Does Ted Cruz Have Any Pets?

Snowflake (Dog)

Breed: Poodle

Texas Senator Ted Cruz has one rescue dog, a poodle named Snowflake. Snowflake made headlines in February 2021 when Cruz and his family left Texas during a statewide emergency due to a storm leaving millions without power for a Cancun vacation. While on vacation, Journalist Michael Hardy drove by the Cruz home and noticed their poodle Snowflake peering out the front door. He took a photo and wrote a New York Mag article about how Ted Cruz left his dog home alone without electricity while on vacation. Cruz’s press secretary later commented that Snowflake had a caretaker in the house.
