Introduction

The Portuguese Podengo is considered the national breed of its native country, Portugal. This honor is well worth it because of the breed’s interesting qualities. The Podengo has been in existence way before written dog breeding records were available, thus the reason why its ancestry remains vague. Records show that the Podengo has been around at least some 2000 years ago and was originally bred to be used as hunting dogs. It is an extremely rare breed with an affinity for game. While hunting runs in its blood, the Podengo has a silly side and an eagerness to make people happy. The Podengo is a clever, energetic dog with a loving personality. With constant training and enough socialization and exercise, the Portuguese Podengo can become a great companion and watch dog.

Portuguese Podengo Dog Name Considerations

Portuguese Podengos are not your typical dog breed and can be quite hard to get; owning one is a kind of privilege in itself. Hence, it would be a dishonor to not give your new pup an equally rare name. A simple but ingenious way to name your dog is to choose a name or word that relates to your dog’s physical attributes. For one, you can pick a name related to the dog’s size. Podengos come in three various sizes – Grande (large), Medio (medium) and Pequeno (small). Therefore, the name you give your dog can be dependent on which size your dog is. The dog’s coat color can also help you brainstorm for a name. Podengos comes in various colors such as black, fawn and gold, to name a few.

The breed’s country of origin can also serve as a great inspiration for a name. The Portuguese Podengo hails from Portugal, which means a Portuguese name would be an awesome fit for the dog. You can pick out a meaningful Portuguese name that directly relates to your dog’s look or personality. Another tip would be to choose a famous name from Portuguese culture. This could include celebrities, artists, literary heroes, words or anything related to the country’s culture.
