The Palin family is adding a new member to the mix — a dog that has not one name, but two.
Jill Hadassah is joining Sarah Palin and her clan, the former Alaska governor announced in a Facebook post on Monday.
The Puppy Jake Foundation trains service dogs to help wounded veterans, along with families with special needs. Palin says Jill Hadassah has been trained to be a “buddy” to her 6-year-old son, Trig, who has Down syndrome.
Photos accompanying the Facebook post show the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate smiling as she hugs the black canine.
No word on the inspiration for Jill Haddasah’s name.
