It’s no longer politics as usual now that Leaf Anderson, the first cocker spaniel to run for President of the United States, has tossed his neck kerchief into the ring. Dressed in his trademark blue suspenders and Snoopy red tie, he trots along the campaign trail, winning friends and promising universal kibble.

Leaf’s candidacy inspires everyone to adopt pets from animal shelters and rescue groups. Who knew that an abandoned dog with a rough start in life would wake up from one of his many naps and ask his family to help him become a world leader? Only one of the many benefits of adopting a year-old shelter dog.

By running this race with his youthful vigor and enthusiasm, Leaf encourages others to observe the qualities in dogs and make their own nominations for canines who would make great Presidents.

Read the dramatic 24-page booklet with photos, on Leaf's amazing journey to the White House. Leaf Anderson, a rescued dog is and inspiration to authors Allen and Linda Anderson. With a wag of his stumpy tail, Leaf has risen from relative obscurity into the national political spotlight.
