President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama show off their new dog Bo, Tuesday, April 14, 2009, with daughters Malia, right, and Sasha Obama, center, at the White House in Washington.

Bo is a six month old Portuguese water dog and  was given up by his first owner because things weren't working out with the family's other dog. The pup is mostly black, and he has white fur on his chest and front feet. The dog's non-shedding coat also makes him a good pick for the family, given Malia's allergies.
