PORTUGUESE WATER DOG



The Portuguese fisherman prized this seafaring breed for their spirited yet obedient nature. A robust dog of medium build, the Portuguese Water Dog can complete a full day's work in or out of the water. He is a loyal companion and an alert guard. Two coat types, either curly or wavy, and two clips, either retriever or lion clip, distinguish this highly intelligent, utilitarian breed. With an impressive head, rugged well-knit body, and a powerful tail, the Portuguese Water Dog provides the impression of a strong, spirited working dog.
