DALLAS, Texas (KXAN) — A trip to a Dallas animal shelter left one puppy with a new forever home with the former President George W. Bush and first lady Laura Bush.
According to KXAS, the newest member of the Bush family has been named Freddy. He was rescued from the SCPA shelter.
“Election Day, George and I went to our SPCA in town, and the little puppy called our name. So we have a new little puppy at our house,” said Mrs. Bush to KXAS. “Of course, Barney and Beasley and Spot got old and went on to doggy heaven, so we have a new little puppy named Freddy.”
The former president released this statement following the adoption:
“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.”
