Manny's Info...

I am already neutered, purebred, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Manny's Story...
Here's a breed I never saw before, a Portuguese Podengo! I had no idea what that was but when I looked it up, sure enough....that's our Manny. This poor guy had a very tough life up until now. He was seized from the owners after a video was taken of the 10 year old whipping him in the driveway. He came into the shelter covered in black & blue bruises. The court case took several months, giving Manny time to heal his body. He's now here with me in foster care taking the time to heal his mind. And he is doing surprisingly well. He is very affectionate and he listens well. Considering the years of abuse he withstood, I didn't think he would come around so fast. He likes to sleep cuddled up next to me at night. I think he finally feels safe.

Manny is now completely vetted. He came in doing a lot of marking his territory but now that he is neutered that has diminished. He has his shots and had full blood work, he is also microchipped. He is good with most dogs but a meet & greet would need to be done if there is a resident dog in the house. I was told that cats are definitely out. This guy deserves to be pampered and spoiled for the rest of his days. Please do not consider Manny unless you plan on treating him like a king!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Manny, a Linden Podengo Portugueso dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Podengo Portugueso for sale in Linden, or seeking a Podengo Portugueso dog from a breeder in Linden.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Linden already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Linden breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Podengo Portugueso breeders who help with Podengo Portugueso rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Linden paves the way for another one to be saved.
