After 4 Years, the White House is Going to Have Dogs Again

With Joe Biden’s monumental victory after a tight presidential race against Donald Trump comes another piece of fantastic news: dogs are coming back to the White House!

President-elect Biden is bringing his two canine companions, German Shepherds Major and Champ, with him to his new home and, by the looks of their faces, these adorable pooches can hardly wait!

Biden and his wife Jill received Champ as a puppy in 2008 when Biden had been serving as vice president. He then adopted Major from the Delaware Humane Association animal shelter in 2018. Although reports say that Major will be making history as the first rescue dog to live in the White House, a news site claimed that it isn’t “entirely accurate” since former President Lyndon B. Johnson, who served from 1963 to 1969, also adopted a stray mutt during his term. Nonetheless, Americans, dog owners, and dog lovers everywhere are very much thrilled to welcome the two First Pets to the office and look forward to witnessing their adventures in the years to come.

It’s been four years since the White House has been without dogs ever since Trump, who didn’t own any, was elected in 2016.

Although vice president-elect Kamala Harris doesn’t own any dogs either, she has made it known that furry friends are always welcome in her office.
