The Obama's Pick a Presidential Pooch!

Come April, the Obama family will have a new furry friend in the White House. After months of speculation, they have decided to adopt a Portuguese Water Dog. First lady Michelle Obama spilled the news to People Magazine along with a few potential pet names...Frank and Moose.

So what is it about the Portuguese Water Dog you ask? Rumor has it these fluffy pups have a wonderful temperament. Let's learn a little more about this soon to be First Dog of the United States.

Originating from the coasts of Portugal, this medium-sized breed is prized for its strength, spirit and soundness. Athletic and active, these dogs require vigorous exercise but are very intelligent and respond well to obedience training. For all of you with pet allergies, the Portuguese Water Dog's profuse coat is hypoallergenic.

It's good to see that the Obama's have decided to adopt! There are so many animals that could use great homes and would make even better pets. It's nice to see them giving the pup a chance! :)
