Pol Light Moment #22 is when Roy Blunt adopted a homeless dog. Roy Blunt is a United States Senator representing the State of Missouri. He has served in office from January, 2011 to the present.
The Joplin Human Society reported that Roy Bunt said, "When Abby and I decided to get a new pet for our family, we knew we wanted to rescue a homeless shelter dog (Source)."
On January 21, 2011 Roy Blunt announced on his Facebook Page the following about his adoption, "Picked up our family's new rescue dog this morning. We adopted a male Silky Terrier Mix from Animal Adoption & Resource Center at the Joplin Humane Society (Source)."
The dog was named Max and was given as a gift to Roy Blunt's youngest son Charlie (Source). A photo of Roy Blunt and his new dog is available as an image at stltoday.com or on Roy Blunt's Facebook timeline for January, 2011.
