The Portuguese Podengo Club of America

Mission Statement

MISSION STATEMENT The purpose of the Portuguese Podengo Club of America (PPCA) is to encourage and promote quality in the breeding of purebred Portuguese Podengos in accordance with the PPCA translation of the Federation Cynologique International breed standard as approved by the United Kennel Club, and to support the development of local Portuguese Podengo Specialty clubs in America in those areas where there are sufficient fanciers of the breed. The Portuguese Podengo Club of America will do all in its power to protect and advance the interests of the breed and to encourage sportsman-like competition at dog shows. Furthermore, the PPCA will promote the qualities of the breed to the members and general public through communications, publications, educational seminars, and other positive approaches. PPCA brings together Portuguese Podengo aficionados who share the pursuits of raising, training, breeding, hunting, and competing and are committed to stimulating interest in competitive public showings of Portuguese Podengos and developing and protecting the Breed.
