I agree with you 100%. All three of our dogs have been dumped and are mixed breeds. They are loving and faithful. A shelter dog would have been a better choice for the President to have made.

i'm all for adopting shelter dogs...and cats... but the other dogs and cats that are bred purposely... also need to be adopted.... all dogs and cats.. need a loving home..... i have purebreds...i have shelter dogs...& cats... they all need a loving home......
There is no such thing as a hypoallergenic dog. All dogs are individuals and even pure bred dogs come with behavioral and health risks. It would have been a great example for them to rescue but it was ultimately their decision to make.
Shame on anyone negating adopting an animal from a shelter. I'm sure the Obama's with a little research could have found the perfect animal and saved it's life. Shame, Shame, Shame. What are you some kind of an ELITIST, THE ONLY animal that would be good enough for you is some kind of FRU FRU dog to build your ego. You probably dive a big ol Lexus too! SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!
I understand your passion but your response does nothing to educate or change the attitudes of others. It only reinforces the stereotype of the crazy animal activist and strengthens people's opinions.
