Former President George W. Bush and his wife, Laura, have a new member of their family. 

In a Facebook post on Monday, the couple announced they adopted a puppy, which they named Freddy Bush. 

“We already love him, and even our cats Bob and Bernadette are finding Freddy’s charm futile to resist,” Bush wrote. 

Bush also advocated for the adoption of dogs from animal shelters. 

“If you could use a little extra joy in your life, consider adopting a pet from an animal shelter or rescue group,” he wrote.
