PERU(RushPRnews)14/11/08–After Barack Obama announced that he was looking for a suitable dog breed for Americaâ€™s latest â€˜First Dogâ€™, speculation on the breed has been rife. Dogs have always played a vital role in the office of the president of the United State of America, and Obama doesnâ€™t want his term of office to be any different.
The problem is that one of his two daughters, ten-year-old Malia, has allergies, meaning that she canâ€™t be around most dog breeds. However, hairless or non-shedding dogs would be suitable for her. With that in mind, Peru has offered the latest US president a dog native to South America, A Peruvian Hairless Dog.
Claudia Galvez, the head of the Peruâ€™s Friends of the Hairless Dog Association, claims that the dog is perfect for Barack Obama and his family as it doesnâ€™t have any hair to shed. A letter was sent to the US embassy in Lima, asking if Barack Obama would consider adopting â€˜Earsâ€™, a four-month-old Peruvian Hairless Dog, to be his First Dog.
Ms Galvez stated:
They do not cause any type of allergy and are very friendly and sweet.
We want to give a male puppy to Obamaâ€™s daughters, so they get to experience all the joys of having a dog but without any allergies.
The dog breed is said to date back 3,000 years, and was reportedly once favoured by Inca rulers.
