Teensy Posted February 16, 2016 Share Posted February 16, 2016 For the last year or so I have had my eye on a newish podenco rescue. They were in California when I first discovered them, but have now moved to Oregon, about two hours away from me. I have been thinking about getting involved with this rescue for a while, but since Irene died, I have been positively obsessed. I definitely want to help the founder get established in her new region and help with outreach and fundraising in Oregon. What I can't decide is if a podenco is right for my household. Greytalk, what do you say? How would you compare life with a greyhound to life with a podenco? I am concerned mostly with energy level. I live in the city, and have a smallish yard with a very high fence. I cannot think of a fenced dog park with a high enough fence, but maybe there is one. Although I never would have run her in an unenclosed area, Irene was not a flight risk in dog parks. She only cared about visiting the other dog owners and eating crab grass. What other differences are big enough to warrant consideration? I would take another greyhound in a heartbeat, but I am also taken with the plight (and the giant ears) of the podencos. Apologies if this is in the wrong category. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
