Portuguese Water Dog Breed

The Definitive Guide To Portuguese Water Dogs

This web-footed water baby was bred to assist sailors and fishermen in Portugal by retrieving lost gear and crewmen from the waves, as well as “herding” fish into the nets. One suspects that the whimsical activity contributed to the fun loving, highly intelligent, and people-loving traits of this breed. What matters most for them is activity and companionship—meet those needs and they’ll live anywhere.
