The Portuguese Water Dog is unfortunately, becoming a "high demand" breed. There are a lot of puppies now being sold on internet websites from people who are not involved for the betterment of the breed. Please - do your homework and "Buyer Beware".
VISIT the official Portuguese Water Dog Club of America (PWDCA) website to learn about the importance of genetic health testing, how to recognize an ethical, responsible breeder and other information you must know before bringing a new puppy into your home. This is not a breed for just anyone!
RESEARCH the breeder. If you can personally visit the breeder's home before
making this important decision. Written instructions on feeding, training, care
and grooming should be provided by the breeders, along with pedigree, health,
vaccination records and a contract. VERIFY that both parents have undergone appropriate
health testing and see a copy of the certificates as proof. Ask for references
from puppy buyer's from previous litters the breeder raised - be informed and
A breeder should not place a puppy into a new home until at least 8 weeks of age or older. Questar typical places puppies when they are 10 weeks old.
