Delaware’s first family has a new member of the household and her name is “Rue.” Rue is a playful, three-month old puppy with some pretty big paws.


The Governor is teaching Rue to fetch. Her name comes from a character in the movie, “The Hunger Games.” The puppy is possibly part Shepherd, Boxer and Lab, and was adopted from the Delaware Humane Association.

Rue the dog joins pets Belle the cat and Norma the goldfish in the Markell household.
