Rogue x Xena, February 18, 2024

There are eight puppies in this litter. Seven girls who are mostly black with some white (six are wavy and one is curly) and one curly brown boy.

They are being raised with the Puppy Culture protocol. This is a proven method for raising puppies that are resilient and bounce back when encountering new experiences. They are the third generation of Puppy Culture puppies. Their grandmother Ruby (who is 10) was my first Puppy Culture litter. All of her puppies were raised with Puppy Culture, and now Xena’s puppies are being raised with Puppy Culture.

These early experiences and the solid temperaments of their parents mean these puppies, with the training necessary for any dog, should become well behaved, well-mannered adults.

Both Xena  and Rogue Have had all the testing recommended by the PWDCA (Portuguese Water Dog Club of America.)

If you are interested in a puppy from this litter please read Getting a Miraval Puppy and then fill out an application. (there is a link on that page.)
