Mia - Adopted


Mia is a 7 month old Podengo type puppy that has been raised in a home and is very sweet and affectionate, house trained, good on a lead and very sociable with other dogs and people.

She was originally found wandering the streets of Portugal very thin and starving, around 4 to 5 weeks old and was taken to the private shelter run by our partners in the Algarve to rebuild her strength. She has been living in a home since.

She is now is a very fast, energetic and playful Podengo type pup, who is super smart! She's an adorable little girl with such a sweet temperament.

Information about Mia:

  • She was born on 06/08/2020
  • She is only 9.6kg and is almost fully grown
  • She is fully vaccinated and has been treated for fleas, ticks and worms.
  • She comes with her own passport.
  • She is house trained
  • She does have high prey drive and as such is not to be trusted off lead until recall is 100% and this may take several months
  • Please note that she cannot be rehomed in a house with a cat or any other small animal.


We would ideally like to rehome her with another dog as she is so sociable and absolutely LOVES to play!
