Shelter asks Obama to adopt a poi dog

A local pet shelter is lobbying President-elect Barack Obama to adopt a pooch from Hawaii when he visits the Islands in December.

In a letter to Obama, the Hawaii Island Humane Society penned a message from a dog looking for a home.

"I am a pound puppy, a pretty pooch, a poi dog extraordinaire.

"So maybe when you're in Hawaii in December, you could come by and visit me?" said the letter from a dog named Makana.

April Erenberg, the owner of a dog rescue program called Pug Rescue of Hawaii, said pugs are loyal and protective.

"Call me," she said. "I have a million."
