From time to time, we hear about Portuguese Podengos who, for whatever reason, need re-homing or whose owners simply need advice on how to care for their dog. For this reason, we offer a confidential, "no blame, no shame" rescue service. The aim is to offer help and advice to any owner experiencing difficulties with their podengo or who might simply require advice about the breed.

If you need to talk to the Association about any welfare issues or wish to discuss re-homing a young or older Podengo for any reason, please do not hesitate to contact us via the confidential contact form below; it goes direct to the NPPA Rescue Coordinator. We stress again that this is a confidential, "no blame, no shame" service.

Also, we're always pleased to hear from suitable homes that may be interested in adopting a Podengo, should the need arise.
