The life of the galgo is grim at best. These beautiful dogs suffer needlessly at the hands of their keepers and are often killed in gruesome, inhumane ways. These abuses have been well documented but are far too horrific to share on this website. The following webpages detail the horrific conditions these dogs are kept in and the cruel methods used to kill them. These sites may contain very disturbing images on some of their pages so we recommend proceeding with caution. Most will give a warning.
