So you’re looking to adopt an Portuguese Water Dog, or already have one?

According to the American Kennel Club, “The Portuguese Water Dog is super-smart and very biddable—meaning he’s easy to train and eager to please. The breed can be groomed in two styles: The retriever clip (the entire coat is clipped to one inch in length, with the tail tip at full length) or the more check-me-out lion clip, where the coat on the hindquarters and muzzle is clipped down to the skin. The bright and biddable Portuguese Water Dog was bred to be an all-around fisherman’s helper. The robust, medium-sized body is covered by a coat of tight, low-shedding curls. They are eager and athletic companions built for water work.”

An Portuguese Water Dog typically ranges from 43.18cm to 58.42cm in height, and weighs from 15.875732950000002kg to 27.2155422kg.
