The activity of hunting with podengos involves mass breeding, the selection of " best " individuals for that activity and the very abundant discarding of all dogs that do not " give the size " required by their owners. Descartes that carry their abandonment, they are deposited in perreras where they will be sacrificed if no one claims them, their sacrifice by unscrupulous veterinarians without scruples or ethics, or directly they are abused and killed by the same owners, in many terribly cruel ways.
No one comes to this world to be used to hunt and be discarded after, like a useless tool...
No one comes into this world to live a life of misery, chained, with barely food or water, in the weather or between excrement...
Dogs used for hunting are also dogs and deserve the same protection and rights as "companion" dogs. In fact, the podengo is proving to be as good a companion as the other breeds. More and more and more people are leaving behind the fake Myth that "they do not make companion animals", and opening their doors and their hearts to these wonderful dogs, with excellent results, totally satisfied with their decision.
Not to hunt with podengo! Not the hunting with dogs! Not on the hunt! No to abuse or animal abandonment!
