I'm seeing some information tossed around that just contradicts everything I've come to know about Podengos.
They are working dogs first and independent working dogs at that. They run in packs therefore they are NOT relying on the handler very much.
While they are brilliant dogs , they are not easy dogs. The breed description lists them as having feral tendencys and thats so very true.
Outside of a pack they are known to have issues with strange dogs and people , they arent in your face friendly dogs unless they are extremely well socialised.
Both my pequeno and medio came with a lot of behavorial issues , however it should be noted I was not either of theirs first home.
I don't facebook myself, but I will try to search for podengo on it. I appreciate your input - that's what I'm here for!
