Born in the USA Puppies

We are very concerned with health problems evidenced in Podengo Pequenos imported from Portugal. While Portugal has some fine breeders, most of whom are hunters and as such require hardy, healthy, sound dogs, other breeders are producing poorly bred/inbred lines and selling them off their internet sites. We strongly recommend great care in importing a Podengo. Similarly, there are breeders of small Podengos in the United States who are breeding to sell, not to show or to preserve the integrity of the breed.

To be safe, work with breeders who are members of the Portuguese Podengo Pequeno Club of America. We are the only Podengo Pequeno club that utilizes a breeder code of ethics and has a unique health database on the breed. Indeed, the small Podengos are hearty, healthy, happy little hounds and we do the best we can to produce wonderful puppies!

See our Breeder Referral List if you are interested in adding a puppy to your family.
