The amazing creatures who share road with us! A wild dog?

Not wild but not a pet either – it is a Portuguese hunting dog.
She’s shy. Maybe she was looking for a new home. 🙂
Possibly food as when we came across her again at her place she had some puppies. Although having said that I always carry dog biscuits on me but couldn’t tempt her even when I left them for her to find
You are so kind to always carry dog biscuits. I should do that and I don’t. Here in Prescott all us old people have dogs, and on any day I will run into at least 10 dogs on my walk. Today a lady stopped her car (made me nervous), asked me to open the passenger door because her window wouldn’t roll down, and told me she had a dog who looked just like mind. Puppy Girl wanted to get into her car. The man in back of her at the round about wanted her to move on. Very strange encounter, speaking of dogs. 🙂
Oh my goodness what a strange encounter. Glad Puppy Girl didn’t get in!
Have to admit we partly carry the dog biscuits to distract them. Occasionally been followed by some very large dogs in hills, so we like to have an escape plan!!!
LOL. All of the dogs in the hills here have to be on a leash – big or little. I’ve seen some big dogs taking their owners on a walk!
Leashes are a rarely, if ever, seen in rural Portugal. And even in urban areas there are a significant number doing their own thing!
Hi Becky, We even put Puppy Girl on a leash in the country because we didn’t want her to run out in front of a car that might randomly barrel down our little road. At home we could keep her off the leash. She stayed in the yard and we were always outside with her. But I think leashes are a good thing if you want to keep your dog safe. 🙂
Long ears and legs! 🙂
All the better for hunting with!

Is she wild or domestic?
Somewhere in between I think as she’s a hunting dog.
Quite dingo like.
Very, their Portuguese name is Podengo
A walking companion?
She followed us for a short while, but didn’t get close.
… because she wanted to be your Monday Portrait. Result!.
Exactly – thought of you when I saw her as I know you like to be joined by virtual dogs!
Hey Becky. Do you know the breed?
No, but she is a hunting dog.
