Meet George W. Bush's newest family member

- Former President George W. Bush shared a picture of his family’s newest furry member he adopted from an animal shelter.

The Dallas native posted the news about his new Australian Shepard mix on Facebook late Monday afternoon:

“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.”

Bush also encouraged other people to adopt pets from local animal shelters or rescue groups for "a little extra joy in life."
