    Does anyone know of any dog breeds that in their description say they "aren't" a water dog.. yet they LOVE the water??

    #1 - Belgian Tervuren/Gronendael

    ALL the Belgians I know are completely obsessed with water.. yet in their description they aren't supposed to like it lol

  4. Rottweilers are not typically known for being water dogs, but MANY are.

    My rottie/dobe mix loved jumping in my parents pool.

    My parents fat pug also LOVES the water. She gets excited when you say... "take a bath?".

    Poodles are supposed to like water, since they were originally bred to be water retriever, though I think my line of poodles have been way diluted to show any instinct for it. :D Though out of the 3 Boomer does like water and will retrieve anything I through (stick, ball).

    I did have a Dobe that loved water. I couldn't go near a lake or pound without hearing CASSPLOOSH! as soon as we got near it.

    Though many say French Bulldogs can't swim, my friend's Frenchie can swim faster than my Chessies!

    Well I'm not sure but have not read anything to the contrary but I don't think ACDS are water dogs however I have yet to meet one that does not love it

    Shih-Tzus are known not to be overly found of it and everyone that owns one knows the are excellent "Pillow Babysitters " but my ladies didn't read that chapter lol
