Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) shared news of "a new addition" to her family on her Facebook page Monday, sharing photos of her newest dog, Jill Hadassah.
Palin said the dog was trained by a friend involved with the Puppy Jake Foundation, which prepares dogs to help military veterans and those with special needs. The dog will be a "buddy" to her son Trig, who has Down Syndrome.
"She’s brilliant and beautiful, and we feel very blessed to have her," Palin wrote on her Facebook page.
