This year’s election created a lot of strain in America. Well, that, and everything else. It’s clear that a vote for Biden was mostly a vote for the lesser of two evils. But whether you agree with that or not, there is one thing Biden has that can bring us all together—his lovable pups Champ and Major.
The White House has been void of animals during Donald Trump’s administration. He was the first president since James K. Polk not to bring pets into the White House. What exactly does that say about Trump? There are plenty of theories. But President-elect Joe Biden isn’t just bringing his faithful buddy Champ, who was in the White House before during Obama’s presidency—he’s also bringing his newest best friend, Major.
Major will be the first rescue dog to be America’s first dog. The Bidens adopted him in 2018 from the Delaware Humane Association after a short fostering period. Both German Shepherds, Major and Champ are the sweet puppy love relief this nation needs. We’ve gathered below our favorite posts of the POTUS-elect’s pups and we hope you’re excited about these first dogs as much as we are.
