Presidential Pet Figurine: Fala
- Approximately 1 ¾ X 1 ½ inches
- Hand crafted and hand painted
- Not recommended for children under 3 years
FDR’s constant companion, beloved pooch Fala was instrumental in the success of the president’s fourth term election campaign. In speaking to attacks made by his opponents, Roosevelt defended his little dog, helping to turn opinion and see him reelected.
Hand crafted and hand painted, this lovely miniature figurine version of the Scottish terrier captures fine details of Fala. It makes the perfect gift and is a delightful addition to any collection.
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, 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.
