The Obamas Close to Decision on 'First Dog'

President-elect Barack Obama has revealed that his family is very close to a big decision. What type of dog will they get to join them in The White House?

Obama tells George Stephanopoulos in an interview with "ABC's This Week" that the girls have shortened the list of choices to two breeds.

"They seem to have narrowed it down to a Labradoodle or a Portugese water hound," Obama says. "So we're now going to start looking at shelters to see when one of those dogs might come up.

Obama also spoke about the girls adjustment to their new schools, which he was pleased to report has been smooth sailing.

"They seemed to thrive," he says. "I'm trying to figure out why it is that they don't seem to be fazed by anything. They just don't seem to be intimidated."

Barack Obama will be sworn in as president on Jan. 20.
