ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – Minnesota’s first family now has a first dog. Gov. Tim Walz and his son, Gus, introduced the newest resident of the Governor’s Mansion on Thursday – a 3-month-old black Lab mix named Scout. When Democrat Walz announced his candidacy for governor in 2017, he and his wife, Gwen, promised their son Gus that the family would adopt a dog if Walz won. When Walz won in November, Gus exclaimed: “I get a dog!” Scout is a rescue dog discovered abandoned in Oklahoma.
