Viral PHOTOS: George W. and Laura Bush Adopted a Shelter Puppy
There's a new addition to the Bush family down in Texas!
The 43rd President of the United States shared on Facebook that he and the former First Lady, Laura Bush, adopted a new dog: Freddy.
"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," he wrote last night.
President Bush joked that their two cats - Bob and Bernadette - are quickly finding Freddy's charm "futile to resist."
He encouraged others to consider adopting a shelter dog or cat to bring a "little extra joy" to your life. The SPCA also shared photos from the Bushes' visit on Facebook.
The Bush family had a dog, Barney, while they were in the White House but the Scottish terrier died in 2013. They had another Scottish terrier, Miss Beazley, until 2014.
