About me

I always knew I would end up in a
padded room one day,
I just never expected it to be made
out of Dog Beds.

In 2012 my wife and I were blessed to be rescued by a Galgo named Leena. This scared little white Galgo inspired my wife and I to start Love Hope Believe Galgo Adoption (www.adoptagalgo.com) in 2013. When our group was first starting out, we were lucky enough to have a member of Hearts Speak (www.HeartsSpeak.org) take photographs of our adoptable Galgos and give me several tips to take better photos of our adoptable dogs. Since then I have been working on my photography skills and taking photos of the Galgos during our trips to Spain. Now I have the opportunity to pay it forward. My wife and I have made five trips to Spain to volunteer at the shelters and have transported 60 Galgos back to the US for adoption. In December 2014 I published my first photo book "Galgo Espanol After The Hunt" (http://www.blurb.com/b/6708469-galgo-espanol-after-the-hunt) The money raised from the book is donated to Baas Galgo, the shelter we volunteered at in February 2015. I also have two more Photo Books in the works that will benefit Shelters in Spain that care for these beautiful animals.


A quote from his website:

“When animals express their feelings they pour out like water from a spout. Animals' emotions are raw, unfiltered, and uncontrolled. Their joy is the purest and most contagious of joys and their grief the deepest and most devastating. Their passions bring us to our knees in delight and sorrow.”~ Marc Bekoff
