Obama Confirms First Dog Will Come From A Shelter

Rejoice! During an interview with ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos”, President-elect Barack Obama confirmed that the family has narrowed their search for a First Dog – and that it will definitely be coming from a shelter. He said they had settled on either a labradoodle or a Portuguese water hound. “Now, we’ll go to a shelter and see when either one of those comes up,” he added.

The search for the White House dog has been complicated by 10-year-old Malia Obama’s allergies — which led many to believe that the family might go with a breeder. Thankfully, the President-elect appears to be well on his way to backing up earlier support for shelter and animal rescue programs. Truly, such action brings wonderful attention to the multitude of adoption and rescue initiatives across the country.

We look forward to receiving news of what lucky pup gets the nod!

While I’m a huge sucker for the sweet stuff, I can’t escape the seasonal dread of seeing lovers carelessly link up gestures of romance with animal exploitation.
