Almost 500 Portuguese Podengo Pequenos have been born in the United States. Another 175 have been imported here from Portugal, England, Germany, France, Sweden and Finland. We now have more US-bred Podengo Pequenos than imports. Way to go!
We love our home-grown puppies! They are well socialized, healthy and happy. PPCA breeders are diligent at outcrossing the best foundation stock to produce the healthiest puppies.
Be sure to contact a Portuguese Podengo Club of America (PPCA) breeder listed below or on our links pages when looking for a puppy - PPCA breeders perform basic health tests and sign a Code of Ethics regarding certain breeding practices. They are contributing to maintaining the good health of the Breed.
