About Podengo Friends

Friendship, joy and cooperation


Welcome to the website of Podengo Friends Sweden!


Podengo Friends Sweden is a private Facebookgoup for us who have a Podengo Portuguese, are thinking about getting one, and want to learn more about the breed.

The group was started with the aim of spreading friendship, joy and cooperation between us who love this breed. This we want to achieve through a humble attitude in the Facebookgroup, as well through the podengo walks and other activities that are arranged. We also hope to be able to give some tips, advices and information about the breed. Although we ourselves are “just ordinary” dog owners, there are a lot of knowledge among the breeders and others who are members of the group.

Members of the Facebookgroup Podengo Friends Sweden are warmly welcome to post, share pictures, stories, ask questions, give tips, etc. about the breed. You who make a request about joining the group must answer some questions before deciding on admission, because we want to protect the group page and its members from SPAM, advertising etc.

When admission is granted, we want you to start by reading the description and policy below for the group.

We have opened this page to us with this breed, and our ambition and purpose is to spread friendship, joy and cooperation among us. We have a humble, friendly and supportive attitude and do not accept posts or comments that are patronizing, masterful, sarcastic or similar, we reserve the right to remove such directly. We also reserve the right to welcome, or exclude, members after a dialogue and assessment based on the group’s purpose.
We welcome photos and posts from both breeders and us “ordinary” podengo owners, and have no prohibition of showing puppy litters or avertise after a new home for a dog, on our Facebook or website.

Podengo Friends Sweden is a closed group because those who are in the group should feel confident in sharing their photos, “ventilate”, ask for help, ask for advice and so on, without this being spread outside the group. Therefore it is NOT allowed to share / copy / distribute posts, photos and comments outside the group without the approval of the admin and / or persons concerned.

We are a private and independent group with good relationship with The Swedish Podengo Portuguese Club, which we have had a long-standing close cooperation with. Nowadays, Podengo Friends Sweden operates via its own Facebook and website.

Companies who want to advertise on the site must contact admin for approval. However, it is ok for the group’s members to give tips about dog shops, dog / owner courses, dog activities and so on.

I, Bert-Åke, administrate Podengo Friends Sweden, and started the group together with my wife Gunela some years ago. We have a wire haired Podengo Portuguese, Tizzel Ebbe Easter Cauldron, “Billy”. Since Billy came to us 2014, we have been involved in so many wonderful meetings with new two-legged and four-footed friends. The warmth and the community from these meetings we would like to share with others who love this breed. Through Podengo Friends Sweden we hope to do this together with our podengo friends in the group.
