So you’re looking to adopt an Portuguese Podengo Pequeno, or already have one?

According to the American Kennel Club, “The Pequeno is the smallest of Portugal’s three Podengo breeds, standing 8 to 12 inches at the shoulder and weighing no more than 13 pounds. A distinctive feature is the wedge-shaped head, with expressive almond-shaped eyes and erect, pointed ears. The long-backed body is muscular, the tail tapered and sickle-shaped, and the coat either short and dense or long and wiry. The overall look is that of a rustic, no-nonsense rabbit dog unspoiled by passing fashions. Classified as a hound, the alert and playful little Portuguese Podengo Pequeno is a quick, athletic rabbit hunter of ancient lineage. Pequenos love to run, romp, and chase when outdoors but make charming and well-mannered housemates.”

An Portuguese Podengo Pequeno typically ranges from 20.32cm to 30.48cm in height, and weighs from 4.082331330000001kg to 5.8967008100000005kg.
