Looks tend to vary somewhat because in the past the Andalusian Podenco was bred for its hunting skills rather than its looks. Today there are several varieties—small, medium and large and coat types—longhaired, wirehaired and shorthaired. Coat colors include cinnamon and white, shades of white and shades of cinnamon.
