President Harry Truman has been credited for saying, "If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog,” but Harry Truman had no particular fondness for dogs. Feller, a cocker spaniel puppy given to President Truman as a gift, became infamous as one of the most unwanted Presidential pets in White House history. When Truman gave the puppy to his doctor, the public was outraged and branded President Truman “anti-canine.” Thousands wrote the President, asking to adopt the pet. The doctor returned the dog, and Feller was exiled to Camp David.
The White House has been the home not just to the Presidents and the First Families, but also to all their family pets. Presidential pets have included barnyard animals, exotic birds, bears, alligators, and domesticated cats and many, many dogs. From FDR's Fala and the Bushes' Barney to the Obamas' Bo and Sunny, some of these pets have themselves become household names across America.
