cachorro ou cadela?
I'd like to know the difference between the two words since they both refer to dogs. Muito obrigado :)
Cachorro is a male dog, while cachorra is a female dog.
Cão is a male dog, while cadela is a female dog.
All these variants are used in Portuguese.
If you say "Cadela", you are reffering to a female dog, if you say "Cachorro", you are reffering to a male dog Sometimes you will listen to people saying "Cachorra" to reffer to a female dog, but it's not grammatically correct
However, you need to be aware of what you are exactly trying to express, because if you accidentaly call a woman a "Cachorra" or "Cadela", you are basically calling her a whore
It's almost like indonesian, if you call someone "Anjing" (Dog), it is the worst way to curse to someone
Sorry, but "cachorra" is grammatically correct.
