PLEASE CHECK OUT MY PRESS RELEASE ABOUT "EVERY RESCUED DOG HAS A TALE"
I am very disheartened by the news that the Obamas did not follow through on their promise to adopt a "shelter dog" and get a "mutt like me". They too have adopted a pure bred dog from a breeder, just like Joe Biden did. I was so hoping that this administration would not continue the lies to the public. We were led on, time and time again by President Obama when he was a candidate and even since the election that he would NOT go to a breeder.
What message did this send to all the shelters around the country? I feel so bad for them. And regardless of what you will hear on the morning news show, there ARE indeed Portuguese Water Spaniels in shelters, even puppies, available. There is no excuse for lying to the public to get the votes of the dog lovers in this country and I will not forget it. In the whole scheme of things I know it is a LITTLE thing, but not really. It speaks to his character and we have had enough leaders with no character in the past 20 years to last a lifetime. He had a chance to make a difference in the way people view shelters dogs as valuable or "damaged" and he blew it. If this matters to you as much as it does to me, do not hesitate to let the President know about it at the whitehouse.gov website.
SO if YOU are looking for a BEST FRIEND, don't do what the Obamas and the Bidens did. Go to a local shelter and save TWO lives...the one you take home with you and the one who will take his place at the shelter and get off the street.
DO THE RIGHT THING.
