This photos were taken in January 2012, during the first hours of his brand new life.

He was my inspiration and main motivation for creating Hounding Misery, a piece about the shameful situation of greyhounds in Spain. Fortunately, he is now a happy, healthy and beautiful being, although he still suffers from sporadical episodes of fear, whenever an unknown human being enters his delicate vital space.

You won´t regret it.
