SunKissed Portuguese Water Dogs


It has been 20 years since I first set forth to pursue my dog of choice -  the Portuguese Water Dog; I soon realized this was not going to be an easy task. It was quite disheartening  time after time to track down one of these elusive puppies only to find that the breeder had placed such stringent rules and regulations with spay/neuter  contracts that it was near impossible to buy one. AKC rules dictate that a dog must be intact to participate in the show ring. One breeder declared (prior to hanging up on me) that if I didn't agree to neuter my male then I would have to get one outside the country because no one would sell me one  here. I decided to do just that. Although it was never my intention to breed these dogs, I soon decided that I wanted to help this wonderful, athletic family dog to prosper in this country as both a family pet, and a show ring dog to anyone with the patience and desire to own one.

It took a few years, but I am quite proud of the Porties I've acquired  overseas and have placed some beautiful healthy pups into the arms of many happy new owners. It is my fondest wish, that whether you're looking for a best friend that's a couch potato or anOlympic backyard swimmer, that you'll find our puppies as special as we do.

Breeding Porties has always been a Family Affair. My youngest daughter is Autism Spectrum and helping take care of our Portie gang and getting puppies ready for their New Forever Families is her Greatest Joy. A percentage of all sales from Sunkissed Portuguese Water Dogs goes to the Make A Wish Foundation and to Shriners.
