Looking for a Breeder of Portuguese Podengo Pequenos Because:

by Debbie Appelman
(Sacramento, CA)

An adorable dog comes to hang out with us regularly because he likes to visit with our dogs. He's extremely intelligent but an escape artist. He comes to us, then we always need to return him to his owner. Would love to locate a breeder for this breed in California. Know anyone? debbie_appelman@yahoo.com

Re a "wierd" Podengo
by: Sandy

It could be that he is not pure bred.

It could also be that he hasn't had the advantages of loving owners willing to work and train him. Podengos are definitely a high energy dog, if the owners haven't respected this, the dog would be forced to create his own "amusements".

Never a good idea!

Thanks for your submission. Have you asked the Pequeno's owner when he or she got her dog?

Other than that I would start with the Portuguese Podengo Pequeno Club of America. They have a very nice website -- I have a link on the Pequeno page.

Good luck with your search -- let us know if you find a good breeder.
