Portuguese Podengo

Average: 3 (2 votes)

The breed is best known in Portugal as a rabbit hunting dog that comes in three sizes, Grande (large), Medio (medium), and Pequeno (small). The intelligent and lively Portuguese Podengo can vary in size, the Grande stands 22 to 27 inches and weighs 44 to 66 pounds, the Medio stands 15 to 22 inches and weighs 35 to 44 pounds, and the Pequeno stands 8 to 12 inches and weighs 9 to 13 pounds. Regardless of the size, the Portuguese Podengo makes a great family companion and a super efficient hunter. The breed needs a sufficiently large amount of exercise, so apartment life is not suitable, also the breed does best in hot, sunny climates where they can live outdoors, with shelter though.
