Welcome to Podengo Place.

Although still a rare breed of dog in this country, Portuguese Podengos are rapidly becoming more popular. Once you meet one, you'll understand why. Podengo Place was started to be an resource for people who want to learn more about this rare breed of dog.

Portuguese Podengos come in 3 sizes and 2 coat types. The sizes are Portuguese Podengo Pequeno (small), Portuguese Podengo Medio (medium), and Portuguese Podengo Grande (large). Their coats can be wire or smooth. At this time, the majority of Podengos in the U.S. are wire-hair Portuguese Podengo Pequeno, but other varieties of the breed, especially the smooth Pequeno and wire-hair Medios are gaining popularity as well.

Portuguese Podengo Pequeno and Portuguese Podengo Medio and Grande have been listed with the American Kennel Club Foundation Stock Service since 2007. Portuguese Podengos have already won titles in numerous performance events including Tracking, Rally and Agility.

Portuguese Podengo Pequeno will be eligible to compete in AKC dog shows in the Miscellaneous class starting in January, 2011. Portuguese Podengos (all dog sizes) are also eligible to be shown at United Kennel Club shows in both conformation and performance; and at rare breed dog shows put on by the American Rare Breed Association (ARBA) and the North American Kennel Club (NAKC).Here at Podengo Place you'll find Podengo owners and breeders, Podengo news, brags and any current Podengo happenings.
