Welcome to Our Website
We are so blessed to have these wonderful dogs and pups in our lives and would love to share the joy of PWD ownership with you. Feel free to peruse our links to the right, to gain valuable information about us and our dogs, transitioning a new pup in to your home, diet, testing, spay/neuter, and how we whelp and raise our puppies to ensure you have the best possible dog ownership experience. I keep a blog while we raise each of our litters, and we generally have a summer and a winter litter.
Information on puppies will be updated as is available and posted on the right, with individual descriptions and pictures of each pup. I also post the genetics for our dogs as well as their parents. We give a three year health guarantee on all of our puppies, and take great pride in the health of our puppies and our line.
Below are India and Morocco. Our first generation of fine PWD's.
We have had the privilege of owning PWD's for 16 years, after having raised and trained golden retrievers for a service dog program.
Our PWD family began with Morocco, India and Kenya. Morocco and India are pictured above and are now retired. They gave us years of joy and three beautiful offspring: Jamaica, Asia, and Java. We are blessed to have had such a wonderful line, and such great additions to our family. They came from a long line of champions and have been show dogs. We enjoy showing and training our PWD's, but we are not full time enthusiasts/breeders. We have other careers and are "hobby" breeders. It is an enjoyable family activity to attend shows and periodically raise a high quality litter of very fine Portuguese Water Dogs.
All of our dogs have wonderful personalities, are extremely healthy and have not been to the vet other than immunizations and the required and optional health testing.
All puppies are sold with a pet contract only (spay/neuter-limited AKC registration-no exceptions), written health guarantees, first set of shots and worming, microchip if you desire, along with a puppy packet and a flash drive of pictures since birth.
Jamaica, my daughters brown and white pup is now 5 1/2. She has been trained for the ring and is a great family member and has completed all of her health testing.
Captain Jack joined our family in 2011. He is mostly white, with beautiful brown markings. He is now three years old and very active and muscular. Jack "talks" to us continuously, has a very endearing personality to all he meets and loves to lead us down stairs by pulling on our robes. Jack loves to sit and have "conversations" with us, whether we begin them or he does. He also loves to "talk" to strangers and will always greet them with a loving lick or active conversation, which is why he would not be a therapy dog, I guess.
India with a smile as usual. India has been a phenomenal mom. Her first time in the show ring, I spoke with the judge afterwards. The judge told me that when she spotted her, she was winners bitch, but then saw she was six months old and not as confident in the ring as others. Oh well, nine years later and she went on to be a show stopper. She has a beautiful conformation and is the mother of Asia, Jamaica and Java. India is the pups grand dam.
Morocco, always with a ball in his mouth. Morocco is a 53 lb. lap dog. He is so handsome, solid muscle with a strong chest and jaw. He is Harley's son, if that means anything, and he is such an awe inspiring site on his own. He HATED the show ring and just wanted to play with the other dogs. Showing is for some, not for others and I am not going to show a dog that doesn't enjoy it. He is the pups grand sire. Morocco loves to dance, swim and ride our jet skis.
Morocco in the winter. What a handsome dude.
