DALLAS (AP) — There’s a new member of the Bush family: a rescue puppy.

George W. Bush says he and his wife, Laura Bush, visited the Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas last week just to thank employees for their work, but they ended up leaving with a puppy.

The former president wrote on Facebook that they named the puppy Freddy, adding that “even our cats Bob and Bernadette are finding Freddy’s charm futile to resist.”

Bush spokesman Freddy Ford tells the Dallas Morning News that the puppy is an Australian Shepherd mix. Ford says the puppy is about 12 weeks old and was among several dogs that were abandoned in southern Dallas last month.

The family’s most famous pet, a Scottish Terrier named Barney, died in 2013.
