The Obamas are yet to bring home a new puppy, but the President’s younger daughter Shasha has already chosen a name for the canine member of the first family, April 1st.

The American president and his family had moved into the White House earlier this year and his young daughters have chosen a Portugese Water dog for a pet, reported Giant magazine.

After a long and winding search for a pet, the Obamas settled for the particular breed as per Michelle Obama choice who picked them because “temperamentally they’re supposed to be pretty good.”

Malia and Sasha had earlier come up with the names Moose and Frank, but they were rejected by Michelle as boring and common. Sasha then came up with ‘April 1st´ which was unanimously accepted.
