Hey Obama, you CAN adopt a labradoodle!

Suzy the labradoodle is waiting for her forever home at Animal Rescue League in Marshalltown, IA.

This whole Obama-dog story is really taking off like crazy. The president-elect told reporters today, according to the Associated Press:

We have two criteria that have to be reconciled. One is that Malia is allergic so it has to be hypoallergenic. …

But obviously, a lot of shelter dogs are mutts like me. So
whether we’re going to be able to balance those two things, I think, is
a pressing issue on the Obama household.

Well we want the president elect to know that it’s easy to balance those two things: More than 25% of shelter pets are purebred — and it’s easy to find the breed you want on Petfinder!

To contact Obama and urge him to adopt, you can write to him at his Chicago office at:

John C. Kluczynski Federal Office Building

230 South Dearborn St.

Suite 3900 (39th floor)

Chicago, Illinois 60604

Or e-mail him through the online form at http://www.change.gov/page/s/yourvision.
