Closeups - It's the Standard!
|Here we go -- nothing better than closeups of our fabulous little Podengos and how they fit the language of the Standard! (Standard is in italics). Also nothing more fun than taking closeups of Podengos! Please click on photo to expand.|
Here's Donzela's eye!
Almond-shaped eyes, slightly oblique, not round or prominent. Eye color ranges from honey to brown, in accordance with the coat. Eye rims are preferably black, but always darker than the coat.
A picture is worth a thousand words -- check out Amalia's attitude and nice front end!
Sound, well-muscled frame. Very lively and intelligent
Bucky has the right stuff!
Wire Coat, which is long, rough and harsh,
Grown-up Manny and Baby Ike and two fine heads!
Lean, pyramidal (like a broad-based wedge) when viewed from the top or in profile. A large base and a very sharp extremity.
Stop: Barely defined.
Nose: Tapered and obliquely truncated, prominent at the tip; which is preferably black, but always darker than the coat.
The tail should be sickle shaped. Check out Manny's!
Tail: Of medium length, set rather high. Strong and thick with a thin, fringed under side. In action, rises to the horizontal and is slightly arched or up to the vertical in a sickle shape.
Here are Bucky and Schwartz, two different looking Podengos, but each with good conformation and great toplines!
The top line, from ears to tail, is smooth and flowing.
Donzela do Porto Novo has great ears too!
Ears: Set obliquely and of medium length. Straight and mobile, held vertically or tilting slightly towards the front when attentive. Pointed, broader at the base, triangular and thin; longer than their width at the base.
Bucky's face is right on!
General Appearance: . . . sober and rustic
PigmentationPigmentation should be good and black, like Caia's.
Lips: Close fitting, thin, firm, even. Preferably black, but always darker than the coat.
