Donald Trump Adopts Shelter Dog

On Friday, October 6 2017, Donald Trump joins many presidents in adopting his first puppy to inhabit the White House.

Trump, a huge fan of man’s best friend, adopted Trixie. Trixie is a shelter dog and was given to the president as a gift by Governor Tim Scott.

“Every American president should have a good dog,” Scott said. “It was just a matter of time until Trump took the step to reach out to me to get one. I’m a dog lover myself.”

This is Trump’s 5th dog throughout his life. His first puppy was at the age of 8. His name was Rex and was a Spanish Terrier. Rex was Donald’s best friend until he left for college at the prestigious Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

Ivanka, Eric and Don Jr. all grew up with their own puppy. But Baron has yet to have his own. So the president fixed that.

“When I was a young boy my puppy was very special to me,” President Donald J. Trump said. “You should have seen [Baron’s] face. It lit right up.”
