George W. Bush and wife Laura have added to their family with an adorable new puppy named Freddy!

On Monday, the former president took to Instagram to share a picture of the new addition to the Bush family, including how they met him.

“@laurawbush and I are thrilled to introduce the newest member of our family, Freddy Bush,” he wrote. “We visited the @spcatexas’ Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center last Tuesday to thank them for their great work — and came home with a puppy.”

That’s right. The former commander-in-chief and first lady fell for a puppy, who they gifted with a charming name.


“We already love him, and even our cats Bob and Bernadette are finding Freddy’s charm futile to resist,” Bush continued. “If you could use a little extra joy in your life, consider adopting a pet from an animal shelter or rescue group.”

Freddy isn’t the family’s first dog. The former president and first lady were pet owners to Miss Beazley, a Scottish Terrier that passed away in 2014 from lymphoma, and Barney, also a Scottish Terrier that passed away in 2013, also from lymphoma.

Barney was infamous during the Bush presidency for famously biting a member of the press corps but was cute in a series of White House videos with puppy pal Miss Beazley.
