Portuguese Podengo Dog Breed

The Definitive Guide To Portuguese Podengo Dogs

Incredibly active, joyful, and loving, the Podengo is among the oldest of breeds—they share a common past and many features with the Pharaoh Hound and the Cirneco. While they still possess a strong hunting urge, their pack sensibility makes them ideal family pets. They get along well with other animals, too, but early, consistent training is a must to curb their inclination to give chase.
