Joe Biden’s German Shepherd To Be First Rescue Dog Living In The White House
Joe Biden winning the presidential election means that he will be living in the White House with his family – and pets.
- The newly elected president will be moving into the White House with his family and his two dogs, Champ and Major, in January.
- The German Shepherd Major will make history as the first rescue dog to live in the presidential home.
- Joe Biden’s other dog Champ has already been in the White House during the Obama administration.
Major is set to make history as the first rescue dog to live in the White House.
For the past four years, the presidential home has been pet-free. However, come January, Joe Biden will be residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with his family and his two German Shepherds, Major and Champ. While Champ has previously visited the White House, Major’s visit is set to make history. That is, even though many presidents and First Families have had pets reside in the White House, Major will be the first animal from a rescue shelter to live there.

Joe and Jill Biden adopted Major from the Delaware Humane Society in 2018.
According to Lad Bible, the couple first fostered Major when their daughter showed them a litter of puppies that needed a temporary home. It was then Joe and Jill Biden decided to adopt Major from the Delaware Humane Society. Champ and Major will be the first dogs to live in the White House since’s Obama’s two Portuguese Water Dogs, Bo and Sunny.
It goes without saying that the staff at the presidential home will be ecstatic to once again have furry friends roaming around.
