Rita is a beautiful 7 year old female Ibizan Hound (Podenco). She is such a lovable dog! She adores people. She melts from a touch and will seek to be with people at every opportunity. At first she approaches shyly but it doesn’t take her long to gain confidence when you stroke her sweet face.
Rita is kennelled with two other female dogs and she can be a bit pushy with them. She loves playing with them in the enclosure, but when they return to the kennel if she enters first then she is inclined to growl at them. The two dogs are very submissive and there has never been any issue between the three dogs but she would prefer a home with submissive dogs or as an only dog.
Rita has a problem with her back leg. We believe it is an old injury. We don’t think it is causing her much or any pain as she seems totally happy and runs and plays without any problem however we have asked a traumatologist to review it as soon as possible.
Podenco’s are gorgeous, intelligent, active working dogs often with a high prey drive like all the SeBPRA dogs. They have been bred with a combination of speed and agility with endless endurance for trotting rather than galloping. They are very agile and can even jump great heights from a stand. Smart, curious and clownish, they have a profound awareness of their surroundings and a sensitivity to their humans. Podenco’s reward their human companions with great loyalty, love, affection and are wonderful family members.
Rita is currently in North Spain but she is ready to travel to her forever home in the UK now.
If you are interested in our lovely Rita, she is available at Setter Brittany Pointer Rescue.
