Question by No Shortage: Why is the Human Society upset over the Obamas’ choice of a puppy for their girls?
The animal rights people wanted the president to adopt a shelter dog, but Malia Obama has allergies so they had to be very careful in choosing a breed. They received a Portuguese Water Dog as a gift, a non-shedding breed which should not bother Malia. Here is the official statement from the president of the Human Society of the United States:

“Clearly our best hope was that [the president] would go to a shelter or a breed-rescue group,” said Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States. “He didn’t do that, but he also didn’t go to a pet store or puppy mill either. It’s a gray area.”

Pacelle said his organization notified the White House about several Portuguese water puppies during the First Family’s search.

“He had no shortage of options,” Pacelle said.”

Don’t Barack and Michelle, as American citizens living in a free society, have a right to choose their own puppy, whether it satisfies the agenda of the animal rights activists or not?
