Portuguese Water Dog

We just learned about the type of dog the beagle.

Another type of dog is the Portuguese Water Dog.
Just like you'd think with a name like that, these dogs love the water.

This type of dog was used long ago to help with ships and with fishmen.
They could herd fish into nets, go out in the water to help get broken nets or fishing tools that fell in the water.
They also were used to carry things from one ship to another, swimming through the water.
