As the quest for the First Dog continues, Academy Award-winner Jamie Foxx thinks he’s come up with the perfect solution for the President-elect and his family.

“A pitbull,” the entertainer said. “(I’m) trying to pick out Barack Obama’s Christmas puppy right now, so we’re working hard on that. I think I’m going to get him a pitbull, we just got to keep it street.”

Foxx made the comments after performing at the annual Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting in New York last week.

“I’m just celebrating Barack Obama (and) celebrating the new president,” he said.
