Today, in honor of President’s Day, we have compiled a list of all the pets that have lived in the White House. Each of our Presidents have had at least one pet during their term, with the exception of Chester Arthur, who is the only Commander-in-Chief to never own a pet.

All told, 90 dogs have lived in the White House (to date), along with a number of cats (Lincoln had the first inaugural cat), a few parrots, many horses, and even a badger, bears, an alligator and a wolf.

Without further ado, we introduce you to the Presidential Pets throughout history. Today we will start with Washington and run through Lincoln in honor of Presidents Day. Read Part Two (Presidents Johnson through Truman) and Part Three (President Kennedy through current President Barack Obama).

A golden retriever is being credited with saving the life of an 11-year-old boy from a cougar attack in Boston Bar, B.C. over the weekend.  Police report that the boy was gathering firewood in his yard on Saturday when a cougar charged him.

Angel, the Golden Retriever, began following Austin as he gathered the wood. Austin reports that the dog appeared nervous. When the cougar charged, Angel jumped a lawnmower to intercept the attack as the boy ran indoors to get help.

A Labrador and Shepherd mix puppyThe Labrador & Shepherd Mix is easygoing, dependable, energetic and intelligent - a great pet for families!

Temperament: The Labrador/Shepherd mix is one of the friendliest dogs you can own.  The Labrador influence contributes to the dog’s loyalty, mild temperament, and love of human contact.  The Shepherd influence adds spark to the dog’s personality.  Shepherds are well known for their devotion, love of running, tracking abilities, guarding and herding.  This energy and spunk, mixed with the inherent gentleness of the Labrador, makes Labrador/Shepherd one of the best family dogs to own.  It may take a couple of kids to wear this dog out!

Intelligence: Both Labradors and Shepherds are known for their intelligence, making this combination a great one.  As a result, Labrador/Shepherd mixes are easily trained and enjoy learning new tricks (which is fun for the pet as well as the owner).
