    The Podenco Canario, or Canarian Warren Hound, is a medium-size (20 to 25 inches at the shoulder) sighthound with keen nose and hearing. This breed is similar to better known the Ibizan Hound and Pharaoh Hound. Muscular, slender and hardy, the Podenco Canario is well adjusted to working in the hot summer conditions and can run all day long.


    The Podenco is found on all of the Canary Islands. Being a typical high-key hunting dog, the Podenco is used in packs to point and retrieve game, but primarily hunts rabbits.

    His short coat comes in a combination of white and red (from orange to mahogany).
