Resumen

GONZALEZ, A et al. Use of Morphometric Variables for Differentiating Spanish Hound Breeds. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2011, vol.29, n.4, pp.1248-1255. ISSN 0717-9502.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95022011000400030.

The term Podencos refers to a group of dog breeds from Spain and classification in Group 5 of dog breeds by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI). The aim of this study was to compare traits morphometric breeds of Podencos; Canario, Ibecenco, Andaluz (small, medium and large) and Orito. Ten morphometric variables were measured in 385 animals (245 females and 140 males), head length, muzzle length, height at withers, rump height, body length, head width, rump width, chest depth, chest girth and the shin circumference. Morphostructural variables were more homogeneous in the Podenco Ibicenco and the Podengo Canario, because for many years there were gradually distinctive trait standards for each breed. The discriminate analysis indicated morphostructural differences between all breeds, as reflected in the significant Mahalanobis distance, and confirmed that the hound Orito may be accepted as a different dog population.
