El Podenco is the typical dog we usually see from the highway wandering around the field, which is confused with a galgo. The one who lives locked in a junction for years, the one who belongs to a rehala.
That hound dog no one wants.
Podenco means light feet.
Its stylized figure, its agility on any ground, its incomparable tracker, its visual and audible sharpness, its ability to adapt to any temperature. All of this has made from the podenco an essential "tool" for hunters.
The podenco has always been used for hunting, throughout its history.
But let us talk about the other side, not the one we are used to seeing, but the other, the good one.
The Podenco is a loyal, faithful animal, who will give all its being for its owner, whether for good or for bad. If he is lost or abandoned he will stay on the site for months waiting for his hunter, until someone sees him and rescues him.
Something incredibly incomparable is her look, a look so tender, so clean, so sad, so expressive, so penetrating, that if her eyes cross yours for a few seconds, you'll be attracted to them forever.
The Podenco has an amazing character, it can live with any kind of animal, plus it's fantastic with children and the elderly.
It's a strong and long-lasting breed, they rarely fall sick.
It can live perfectly in a flat, it will just need a good bed and a good couch, it's something that drives them crazy. But he needs exercise, walk, run (always in closed and safe places). If he gets out enough, when he gets home, he'll lay apart on the couch as long as he is and spend hours in a "let me sleep" position, plus they have the ability to "fold up" to take up less space. This is incredible! They make a stool like they want to disappear to be calm.
How much courage it gives to animals as extraordinary as they are, to be exploited, mistreated, maimed, killed...
They are the big forgotten, completely invisible at the time of adoption, no one stares at them, the protectors and dog kennels are full of them, in the doggies they are the first to fall, because they know they won't come out. In the protectors days, months and years pass, they come in and out to other companions and they are still there, between bars, surely for life. How exceptional beings have such a hard life.
Don't you think they deserve a chance to be happy?? To know the warmth of a home?? Don't they deserve to be treated right by someone for the first time in their life?? Don't they deserve someone to defend them??.
They have a great skill and is that if you adopt one, it is easy to fall in love so much, that you end up with two or more or trying to help others who are on the street, or helpless, you take them so much, but so much love, that even if time passes and have another 5 dogs, between whatever you have, you'll always have a podenco.
Give yourself a chance to meet them. The podenco is a house dog, a sofa and a family to love.
