Portuguese Water Dog
Had a great experience with first person contacted. No pressure, lots of knowledge and info. Only problem was the communication once I purchased. Had to ask a couple of times about progress and timing of delivery. Very happy with my new puppy!

How dog-friendly is Oregon?
Super dog-friendly! Oregon is regularly ranked in the top five best states for pets. Two of the best review sites for pet safety and comfort are Pawsafe and Safewise. Both give Oregon excellent marks.
Pawsafe’s study examined each state according to some pet-friendly metrics. They evaluated things like animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations and services, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails.
In the Pawsafe study, Oregon ranked as the 4th most pet-friendly state in the country. The state also scored well for its animal welfare laws, which related to animal abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.
In their own separate study, Safewise also ranked Oregon as the 4th most pet-friendly state, for many of the same factors. Combining these two studies puts Oregon at the front of the pack of pet-friendly states!
