Mini Portidoodle History

The Mini Portidoodle dogs are the newest members of the Doodle Breed world. A hybrid mix between a purebred Portuguese Water Dog and a purebred Miniature Poodle, the Mini Portidoodle first appeared in the United States in the past few years. By mixing two highly popular dog breeds, professional breeders aimed to create a hybrid that would possess the hypoallergenic qualities, keen intelligence, agility, and fun nature of both parent breeds. A gift to the world, the Mini Portipoo breed impressed from the get-go and is one of the most sought-after designer breeds. As a modern Doodle, the Portidoodle breed doesn’t have much history, so to better understand it, we can take a look at the history of the Portuguese Water Dog and Poodle parent breeds.

The Portuguese Water Dog, also known as Cao de Agua (dog of water) is a centuries-old breed that originated in Portugal. These remarkable dogs were considered the fisherman’s best friends as they would often be seen on Portuguese fishing ships along the coast of Portugal. With their webbed paws, excellent swimming capabilities, and great love for water, the Portuguese Water Dogs were trained to lure fish into nets, retrieve fishing gear and nets from the water, and act as messengers between fishing vessels. When fishing ships joined the modernized era, the Portuguese Water dogs moved on to become loyal, affectionate, and treasured companion pets.  

The Poodles, famous for their big brains, gorgeous looks, and sweet nature, are a breed with a most impressive history. Developed in Germany, Poodles have been long admired for their stunning looks, retrieving skills, performance with the traveling circus, therapy work, companionship, and sporting titles. Officially recognized by the AKC for their three sizes (Standard Poodle, Miniature Poodle, and Toy Poodle), Poodles, regardless of their size, never fail to impress with their agility, friendliness, and learning skills. They are considered the second most intelligent dog breed in the world and the top breed in many countries.
