Welcome To Lighthouse Porties

We are located on Lake Travis just outside of Austin, Texas, the perfect spot for our Portuguese Water Dogs.

 

We have had dogs for over 40 years and they have always been an integral part of our family. After the loss of our last two dogs, we researched breeds to find a good fit for our family. We wanted a dog that had minimal shedding, was trainable, good with the grandchildren and loved the outdoors and water. The Portuguese Water Dog fit all of our desires.

While we were looking at puppies, we came across the story of Jewel who was a special needs Portuguese Water Dog (PWD). Believing we could provide the care she needed, we adopted her and re-named her Rosy. Thinking a healthy playmate would be good for her, we also adopted her brother, Jackson.

 

Rosy and Jackson soon took over our home and our hearts and we had a newfound appreciation for PWDs, which we wanted others to experience as well. That led us to the decision to breed. We adopted Gabriela, whose mother is from Portugal, to be Jackson’s mate. 

 

Our dogs are AKC registered and have had the AKC's recommended genetic screening done.
