As I'm sure we all know by now, the US presidential family is getting a dog. They are searching for a rescue dog to adopt from a shelter and the breed they have selected is the Portugese Water Dog. There are not too many of these guys in rescue right now - only 5 listed on Petfinder (not all rescue dogs are listed here, remember). Though I am not personally familiar with this breed, I have read that PWDs can be quite active dogs that require daily vigorous exercise. Here's the wiki about them, and here's the AKC breed standard.
Definitely not a dog to get without first researching and learning about the breed!
Gatsby is a cute guy - not much info about him up on petfinder. Looks like if you want to know more, you'll need to contact the rescue.
We are all hoping this does not turn into another "101 Dalmations Syndrome" situation but you can bet that if the presidential family does get a PWD, there will be puppy mills popping up everywhere to provide the public with these dogs.
