Uh-Bo! Questions Raised About Barack Obama, First Dog

by at . Comments

Love him or hate him, there's no debating the fact that Barack Obama has stuck to his campaign promises.

The President is focused on restructuring the country's health care, while simultaneously revising the tax code to pre-George W. Bush days.

But Obama stands accused of not following through on one, canine-related promise he made to voters: to save the White House dog from a shelter.

Earlier this week, Bo (pictured) - a Portugese Water Dog - arrived from a Texas breeder. Unfortunately, not everyone is in love with this adorable puppy.

The Obamas have welcomed Bo, and controversy, into the White House.

The Obamas chose the hypoallergenic breed due to 10-year-old daughter Malia's allergies; they have also said they plan to make a donation to a local Humane Society.

However, the puppy, which was a gift from Senator Ted Kennedy, was not technically rescued from a shelter. Bo is considered a "second chance" dog because his first home didn't work out; shelter advocates say they had expected more from the President.

"Bo seems like a great dog, but we were all hoping the President would lead by example,” said Kim Saunders, co-founder of the adoption site Petfinder.com.

Did Barack Obama make the right choice for First Dog?
