With a heavy heart I have to find a new home for my unusual looking wire coated four year old Portuguese Podengo Grande x Husky due to job promotion I can no longer dedicate the time for him as he is now alone a lot which is not fair to him.
He is a very loyal, affectionate, sensitive, submissive, intelligent, friendly, calm or as playful as you want him to be, gets on with other dogs after introduction but also will be happy as a companion dog, trained for the usual commands. He does not get on with cats or any feathery friends as he sees them as prey.
He is quite happy to be going for a short walk or a long run on the beach. He loves driving in the car. He is an indoor dog. He can be left for up to three hours by himself in the house or secured garden. He would suitable for an apartment, too as long as he gets two walks a day. He walks easy on the lead.
He can be easily trained for agility or even go surfing as he is motivated by food and fun. He is suited for an elderly person or a family with children. Around smaller children he can get excited however there were never any issues when he was around our grandchildren.
He is not a barker but will alert through whining that there is someone on the premises. He is fully house trained and will come to you and let you know when he needs to go out. He is castrated and microchipped. He blows his coat once a year but not much. I brush him once a week with a pin brush. His fur supposed to look rustic and does therefore not need any other care.
He comes with a yearly paid dog licence, one month dog insurance, fully vaccinated, halters, lead, collars, bed, bowl and one month dry dog food.
He is a fantastic dog and will make someone very happy as he is not only quirky looking but fun to be with.
Any homes will be vetted and I also would like to stay in touch with the new owner if possible.
