been sick as well. She panics when I leave, grabbing my sleeve and trying to stop me going. It's heartbreaking, but I'm sure there must be a way to make her feel more secure and know I am coming back to her? Any advise would be appreciated, the only thing the vet suggested was tranquilisers, but I really don't want to go down that route for such a young dog. Thanks in advance for your help.

Following on from a previous topic on feeding wild birds, a few of the forum members liked the idea of a posting where we can discuss what birdlife we have spotted locally. So - tell us, what have you seen - are there any species that you are struggling to identify?

Spare a thought for the wild birds in the winter weather - they can find it hard to find enough food and water (especially if it gets icy!)  - we put out bird food, well out of reach of cats, and bowls of water, and it is lovely seeing all our little feathered friends coming to feed.

Do we get golden eagles here? Saw a very large bird of prey the other morning, but didn't have my binoculars handy to have a good look at its outline...

I am looking into getting some different breeds of chickens - does anyone know of a breeder for silkies or marans?

I have taken in 2 dogs, 1 black labrador bitch probably about 9 years old and a puppy, possibly a Husky x GSD, male, about 5 months old. The labrador has a tattoo in her ear which can't be read so is likely to have been bred in France, neither had collars or were chipped. I am desperately looking for homes for them as I already have 2 dogs and just can't manage 4! Both dogs are very well behaved and would make lovely pets. Please get in touch if you can help. Thanks, Lara

Does anyone know where the dogs home in either Figueres or Girona is, or of anyone knows of a puppy that needs a good home?  

started by: santnicolau-167317 · last update: 1359527904 · posted: 1359527904

Any suggestions about which local press/other websites might be useful to search for my two lost dogs?  Interested in anything that covers the Costa Brava area between Girona and Figueres.  Any language.  You can see my Anglo Info ad with photo in pets and Animals Adoptions and Rehoming. Thanks. Helen.

We have just moved to L'Escala with our 2 golden retrievers - Willow 4 years and Bee 11 months. We rent a house and my husband is away 2 weeks out of 4. I am looking for someone to look after the dogs if I have to go back to UK at short notice while he is away. Does anyone know of a reliable person who would look after them at our home? Or a kennels in a 20km radius of L'Escala? Would really appreciate some input from anyone... Thanks Jo

Can anyone tell me how easy it is to look after a terrapin. Do they need to be kept in warm water and what do they eat? A neighbour has offered me one, but I'm not sure I believe them when they say that you hardly need to do anything except change the water and make sure they can get out to breathe.
