The distinct-looking and very dignified Portuguese Water Dog has seen a spike in popularity since the Obama family brought one to the White House in 2009. These water-lovers have boundless energy and require owners who can keep up with their incessant desire for activity. If you have a pool, even better. If not, be prepared for a dog who will try and get wet at every opportunity. Porties, as they’re lovingly dubbed, are great family dogs, being highly affectionate, intelligent, social and playful. Their luxuriously curled or waved fur is a trademark. Owners should make sure to keep their Portie engaged mentally, exercised sufficiently and as much a part of the family as they can, since this breed dotes on its human pack.
