Pictures: Portuguese Water Dogs
Pictures of Portuguese Water Dogs will give you an idea of what President Obama's dog is like. Who knows? You might decide you want one for yourself.
These first nine images are courtesy of the American Kennel Club.
How can you resist that face! The look in those eyes tells you how intelligent this breed is.
Heart of a Lion
A lion clip is a common cut for this dog's waterproof coat. This retriever clip is also common and shows off the curly coat.
Some dogs have a wavy coat that is also acceptable. Either way, the Portuguese Water Dog is a striking dog.
While the coat is hypoallergenic, it also requires regular maintenance. Something to keep in mind if you're considering getting one of these dogs.
Portuguese Water Dogs respond very well to training. Start them early, and you'll have a wonderful companion.
It's never too early to begin a training program.
It's easy to see why the Obamas chose a Portuguese Water Dog as their new family member.
Won't Stay Small Long
These little guys will grow between 35 to 60 pounds and 17 to 23 inches tall.
