3 year old Male Podenco
Chiquito is a gorgeous 3 year old male Podenco, born on 12/08/2017.
Chiquito arrived at the shelter with his good friend Ron the Pointer. These two dogs belonged to the same hunter and whereas Ron is quite confident, Chiquito is initially quite fearful with people. He gains a lot of security from being with another dog.
Chiquito is in foster with an older female dog and has settled in well. He is active and playful. He will need a home with another dog, and an adopter with patience and time.
Podencos are gorgeous, intelligent, active working dogs often with a high prey drive like all the SeBPRA dogs. They have been bred with a combination of speed and agility with endless endurance for trotting rather than galloping. They are agile to the point they have been known to climb trees in pursuit of prey and can even jump great heights from a stand. Smart, curious and clownish, they have a profound awareness of their surroundings and a sensitivity to their humans. Podencos reward their human companions with great loyalty, love, affection and are wonderful family members if the adopter is ready to devote time and energy to their Podenco. They are alert barkers so they are great home protection. Podencos are a great option for those wanting to take up canicross or agility. Please do read up on this breed before applying if you do not already know them.
