This was my thought. It's going to be hard to find this breed in a shelter. Maybe one could magically appear in a animal shelter. LOL. The black dogs are my favorite. I sure hope they don't clip the dog like the one in the pic. I've always disliked the way poodles are clipped for show, but after researching the breed there's a reason for the crazy clip. It seems the dog's lower half is shaved to move through water faster, just like competitive swimmer's shave arms and legs.

Now, if they had asked me, LOL, I would have recommended a soft-coated Wheaten Terrier. It's medium-sized, very smart, very cuddly and has "hair" rather than fur so it's better for people who may be allergic. Oh, well!

Hope the kids enjoy their dog. Puppies teethe, chew things to bits, and pee/poop on stuff so while they may be initially disappointed that they're not getting a puppy, an older dog will be a much better pal for them.
teatime, we agree on something. I love the Wheaten Terrier also, but then again I've never met a terrier I didn't like, although I am afraid of the American Staffordshire. I owned poodles and they are pretty good dogs.

Are they looking for a purebred dog? I bet if that's their intent, they'll actually go to a breeder. Hmmmm... I bet that was the plan all along. Just better PR to say they're "looking" for a rescue.

The dog is probably going to be trained by professionals before the Obama's take it. The Bidens brought a German Shepherd puppy right after he was elected and they had a trainer. In an interview recently, Michelle reiterated comments made in the Sixty Minute interview that the girls have chores and that was not going to change when they moved to the White House. Barack added, they will be cleaning up the dog poop. It seems obvious these children are delightful and not the least bit spoiled. BTW - I don't what Michelle looks like on Time Magazine cover, but she's on the March Vogue I just bought.

His full name could be Spendapalooza but the kids can call him Spendy.
