Health Testing

Morgan and Storm have a registration and DNA profile with AKC, as well as, a CPC Registration (Portugal Dog registry). 

In addition, Morgan, Freeman and Storm have all had DNA genetic marker tests recommended by PWDCA (Portuguese Water Dog Club of America).  Jagger is cleared by parantage.

As well as the genetic tests, are negative for hip dysplasia and eye diseases.  Jagger will have his hips tested when he is two.  They are CHIC Certified through OFA, as well.   Click on the Logo below to learn importance of CHIC Certification and how it can help

Aptitudes

All our dogs are exceptional athletes, great retrievers, and  above all, incredibly intelligent. 

Morgan and Jagger are the Socialites and have gone regularly on nursing home visits, while Freeman and Storm are more about business. 

As mentioned earlier we love the water dog trials and have attended both PWD and Newfoundand Water Trials, but have not yet been able to compete in them.  Covid and family deaths has put a bit of a damper on that.   Learn more here at Great Lake Portuguese Water Dog club

Health Testing and Pedigrees

 

Granted, our genetic testing and certifications can be seen on the OFA registry, but they don’t show the actual reports.  Never the less in order to receive CHIC certifications all testings must be done at approved laboratories. 

However, if you would like to view the actual reports, we have uploaded copies of them on the Paw Prints data base.   To  view the reports click on the Paw Print Logos below each dog and it will take you to the Paw Prints data base.   

Whether getting a puppy from us or someone else we highly recommend checking the OFA registry or an approved laboratories to make sure all genetic testing has been done and is legitimate.

Morgan

Morgan comes from an excellent European blood line.  She is a wavy with beautiful black silky hair and minimal white markings.  As mentioned, she is exceptionally athletic, light on her feet and can turn on a dime.  On the other hand, she is incredibly spirited and enthusiastic while at work, play or what ever life throws her way.  She is Ms Personality and knows no strangers. 

 

We have taken her on several nursing home visits preparing her for Therapy work.  She loves going for car rides and has been a good mentor for our other pwds.  Similarly, Morgan is loyal, protective and loves to please her human companions.   Her focus for AKC  is obedience, good citizenship, and Therapy.  She would be exceptional for Agility, but we are not that agile.

freeman

There was never a doubt that we would get a second pwd.  When  Morgan turned a year old we packed her up and set off cross country to claim Freeman our next family addition.    Incidentally, he is a wavy black with white markings also coming from an excellent European bloodline of champions.

Not with standing, is his extreme intelligence, besides his athleticism.  Like a detective, he will search, find and lead Morgan to her lost Frisbee long before dreading the thought of sharing his.   

Like Morgan, Freeman is  an excellent guard dog very loyal, loving and protecting of both his puppies and human family.  Even though he will tolerate social outings, his forte is the water. Living up to the water dog breed, he loves the water.  In particular, he loves dock diving and underwater retrieving.  .

When he is outside he is all about business and doing a job.  We will continue obedience training and crowd acclimation while moving him towards water trials events.

Storm

Storm would be considered a curly brown, and also an import like Morgan.  Likewise, she comes from an excellent European bloodline of champions.  Accordingly, the day we picked her up at Detroit Metro Airport, we found ourselves dodging severe storms, hence her name.  Anyways, like Morgan and Freeman, she lives up to the athleticism and intelligence known to this breed.     

 

 

Fn terms of personality and temperaments, hers  lays somewhere between Morgan and Freeman.  She loves to play and Jagger is her best playmate.  Storm is extremely loyal and is always at our feet and she believes she is a lap dog.   She is an excellent retriever but hasn’t quite conquered the skill of catching the Frisbee on the fly yet.  Her focus in AKC future will we water trials.

JaGGer

Jagger aka Jibbing in the eye of the Storm is a wavy black with minimal white makings. He is a puppy we chose to keep out of Morgans and Freeman’s litter.  He has excellent conformation and temperament.  Jagger is a bit of a social lite like his mother.  He is athletic like the rest and reminds us of Tigger in Winnie the Pooh.  What do Tiggers do best – why bounce of course.
