The New First Dog!

The Obama's are being presented with a super cute Portugese Water Dog puppy, who they are naming Bo today. A present from Senator Ted Kennedy, Bo is 6 months old and was in need of re-homing. What is re-homing, you ask? Re-homing is when a dog is purchased from a REPUTABLE breeder and turns out to not be a good fit for a family. The breeder than takes the puppy back and finds it a more suitable home. Though not a rescue, the Obama's are making a "sizeable" donation to help rescued pups everywhere.

Not everyone is thrilled that the Obama's chose to not get a rescue. Best Friends Animal Society, a sanctuary for animals, has done a great job of voicing their concerns in their recent blog post.
