Meet Zuca

Zuca here!

If you want someone to cuddle up on the couch with you, I might just be the right dog for you. Although I like to play around, snuggling is a major priority. Oh, and I do like butt scratches. They are my favorite. Walking on a leash is second nature to me, and I take it very easy for my walks.
I tend to like to take some breaks and lay down for some belly rubs mid walk.

I’m a little bit older than some of the other dogs here, being 5.5 years old, and weighing 52lbs.
My life was forever changed when I was found abandoned in the woods in Portugal.
Thankfully Bring Portuguese Podengos to Light took me into their care.

I do take a bit of time before becoming comfortable with strangers though, and you would need to take it very slow with me to earn my trust and affection.
Please think about adding me to your family even though I am a bit shy, it’s nothing against you, it’s just what I’ve experienced in my life before being rescued.

Zuca would do best in a home with a low activity level.

* Fast Friends adopts in the New England area. If you are interested in Zuca or one of our other available dogs, please complete an adoption application at
