Zeus's Story...
Hi everyone meet Zeus, He is approximately 8 years old.and older dogs are the best too.. . He is a small medium size male Portuguese hound also known as podengo. The breed originated from Portugal and use them for luring and hunting. Therefore he needs a good healthy run everyday, not too excessive because of his age. Nature walks is his favored thing to do because he can explore and mark every tree nearby.He eats solid food and loves treats. Gets along with cats, as long as he is put in his place by them (not aggressive) . He walks good on the leash, he gets too excited with other dogs around on the leash. If he can run without leash, he is very friendly. Likes kids who plays with them and tolerates small children as well.(he will walk away when a child is getting rough with him.) He likes to jump the fence that is twice as high as his size, we found that out in a hard way:-) Know how to lie down, give paw for a treat. His breed is extremely affectionate. He would follow us everywhere.
Skittish around cars that are close to the sidewalk and loud noises. Terrified of sounds of lightning and what comes after. Does not like the sound of a rain. He is terrified to the point where he shakes and drools and will not leave my side. He will be fixed and shots up date ..adoption fee is 150.00

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Zeus, a zephyr 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 zephyr, or seeking a Podengo Portugueso dog from a breeder in zephyr.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in zephyr 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 zephyr 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 zephyr paves the way for another one to be saved.
