    May have rescued a Podengo

    Post  Hedgy on Sun Feb 23, 2014 10:14 am

    Hello,

    We rescued a dog last week for our dog who lost her buddy a month ago. Just fell in love with him, Fritz as did Ollie our dog. We are now wondering if we may have a Podengo medium. He is 40lbs. Having a hard time up loading images, help wanted...lol. As you can see by my profile picture the only difference, I as a novice see is that his ears are droopy. Any comments would be wellcomed. We are in Raleigh , NC. Needless to say he chases suizzles and stands looking upwards, barks a lot and digs. Off to find a training class and maybe on to agility. We think he is about 15 months.
    Great to find this site with so many loving Podengo people, even if he isn't, he has our hearts.

    Yup posting pictures is not for the faint of heart - if you look at the tool bar you will see several icons to the left of the YouTube Icon. Those are involved in downloading the photos - I'll have to check and make sure I tell you the right sequence but it always has been a 2 or 3 step process. To find out more about the Podengo you can also visit us on the internet at: www.podengo-mediogrande.com and on facebook.

    There are less than 200 registered Podengos (medio and grande together) in the US. There were however some dogs imported years ago that have been bred and mixed with other breeds that from time to time produce something more podengoish. If you look at Primitive dogs in general you will see that eventually - dogs default to the primitive look. Your dog appears to come from the part of the country where there have been some others in shelters BUT the shelters move dogs around from state to state so it's hard to know where the source may be.

    Thanks for posting.
