The First Dog: Coming Soon!

The Obama's have finally decided what kind of dog they're going to get, and when they're going to get it.

Michelle told PEOPLE that the family is looking for a rescue Portuguese Water dog who is "old enough" and a "match" for the family dynamic.

"Temperamentally they're supposed to be pretty good," she said. "From the size perspective, they're sort of middle of the road – it's not small, but it's not a huge dog. And the folks that we know who own them have raved about them. So that's where we're leaning."

And, the First Dog will be living the high life at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue sooner rather than later. The Obama's plan to get the dog in April, when Malia and Sasha are on Spring Break!

The only thing left to decide is the name, and that's up to the girls.
