I have mixed emotions about adopting a rescue dog or puppy mill puppy, as opposed to a pure bred. Of course both situations have many pro's & con's. This is definitely a "hot topic". I have had over 16 dogs in my 65 years. Mostly pure bred, a Heinz 57 or 2. However, every single dog was chosen because that particular breed would fit the needs of our family AT THAT POINT IN OUR LIVES. Something I know was paramount in the Obama's choosing a hypo-allergenic breed. I read the article, and the wonderful "therapy dog" skills that Sunny has, makes her a perfect choice for the President and his family.

Very disappointed that President Obama did not keep his word that the family would be adopting. People who volunteer for rescue groups and work in shelters had hoped that that he would lead by example. There are thousands of homeless dogs in shelters and pure breed rescue groups that would have fit his family's needs. SEE WWW.PETFINDER.COM It is unfortunate that another breeder made money on the back of an innocent animal And that the press is giving free advertisement to this breeder and promoting breeding while millions die in shelters every year. Breeders/Puppymills/Petstores nationwide make $millions$ and most do not pay INCOME TAX or charge SALES TAX. The IRS needs to investigate this. States need to regulate these individuals. Most mills have 250 dogs that stay in cages and do nothing but make puppies that sell for $500 each. 2 pregnancies per year each. Do the math. Please spay and neuter and don't buy while millions die.

Think Allergy. I heard there is allergy in the Obama family. A non allergic dog like a Bishon , who is playful , smart , and very cute. A white dog for the white house.

first id like ot make a comment about the "expensive" dog comment..this is the president he doesn't have to worry about price, plus any breeder would be more then happy to give the president a dog jsut to say their linage is in the whitehouse, but u cant even use a forum so what can we expect. but Id like to see the president get a more Americain breed like an Americian Water Spaniel, and deffiantly not a doodle thsoe dogs dont need to be any popular so these money hungry deigner breeders don;t ruin the dog population any more.

Choosing a shelter animal sets a very good example!! There are still a number of animals in shelters across the country suffering from Katrina as well as those effected by present economy. Kudos to you Mr. President!!

Deb, I hate to correct a fellow Pennsylvanian Iwas born and raised in Philadelphia), But if you had been keeping up with this, you would know that the Obamas want to get their Labradoodle or Portuguese Water Dog from a rescue site. Most rescue sites only charge a minimal fee if anything to someone willing to give a good home to a poor animal who doesn't have one.
