OUR STORY

Welcome to our website! We developed this site to share with you our wonderful Portuguese Water Dogs. We would like to take a moment to introduce ourselves.
 

We are Julie Bailey and Kevin Kelly.  In 2003 we adopted a cute dog named Coco from the local Humane Society of Flower Mound, TX.  Coco turned out to be a Portuguese Water Dog of unknown heritage.  Shortly thereafter, along came our first show dog, Finney - Ch Amigo's Phineas Finn...  a PWD born on St. Patricks Day, thus the Irish name. Finney is was a gorgeous brown PWD who finished his championship easily in 2 months.

In 2007, we purchased a new puppy, Story, from Jim & Kim Beach of Diamante Portuguese Water Dogs.  Story became a champion - Ch Diamante's My She was Yare - soon after turning 2 yrs old. With Story, their fate was sealed and we became completely absorbed in all aspects of the Portuguese Water Dog breed.  

As full members in the Portuguese Water Dog Club of America, we adhere to all genetic and health testing recommended by the national club. As PWD enthusiasts and breeders, we are dedicated to the improvement and betterment of the breed"  If you don't already know, you will soon discover the Portuguese Water Dog is very special.
