    Possible Podengo?

    Post  JJinTX on Wed May 09, 2012 8:47 am

    We are fostering this cute little girl. She was listed as a Chi/Basenji mix. I belong on a basenji forum and with their help we thought she looked like a possible corgi/basenji mix. After doing a little research, I came upon the PPP's and saw a resemblance to basenjis and then to my surprise our little foster girl. The only characteristics she shares with the basenji are her yodels, if she is not barking and her self-grooming. Pictures of her are in a flickr account, but since I can't post external links being a new member, there are pictures posted at the basenji forums. just do a search for my posts under the member name jjuds.

    This looks to me like a Podengo Pequeno. The long pointed ears , white stripe on the forehead white socks and curly tail with its white tip are classic marks. Bear in mind that the Podengo is a a very loose breed, having mostly interbred in the open in their native Portugal. It is likely that other strains of dog became mixed with the Podengos, which the Romans brought to Portugal from the Lebanon.

    They display great affection, enormous resilience and are very inquisitive - no doubt traits shared with many other terrier types which were bred often in England for the same role of diving down rabbit burrows for their master`s supper.

    Not too many people can readily identify Podengos as they do vary considerably more than say a Jack Russell. That maybe why you did not get a more prompt response.
