The Legacy Donors are a group of individual donors who have made a bequest to the Portuguese Water Dog Foundation in their wills. We are forever thankful to these individuals, and to whom we are very grateful.

Beverly Rafferty

Beverly Dees Rafferty

Bev was a fighter who fought as hard for the health of the dogs she loved as for her own. She was an inspiration who showed us how to live life in the face of incredible adversity and not let that adversity define who you are. Bev was as tenacious and self-willed as the wonderful breed she chose to dedicate her life to.

Bev and her Pinehaven Kennel were a part of the history of the breed in this country, a history we must never lose sight of. Be free Bev, in the arms of the amazing dogs and people you loved who went on before you.
