The Obama family has narrowed their choice for First Dog to two breeds - a Labradoodle, a cross between a Lab and a poodle, and Portugese water dog, writes the NY Daily News. But will the First Family still be able to keep the promise to adopt from a shelter? A peek on shows only 10 Portugese Water dogs in the whole country, and most of them are mixed. Of the more than 18,000 labradors in shelters, it's likely many are a mix between a lab and a poodle.

So how to solve the ruf dilemma: How about a mix of a Portugese water dog and a Lab? Check out Gus, who's up for adoption at the Angels in Fur Dog Rescue, in Grenada Hills, CA.
Or Blackie - a mix between a Portugese water dog and a poodle.  She's 3 years old and looks like a labradoodle.   Either could be a good fit for Malia and Sasha.
