Biden’s German Shepherd To Be First WH Rescue Dog

People Magazine reports:

Now introducing the First Dog-elects, Major and Champ Biden! For the first time in four years, dogs are heading back to the White House thanks to president-elect Joe Biden, who won the election over Donald Trump on Saturday.

Biden’s German shepherd, Major, will also make history as the first rescue dog to live at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, according to NBC News. The Biden family adopted Major from the Delaware Humane Association in November 2018, 10 years after the couple welcomed their first German shepherd, Champ.

Major, who was fostered by the Bidens before being adopted, was “from the litter of German shepherd pups that were surrendered and not doing well at all,” according to the Delaware Humane Association.
