'In-your-face' first pooch


POSTED: Tuesday, April 14, 2009

Trend-seekers beware: If you think it would be great to pick up a puppy like Bo, the Obama family's new Portuguese water dog, think again.

The dog's breeder, Martha Stern of Boyd, Texas, says they aren't for everyone. Stern says they tend to be high-energy “;in-your-face”; dogs. And, she says, their curly coats require a lot of maintenance. Vote wisely.
