The first family wanted new pup Sunny Obama to be a pal for Bo. But not everyone was 100 percent happy with the choice of the new dog, with some citing millions of shelter dogs that need homes.

The five-year-old Bo wasn’t getting enough doggie interaction, apparently, so a new addition was brought in to amplify the romping level in the Rose Garden. Sunny is 14 months old, was born in Michigan, and arrived at the White House on Monday.
“Sunny is the perfect little sister for Bo – full of energy and very affectionate – and the first family picked her name because it fit her cheerful personality,” said a White House blog post announcing the pet event.
