Hogan, first lady adopt 2 rescue dogs from animal shelter

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Two dogs from a Baltimore animal shelter are soon moving into swanky new digs: The Maryland governor’s mansion.

Gov. Larry Hogan and his wife, Yumi, have adopted a pair of rescued Shih Tzus. The Republican governor and the state’s first lady got the female dog and one of her four puppies on Thursday.

They adopted them at the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter. The mother dog’s other puppies were taken by Hogan’s granddaughter and his press secretary and her family.

The fluffy Shih Tzus were recently brought to the State House when Hogan signed legislation ending puppy mill sales and encouraging adoption.

Hogan says he and his wife are “incredibly excited to be adopting these adorable dogs.”

He’s seeking public input about what to name the pets.
