Breed: Portuguese Podengo

Bournemouth Portuguese Podengo

Its 5 years since I last judged this breed. There is still a mix of proportions. Coats in the Wires are not really correct, but this seems to be a problem generally with them in many countries. I thought a few had small ears rather than the more typical Podengo ear.
