Theodore Roosevelt

An outdoorsman, Theodore Roosevelt wasn’t shy about having a menagerie of animals running about the White House. He and his six children has a variety of pets, including dogs, guinea pigs, a lizard, a pig, a small bear, a Hyacinth macaw parrot, a one-legged rooster, a hyena, and a Shetland pony named Algonquin.

When the president’s son Archie was still bed-ridden while recovering from measles, his brothers Kermit and Quentin brought the pony up to see him in his room in the White House via the elevator.
