Host George Stephanopoulos passed along the question from Obama’s daughters, who were sitting in the control room, ‘What kind of a dog are we getting and when are we getting it?’
Obama replied, “They seem to have narrowed it down to a labradoodle or a Portuguese water hound … medium-sized dog, and so, we’re now going to start looking at shelters to see when one of those dogs might come up.”
“We’re closing in on it. This has been tougher than finding a commerce secretary,” the President-elect said.
Both the Labradoodle, a cross between a Labrador and a Poodle, and the Portugese Water Hound are known for being hypo-allergenic.
