Could This Be the Future First Dog?

Who could say no to that face?!
The Obama family's dog search just got a little easier (maybe).

Here’s what we know: The soon-to-be first family wants either a Labradoodle or a Portuguese water dog, and they’d like to get their dog from an animal rescue or a shelter. Well, Obama family, the Prince George’s County SPCA can help you out.

If you go with a Labradoodle—and, as we previously reported, your neighbor is lobbying hard for the breed—Tamela Terry, president of the PGSPCA, might have the dog of your dreams. She e-mailed us yesterday with photos and a description of an adorable seven-month-old Labradoodle named Sydney currently up for adoption.

Terry writes:
“Sydney … is just great with everyone:  kids, other dogs, cats, you name it. She is house-trained already, and she knows how to use a dog door! She’s crate trained, leash trained, and knows her basic commands.”

Sounds perfect, no? Sydney is ready for adoption now, Mr. Obama, so contact Terry as soon as possible if you’re interested in meeting her.

Terry says: “This beautiful girl could be the best thing to happen to the Obamas all year!” Well, besides Barack becoming President, that is.
