What Makes Portuguese Water Dogs So Special?

These water dogs have an incredibly rich history as working crew members on Portugal fishing vessels. Once their services were no longer required, they almost went extinct and were saved by some very dedicated individuals devoted to preserving this special breed of dog.

Beverley Cordukes says...

We've enjoyed working with you during visits to see the puppies and find you to be very knowledgeable about the PWD breed. Very eager to share what you know to ensure that all prospective owners are fully aware of the requirements to raise a PWD puppy into a well mannered, happy, socialized and healthy dog. We appreciated all the little details you took care of to make the selection and adoption process an enjoyable one.

We would not hesitate to recommend you as a breeder and I have already mentioned to several people about Acostar and how much someone else would benefit by going to you as a breeder for a PWD puppy. We are sincerely grateful for having Lola in our lives are look forward to many years of togetherness.
