Joe Biden’s German Shepherd – the first rescue dog to live in the White House

Joe Biden, the US new elected president will carry on the tradition of having furry companion in the White House. More than that, once the new president and his family will move in, we’ll have the first rescue dog to live in the White House.

Biden and his wife Jill have two lovely pups, Major and Champ. While they have raised Champ since 2008 (only a puppy back then), the Bidens adopted Major two years ago. They initially fostered the German Shepherd, after daughter’s Ashley insistence. But they fell in love with the clever rescue puppy and eventually decided to offer him a forever home.

“We are so happy to welcome Major to the Biden family, and we are grateful to the Delaware Humane Association for their work in finding forever homes for Major and countless other animals,” Joe Biden said during a statement.

Therefore, dogs will get back to the White House after four years of absence as President Trump was the the first president in the US history to not have a furry companion.
