China is a 4 year old male Podenco. He is medium (approx 50 cm) in size, red/brown with a little flash of white on his chest. China is a shy and gentle boy. The top third of his right ear is missing. He gets on very well with other dogs and with cats. He walks extremely well on the lead, and has a lovely elegant little gait with a natural bounce in his step. When he fully comes out of his shell I’m convinced he’ll be a very playful boy with the typical clown-like podenco characteristics.
He loves to have strokes and tummy rubs but needs time and love as he has spent all his life in a shelter so he can be a little hesitant at coming forward and is easily spooked sometimes, however he has a real resilience and inquisitiveness which can be seen in his beautiful amber eyes. He has been in the UK for 3 months and is now used to a home environment (very clean and housetrained). His former weekend walker, Caroline, in Spain describes him as “ … a very special dog. He has a lot of feeling and is very gentle.”
He is currently based in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex. He is neutered, microchipped. All vaccinations up-to-date including rabies and has a Pet Passport.
