Ever since President-elect Barack Obama announced last Tuesday night he would be bringing a puppy to the White House, the country has been suggesting the perfect breed of dog for the family. Now the rest of the world is weighing in to help find the First Pooch.
Michelle and Barack Obama are looking for a hypoallergenic dog, because daughter Malia has allergies. The Associated Press reports that the country of Peru is offering to give the Obamas a four-month-old Peruvian Hairless Dog -- Peru's national breed -- named Machu Picchu.
The Friends of the Peruvian Hairless Dog Association's President Claudia Galvez says, "My family also has suffered from not being able to have a pet because my son and I are asthmatic, so we thought it would be ideal for him (Obama) to have a dog like ours." Galvez adds that this breed is flealess and often odorless.
