'Dogs for Donald' give Trump more political bite
WEST PALM BEACH (CBS12) —
The presidential election is going to the dogs, so to speak.
A local entrepreneur is trying to help Donald trump get a leg up on the competition.
You may notice pooches around Palm Beach wearing pins. It's all part of campaign to fetch support for the GOP front-runner and it's called "Dogs for Donald."
"Everybody is warmed by the idea of dogs getting involved in our election and I think it's time for us all to get involved this year," said Arthur Benjamin, Delray resident and founder of American Dog Rescue.
Benjamin says he was on a walk with his Shih Tzu named Bandit when he dug up the idea for "Dogs for Donald."
"Bandit, my service dog, and I have lots of conversations and he's been over to Mar-a-Lago many times and he likes Donald and he thinks Donald is an incredibly human guy that it doesn't always come across."
Benjamin is now handing out buttons that feature a photo OF Trump and bandit. Benjamin hopes the image will help soften Trumps bark.
"Getting the dogs to play. It will get the message out," said Autumn Gill, A local dog owner.
Thousands of pet owners have already registered on dogsfordonald.com in order give their dogs a voice.
Benjamin says the website is just place to show support and enjoy a doggone good laugh.
