A friend of mine was one of the first Americans to own a portuguese water dog
their history is extremely complicated
some Portuguese diplomat or royalty,owned all the last of the breed,she became insane and starting hunting the dogs friend ( of Portuguese origin) through family connections was able to get a pup shipped to the states when there were only 600 of them left in the world...Happy the breed has made a comeback, thanks Mr. President....they are amazing dogs, used as a life preserver in the days when fishermen couldn't swim.These magnificent dogs would jump in after them and swim them to safety, AN AMAZING HERITAGE STORY OF A DOG BREED.Obviously I like Bo ( my first setter's name ) the BEST.

Bush's dog Barney recently died. I still am bothered that Obama did not search for a shelter pet. This would have made a great statement.

Bo's a very cut dog but I agree with Allan Y that maybe an effort could have been made to get one from a shelter. Now that would have made a statement!
