Here at Goldendoodleranch we love Goldendoodles which made me want to look into the history of Poodle Mixes and I came upon one of the first a Portuguese water dog created centuries ago, and also nicknamed as Portie. Portuguese water dog is a Chesapeake Bay Retriever and Poodle Mixed. They were trained to help Portugal fishermen, thus the name Porties. PWD, Portie dogs would dive in water and free tangled nets or dive in cold icy waters to take messages from ship to ship. Here in America AKC recognized them in 1984. They love water and are very good swimmers! Because of the working dog in them, they are highly intelligent, & love the human companionship, both attributes make them easy to train. They love retrieving balls from water, and other activities. They are no shed, great family dogs for a active family. Great with kids.
