    His current owner is confident that the Trumps will take the puppy, which she named Patton after George Patton, a World War II general Trump has said he admires.

    Patton, a 9-week-old Goldendoodle may become the nation’s First Dog. The Trump family does not own any animals, which means if Donald Trump moves into the White House, he’ll be the first president in 150 years who does not have a pet.

    Lois Pope philanthropist in Palm Beach, Fla., for veterans’ and animal causes, said in an interview that she is in possession of a 9-week-old golden retriever and poodle mix that will soon become the first dog.

    “He said, ‘Go over there and show it to Barron,’” Pope said, Trump’s 10-year-old son. “He said, ‘He’s going to fall in love with him.’ He said, ‘Barron will want him.’”

    When she showed the photo to Barron, Pope said, “this big smile came over his face, and it just brought tears to his eyes.”

    Meanwhile Donald Trump has been voted TIME magazine’s 2016 Person of the Year. The magazine revealed its choice Wednesday.

    He beat 10 finalists, including Vladimir Putin, Hillary Clinton and Nigel Farage. Last year’s cover was adorned by Angela Merkel, who was called a “woman”, while Trump was called a “person”.

    The president-elect nevertheless complained when the magazine’s refered to him as “President of the Divided States of America”. Trump responded to the accusation by saying he was not responsible. “When you say ‘divided states of America,’ I didn’t divide them. They’re divided now, there’s a lot of division. And we’re going to put it back together.”

    But he did thank the magazine for their choice: “To be on the cover of Time as Person of the Year is a tremendous honor,” Trump told Matt Lauer in an interview.

    This will be Trump’s 10th time on the cover of the same publication since August 2015 apart from the one time, his first appearance in 1989.
