Former President George W. Bush and his wife Laura have announced they have a new edition to their family.

The former Kennebunk Port resident and his family have adopted a new dog.

Bush, on his official facebook page, said:

Laura W. Bush and I are thrilled to introduce the newest member of our family, Freddy Bush. 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. We already love him, and even our cats Bob and Bernadette are finding Freddy’s charm futile to resist. If you could use a little extra joy in your life, consider adopting a pet from an animal shelter or rescue group.
