The Podengo is the national dog of Portugal and is considered a real treasure. There are three sizes of these attractive, intelligent dogs, namely small, medium and large. However, only the small Podengo is recognised as a breed by the Kennel Club. Originally bred to control vermin, hunt and protect its home, the Podengo is also a wonderful family pet that is especially good with children.
