President-Elect Barack Obama and his wife Michelle promised their daughters that when the election was over they would get a dog and it looks like they plan to adopt a rescue dog. Yea!
They were favoring a Goldendoodle, but several animal welfare groups urged the Obamas to adopt a dog rather than get a dog from a breeder. The future First Family could still get a Goldendoodle through a breed rescue group. A poll on DailKos shows people think the Obamas should get a mutt—it’s winning with 43% of the vote. You can vote too.
