Fred

After the sad passing of our gorgeous pooch Gizmo in December, we have now decided to adopt another rescue dog. I’m sure Gizmo would approve of giving an abandoned dog a second chance. Fred is a mixed mutt, part Yorkshire terrier and part spaniel, he is 2 years old and has huge amount of energy. We still miss Gizmo a lot but Fred has helped to bring us some joy.

Gizmo made his last journey

RIP our gorgeous rescue dog Gizmo, you made your final journey 8/12/22. He was about 12 years old.

This is how I will remember Gizmo running on the beach.

Our beloved pooch was spokesmutt for Action-del- sol for 9 years, the inspiration for three books and a social media celebrity on Twitter helping to promote the plight of abandoned dogs.

Thank you veterinarians Miguel, Jacinto and Roberto, for taking such good care of him throughout his life and saving his life on numerous occasions! Gizmo had a thing about swallowing stuff he shouldn’t!

We are both heartbroken to lose our precious Gizmo.

Here´s a quote that dog owners know too well…..
