Freita Lobo Ibérico

our goddaughter

A Ponta da Pinta sponsored lovely 7-year-old Freita, one of the resident wolves of the Iberian Wolf Recovery Center, in Portugal. This way, we support the Grupo Lobo association, whose mission is the conservation of this magnificent species, to which the Estrela Mountain Dog owes its existence as a livestock guardian dog.
