  3. Obama Family Is Getting A Labradoodle?

    November 16, 2008 by barbara

    During President-Elect Barack Obama’s acceptance speech on November,4th, 2008, he reiterated his promise to his daughters that they have earned a new puppy who will be going with them to the White House.  Reports say that the new First Family is considering a Labradoodle.  Now just what kind of dogs are Labradoodles, you asked?  Well, they are a cross between Labrador Retrievers and the Standard Poodles.  This breed is sociable, non aggressive and friendly.  They are highly intelligent and trainability which make them the ultimate doggie companion and great guide for people with sight impairment.  They also work well as therapy dogs and other assistance dogs.  As Malia Obama is allergic, their new pet has to be hypoallergenic and a Labradoodle is just the perfect choice under such circumstances because of their non allergic coats.  Also, the Labradoodle has very little or no doggie odour, even in wet weather.  Their coats come in a variety of colours such as black, gold, cream, silver, chocolate, apricot cream and red.

    I certainly hope that America’s Next First Pooch is a Labradoodle.  Whether the Obama’s Labradoodle is going to be from the animal shelter or pet shop, it sure is going to be one of the most watched dogs in the world. I cannot wait to see the Obama Labradoodle and the name they will pick for the pooch.  I know for sure that the First Dog is going to be a cute one.

    To find our more information about the Labradoodle Dog, do check out Labradoodle-Dogs.Net.  This website is the largest breeder directory online and is committed to help breeders and owners of Labradoodle to connect in a safe and secure environment.  If you want a friend in Washington, get a Labradoodle :)
