Obama Family Offered A Peruvian Hairless Dog

Of all pets, the Obama family may consider a Peruvian Hairless Dog to parade around the White House.

Last week Obama promised his children they would be getting a new dog, his criteria being that it was allergy-free and, as Obama himself said, "a mutt, like me."

Since his daughter Malia is allergic to dogs, the ugly naked canine came into question. You have to admit, a Peruvian hairless dog is not exactly what one pictures as a country’s leading canine.

Peru generously offered a four-month old Peruvian hairless dog named ‘Machu Picchu’ (nickname ‘Ears’) to Obama and his family, so would declining the offer for the atrocious, naked pup be offensive? Hopefully not.

"Yahoo! searches on ‘list of hypoallergenic dogs’ surged over 3,000% as the curious researched on their own," YahooBuzz says. "Lookups on ‘goldendoodle,’ another low-allergy breed, increased 200%, as well as searches on ‘obama goldendoodle’ and ‘goldendoodle rescue.’"

Whatever dog they choose, it’s certain to become one of the most in-demand dog breeds of 2009! Stats for Presidential Canines Trending: Older & Buzzing
