Portuguese Podengo Dog Breed Puppy Ads
AKA: Portuguese Hound, Portuguese Podengo Pequeno - Portuguese Podengo Medio - Portuguese Podengo Grande
Breed Group: Hound Group Height Male: 8-27 inches (20-70 cm.)
Breed Size: Medium Height Female: 8-27 inches (20-70 cm.)
Breed Origin: Portugal Weight: 9-66 pounds (4-30 kg.)
There are three sizes of Podengo Portugueso: Grande (large), Medio (medium) and Pequeno (small). The Podengo is known for its erect ears, pyramidal head, elegant lines of body and agile movement. The head is wedge-shaped, with prick ears. Sickle shaped tail. The body has no exaggerations in any of its proportions. Sound, well-muscled frame.

Very lively and intelligent, independent and rustic. The Pequeno are natural rabbit hunters, either alone or in small packs, seeking out rabbits among rocks and thick scrub. All varieties are also used as watch dogs and companions. Aggression or overly shy behavior is an eliminating fault.

The Podengo is a hardy, intelligent and lively breed, making fine companions. Loyal and fearless, the Podengo is also a good watchdog.

An ancient hunting breed, the origins of the Podengo trace back thousands of years. Coming to the Iberian Peninsula with the Phoenicians from the area of Asia Minor in over 2,000 years ago, it is first seen in on mosaics and medallions found in the Roman ruins in Conimbriga, Portugal. Its history, through the centuries, is deeply interwoven with the history of the country and its people.
The Podengo is healthy and hardy and lives into its late teens.
