Santa's Early Christmas Gift - Portuguese Water Dog Puppies

Group Placement Group
Frolic (COVE'S END IT HAD TO BE YOU, CGC, WWD, NFA, OA, OAJ) is due to whelp on Dec. 17th. This will be Frolic's third and final litter. We are proud to say that her earlier puppies are successfully proving themselves as both wonderful and dearly loved family members and performance dogs as well. So far they have achieved titles in conformation, agility, and water. Her puppies have tons of drive with a passion for work.

Stinger Conformation CH OVERLOOK LISIJI BEE STILL MY HEART CGC, NA, NAJ and WWD (aka Stinger) is the sire of this litter. He's a grandson of the famous, Lady Bug. Stinger is an amazing boy, who was shown lightly and finished his AKC Championship easily with a 4 point major, followed by three 5 point majors. Stinger is truly an exceptional boy, with a beautiful temperament - I often refer to him as my teddy bear as he loves to cuddle. He's only two years old and his accomplishments speak volumes with titles in conformation, agility and water. Stinger lives to please us and has been a joy to live with since day he arrived.



Frolic is a five year old Portuguese Water Dog who is a proven producer, athlete and dearly loved family member. She consistently places in the top ribbons and after this litter I look forward to years of competing with her in water and agility.

Most importantly, Frolic is a sweet, highly enthusiastic and very loving dog. She is always ready to be the center of every activity, including lots of attention from her people. Frolic has a repertoire of antics that have both amused and challenged us. Her big personality has had us smiling since she was a very young puppy. She has a lighthearted playfulness that warms our hearts.

Frolic is a daughter of Caribe who was awarded first place at the PWD National Specialty, he also sired Matisse. Matisse is the highest achieving Portuguese Water Dog to have ever entered a conformation ring in America. Frolic's mother, our Lucy, produced 32 puppies in three litters, she has 16 AKC titles. At almost 12, she is now semi retired and yet continues to train and work daily. In 2017 she received the prestigious " Producer of Merit Award" from our parent club, the Portuguese Water Dog Club of America.

We are looking for a select group of wonderful families to adopt our new puppies. A PWD puppy is sweet, loving and requires a commitment of time and energy to raise. With rare exceptions, we only place puppies in families where someone is home during the day, has a fenced yard and children are over the age of five.

Cove's End's breeding decisions are based on temperament and structure as well as health clearances. Our breeding program has produced dogs that have excelled in conformation, water, agility, rally, barn hunt and tracking. More importantly, they are all well loved family members.
