not a destination, but we walked past it and stopped and read the signage. Worth a stop, not a drive.

Did you know about this breed of dog? Read the plaque next to the statue, follow up on some research and learn something new about the canon world

Very limited interest factor.

Yes it is an official recognition of the loyal (ie quite aggressive), Azores Dog in a municipal statue.
Very limited interest factor.
Move on - nothing to see here.

Nothing special

Statue of a dog, seen from the bus several times. Just an average statue, tho maybe the important part is to remind and inform people of this Sao Miguels own dog breed!

Statue of Sao Miguel Cattle Dog

Not worth going out of way for, but if you are in town and passing, worth a short stop to read the informative plaque. One for animal lovers

Just a dog statue

Nothing special about it, just a dog statue for dog lovers I guess. The park around it is nice for a walk.

What can I say? It's a statue of a dog!

So really, for dog-lovers and those staying at the Convent St. Francisco only as it's right-opposite it.

A statue pays tribute to San Miguel's rare & powerful breed of dog
Nov 2015 • Couples
The San Miguel cattle dog is so unique that it has its own statue, proudly displayed in the town of Vila Franco do Campo, the former Azorean capital. The statue is wonderful and captures the strength, intelligence and poise of this rare indigenous breed now internationally recognized as distinct. You will find the statue directly across the road from the old Convento de San Francisco (San Francisco Convent) on Avenida da Liberdade, right beside the relatively new Acor Arena. There is also a traffic circle at this location. We managed to photograph a few of these dogs while travelling on the back roads of San Miguel (attached).
