From George Washington to Barack Obama, most of the US Presidents are fond of dogs as they relieve them from stress. George Washington, the country’s first president holds the record for maintaining 30 hounds.
Even Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of United States has maintained two dogs named ‘Fido and Jip’. Of the both, the former dog was brutally killed by a drunken man.
John F. Kennedy created a record by maintaining 14 dogs of different breeds like Poodle, Welsh Terrier, Irish Cocker Spaniel and German Shepherd etc. Its bit surprising that out of 44 presidents nearly 32 presidents have put dogs as their favourite pets. From various dog breeds, the ‘Terriers’ was the most preferred dog breed for first persons of world’s supreme country.
