You may have noticed that Chata falls a little short of being a galgo (pun intended). She is a rather old beagle/pointer mix who was brought to Scooby by the people who had been using her for breeding when she had outlived her usefulness to them. And what a good thing that was! When she arrived at Scooby she had a pyometra (infected uterus) which required an emergency spay to save her life. Abby Christman met Chata during her February mission to Scooby. Her silly blanket loving, snorting and wiggling ways charmed Abby and she requested that Chata be allowed to come to the US in June.
Abby is currently fostering Chata. As you can see from the pictures, Chata is very fond of stuffies and blankies. She is a wonderful, charming old girl. # UPDATE! Chata has been officially adopted by Abby!
