New White House rescue dog has something in common with these Johnson County pets

In celebration of President Biden's "In-dog-uration Day," the Shawnee Mission Post is featuring rescue pets owned by local councilmembers and school board members. Above, meet Fairway Councilmember Tanya Keys' rescue dog Ruger.

President Joe Biden has brought a rescue dog to the White House. But the nation’s 46th president isn’t the only elected official with a rescue.

In honor of this week’s … ahem, “In-dog-uration,”  the Shawnee Mission Post reached out to some local leaders for images of their rescues. It turns out, it’s kind of a trend in our area among elected officials and has been for a while.
