DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – A former first family has welcomed a new family member.
George and Laura Bush adopted a puppy from the SPCA on Election Day.
They named him, Freddy.
The former president released this statement on the new puppy:
“Laura and I are thrilled to introduce the newest member of our family, Freddy Bush. We visited the SPCA of Texas’ Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center last Tuesday to thank them for their great work – and came home with a puppy. We already love him, and even our cats Bob and Bernadette are finding Freddy’s charm futile to resist. If you could use a little extra joy in your life, consider adopting a pet from an animal shelter or rescue group.”
While in the White House, the Bushes had two dogs, Barney and Spot.
