       The breeding of wire-hair Portuguese Podengo Pequenos is an interesting art and science.
      This type and variety of Portuguese Podengo was almost extinct in the 1960's in Portugal, and only with
      the hard work of several very serious breeders was it brought back to the PPPWH of today.  Trying to 
      obtain the correct wire coat in addition to the correct conformation along with all of the other points that   
      our Standard calls for is not an easy task and requires a great deal of thought, observation, study, and
      luck !!
      This type and variety of PP hunts rabbits and that ability, too, must enter into the equation, although we do
      not have that many hunters using this breed for this purpose in the USA yet.  Remember, with the  
      exception of a few PP Hollywood "movie stars", the PP breed did not really start being imported into the
      USA until shortly after the new millennium began.   With the help of some excellent Portuguese breeders,
      we've had some very nice foundation stock come to America to help us all build the strong foundation
      for this rare breed in our country.

 
  LITTERS:  We usually breed only one or two litters a year at Podengos da Floresta Kennels.  We believe
       in quality rather than quantity and we put a great deal of time into socializing and early training of
       our puppies, be they show or pet quality.  We want them to ease into their new homes smoothly
       and with good habits starting to form.  We start crate training, lead training, and house breaking
       before our puppies leave us at 10 weeks of age (in the US - older if going abroad). They will have
       had their first vaccine, been wormed if needed, and have had a thorough physical exam - including
       palpation of their knees.  Our puppies are "family raised" in the house; they are not raised or run
       in kennels.  When they are old enough, they are put in the fenced-in dog yard for lots of play during
       the day with us in attendance. When they are about 6 weeks old, we begin walking them in the woods,
       also, if it is not midwinter.
