Bo and Sunny Obama

The presidential pets

Bo and Sunny bios

Bo (born Oct. 9, 2008) is a pet dog of the Obama family, the first family of the United States. Bo is a neutered male Portuguese Water Dog. President Barack Obama and his family were given the dog as a gift after months of speculation about the breed and identity of their future pet. The final choice was made in part because Malia Obama's allergies dictated a need for a hypoallergenic breed. Bo has occasionally been called "First Dog.” In August 2013 Bo was joined by Sunny, a female dog of the same breed.

Sunny (born June 11, 2012) was introduced via first lady Michelle Obama's Twitter account on Aug. 19, 2013. (Source: Wikipedia. Click here to see the complete Wikipedia entries for Bo and Sunny.)
