Winnipeg Shelter has the Perfect Puppy for Obama
The Winnipeg Humane Society has a solution to solve one of the first major dilemmas faced by US President Barack Obama. The shelter is offering a cute and cuddly Labradoodle puppy to the cammander-in-chief and the First Family.
We've all read that his family's choice has now come down to a Portuguese Water Hound or a Labradoodle, and Bill McDonald of the Winnipeg Humane Society spoke on Canada AM this morning of a female labradoodle, which was seized from a puppy mill, having 11 heathy puppies ready to go mid February.
The Humane Society had helped police bust an illegal puppy mill in the city, and had seized 21 Labradoodle puppies and two pregnant females. One of those females, Lilly, has now given birth to a litter of 11 "health, vibrant and rambunctious" puppies.
McDonald thinks one of those puppies would make a perfect addition to the White House. They are now five weeks old and will be ready for adoption in mid-February. "The idea came to me early last week when it was first announced that the new president would make his first official state visit to Canada," he told CTV's Canada AM.
"And I thought well, when a new president comes, Canada always gives a gift on behalf of the people of Canada...and the stars sort of aligned."
