Marilyn with Manny (aka Chicharro), the first fully pedigreed little wire coat Podengo in the USA!
We love our Podengos and want what is best for them and for the breed. We are committed to following the standard and respecting the character of this historic breed. Our Podengos are alert, intelligent, healthy and active. We analyze all potential pairings with a keen and experienced eye towards temperament and type. We are committed to a continuous path of education as we learn more about the Podengo to best promote and protect it in the USA. Meet our partners in the Podengo Network and join us in our journey as we develop the best little Podengos in America!

Our principles

  • Breed to the Standard
  • Breed Healthy - Support the PPPCA Code of Ethics!
  • Understand Canine Genetics
  • Work as a Team


  • Practice

    We have extensive knowledge of the Podengo Pequeno, derived from both hands-on learning from many trips to Portugal as well as from immersion in the history of the breed. Porto Novo Podengos works closely with Portugal to ensure that we do things correctly and adhere to the principles of those who have worked so diligently to develop and protect this great historic breed of the world. When deciding on homes for our puppies, we give preference to members of the Portuguese Podengo Pequeno Club of America. You can join PPPCA at www.podengos.com either online or via a mail-in application.

    What we Look for in a Podengo Pequeno

    Quick intelligence, great movement, wonderful personality, black noses, good coat, correct conformation, type, and great big smiles!
