The Sanford's have been praying for the Obama's to select a Portuguese Water Dog to take with them to the White House. We too had allergy issues here, but frankly just couldn't find a breed that was big enough to handle to traffic in and out of our house without getting crushed to death.
Porties or PWD's are an excellent choice for the First Family. We've had our Sierra Leone for over a year and she is an absolutely beautiful animal, perfect for girls who want to give a dog constant love. The best thing about this...only the Obama's will appreciate this is that you use Black Hair Care products on them...NO LIE!
They love the water, their hair is silky to the touch, they are big enough that no one will step on them, yet small enough to cuddle at the foot of your bed. Grandma will grow to love'em too.
Here are some shots of our Portuguese Water Dog, I understand all the shelter talk, but the bottom line is that the animal has to be the right fit for your family and your lifestyle. Our dog travels everywhere with us. For more tales of our Portie,CLICK HERE
Sierra loves to fetch the ball and love to ball of any kind, especially soccer.
As her name implies...she's a water dog.
