K9 animal news
PODENCOS are a breed of Canarian hunting dog which often come in to the kennels. Because hunting is still permitted on the island, thousands of them are still as working hunting dogs.
Inevitably, they often go missing, and end up as strays which breed continuously, or are collected and delivered to local shelters, such as K9.
They make remarkable pets, and, although they are notorious for their energy and  nervous attitude, they are very loyal and gentle, and cherish their owners.
Because of their nervy behaviour, if they are not socialised they can develop phobias. Many of them are apprehensive around strangers, which can make them difficult to home. However, like Marco, most of them are abolutely fine, and are waiting for someone to give them the opportunity they deserve. Why not come and meet him?
We encourage you to adopt a podenco, if you have the chance. They make amazing pets, and deserve great homes!

Cheap Flights to St.Petersburg, Russia

St. Petersburg is the place miracles are made. Today, Russia’s second largest city is known for its stunning tsarist architecture, fashionable restaurants, shopping and electric nightlife, all set along the beautiful Neva River. But St. Petersburg is also the site of some of the most pivotal moments in Russia's history, most notably the Siege of Leningrad.

One of the most awesome spectacles you can see once you've stepped off a flight to St. Petersburg are the “white nights” that occur in the city in the summer. Find cheap flights to St. Petersburg in June and July and watch in awe as the city glows from the prolonged twilight. The sun never drops far enough below the horizon to create the usual nighttime darkness, so the city is constantly lit up under the miraculous white light.
