Pet of the Week Peaches Taunton Portuguese Podengo Dog Adoption

The pet of the week is Peaches, a Portuguese Podengo female of about 3 years old.

If you are interested in adopting Peaches, the Taunton Animal Shelter recommends knowledge of the breed and a home with a fenced yard where she can run and play to her heart’s content.

She likes to walk – the use of a martingale and an easy walking harness is helpful.

After some time getting to know you, Peaches seems to like everyone she meets.

Although she comes from a household with another female Podengo, she doesn’t seem to like most other dogs. There will be break-ins, because Peaches is not used to living in a house. She will need someone with lots of time, patience, love and understanding.

As Peaches is somewhat shy, the shelter does not recommend young children either, as they would be too active for Peaches. Once comfortable with you, Peaches loves snuggling up, giving her dog kisses and getting a tummy massage. She is a very sweet girl who will bring lots of love and companionship to your life. She is also a bundle of energy from head to toe and needs an active person/family. The shelter recommends a home without cats.
