Went to a local snake Saturday Parade and saw the cutest little black dog. It reminded me of my Nezzie as a Puppy...It was about 35lbs smaller dog..but had the doodle look .
I asked the young girl if she had a doodle...Slightly insulted young woman informed me it was a Portuguese Water dog....I told her it reminded me of my labradoodle ...Her mom chirped in well he is part Portuguese Water dog but mother was a poodle ...
I laughed ..even we doodle people are somewhat elitist.....

The first time I saw a portuguese water dog I totally thought it was a labradoodle. I wonder what that would look like bred to a poodle...did it have very very curly hair?

When we first got Bella and took her to the park, there was little girl (about 6) there who asked if she was a Portuguese Water Dog. She knew EVERYTHING about them and said Bella looked exactly like one. (Her Grandmother had 2) :D .

I almost got a PWD & can totally imagine a PWD/poodle mix would look just like a labradoodle.

Last week at the lake, someone asked me if dizzy Ms. Lizzie was an Irish Wolfhound! HAHAHA She is soooooooo not irish or wolfish for that matter! To their credit, she was wet so her fur was sticking to her & she looked really leggy. Too funny.

I can see why sometimes others would mistake a wavy wiry haired doodle (if tall like DENVER) could be ALMOST mistaken for a irish wolfhound. I had someone bring theirs to work recently to show me hahahhaa

NOW if I put peanut up on a toy shelf she'd look like a stuffed animal


Has anyone read the articles on the web about why they dont' use the portguese water dogs for doodle breeding? they say it's temperament. That retrievers and poodles produce a much nicer friendlier tempermant

I was going to mention that but didnt want to offend any PWD fans. When I was researching the breed, I ran across alot of warnings i.e. "this breed is for experienced dog owners" & got the distinct impression the PWDs were a bit dominant & nervous.

Of course, this is COMPLETELY unlike our doodles. Ya know what they say...doodles just wanna have fun!

We're working on that...usually just makes him howl like a bear! Her day will come! I'm really beginning to think she's not going to get much bigger. Still hasn't really gained any weight since I've had her. Eats like a little piggie. Not that I need her to get as big as jonah...or Colorado.... :wink:

I love the Irish Wolfhound I have always wanted one, but the smell and shed and size were a little to much!! So when I saw first generation Labradoodle I immediately thought mini wolfhound! Yeehaw!

PWD's and Doodles

I took in a rescue PWD years ago. The dog had a difficult start in life and I gave him my all! He was neurotic, needed to be skin close all the time, seperation anxiety that was not treatable with any intervention known to the dog psychologist I worked with. I learned more about the breed through the PWD Society in my state. They are not easy to raise, and after biting my son when he came to visit, I had to put the poor fellow down. In thinking about my next dog, a PWD was NOT the breed I wanted. My Doodle boy Sammy is now two years old, and a delight! He is sensitive and loyal, very easy to train, funny and playful, and so smart he likes to outfox me at times. I'm so grateful to others for sharing the delights of this breed. I love Sammy more than I ever imagined I could love a companion animal.
