Short Portuguese Water Dog description:
The Portuguese Water Dog is medium sized, well muscled dog breed with average height between 43-57 cm which is 17-22 inch and weight between 15-27 kg, which is 33-60 pounds. Females are naturally little bit smaller then males.

Portuguese Water dogs are just made for swimming. They have webbed toes and flat paws that work like flippers. Their strong tail is like a rudder and it makes it easier for them to navigate when swimming. And we can not forget about the waterproof thick coat, which enables them to swim even in cold waters.
