Plenty of British Expat Animal Lovers are Impressed by Police Arresting Dog Owner in Spain’s Malaga Area for Abandoning His Pet

A typical Spanish Greyhound.

ANIMAL lovers in Spain’s Malaga area have applauded the police for arresting a dog owner over an alleged abandonment.

The 57-year-old man was collared by the Guardia Civil in Velez-Malaga after a female greyhound was found wandering the streets of Salobrena in Granada Province.

An animal charity, SOS Animales Salobrena, took in the ill-looking animal, and contacted the authorities who got the owner’s details off the dog’s obligatory microchip.

A visit to her old master by the Guardia, saw him claim that he had sold the dog six months earlier, but there was no record or any sale, or a report that it had gone missing.

As the law is clear that microchip details have to be changed if the dog is sold, the Guardia arrested the man on suspicion of abandoning the animal.

      Probably a hunter. They are well known to abandon their animals. The dog is better off now for sure. Hope he gets a serious fine!!
