All our dogs came from champion parents and could no doubt all be champions themselves had we chosen to show them and enter into that political ring. That would mean leaving some of our dogs at home with my husband & traveling with only a few at a time. I would miss them too much to do that & maybe even Mike, my husband, too. We would rather stay home together with all of them so we can play and enjoy every single day as a pack.
How will you know if it is a Polish Sea Dog Pirate?
He will be wearing 2 eye patches!
Tribute to THOR Infante De Grifford, (Portugal & US AKC)
Figurr’in PWD came from Portugal & desiring to have the Very Best Stud possible to start our kennel we tracked down the best breeder in the world. We were truly blessed to get Mr. Stud Muffin Thor from Augusto Guimaraes who owned the famous & historic De Grifford Kennel in Portugal. Augusto the Portuguese Water Dog Guru of the world bred true standard size and temperament for over 65 years.
His strong genes and direct Portuguese bloodlines produced puppies that continue his special bloodlines for us. He was loyal, loving and devoted to all his lady pirate beauties and us. His favorite pick up line, “I’ve sailed the Seven Seas, and you’re the sleekest schooner I’ve ever sighted”.
Died September 14, 2017. Thor went on 3 hikes with his pack and took his late afternoon nap in his favorite dog bed. He died in his sleep. We should all be so lucky. We slid him down into his grave and he lay there with the biggest smile on his face. He found Augusto and some of his littermates and they were already having fun together. God Bless Him. He was a good old boy and died with his boots on. We’ll always love you and meet at that famous rainbow bridge.

About White Portuguese Dogs
True white PWD many people, including some breeders in the US, didn’t realize are born Ivory or Cream color and then change to white. If you aren’t well versed on the breed you may mistakenly think they look like a Golden Retriever or Golden Doodle at first. As their special little portie bodies develop and grown any one can see that they definitely are 100% to standard Portuguese Water Dog puppies.
Standard Rare White Porties like ours have black noses and eyes. During the winter noses change from black to pinkish called winter noses. True white PWD have bluish skin like their black siblings. The whites born in the US that sometimes develop black ticking know as Irish and the white with black spots called party color have pink skin. Our DNA testing done by the AKC confirmed our special pups to be the solid white original true to standard PWD. Eclipse from our kennel has won championships all over Europe!
