Dogs are going back to the White House as Joe Biden becomes president-elect

Major Biden will make history as the first rescue dog to occupy the White House when Joe Biden is inaugurated a president in January.

The former vice president adopted Major, a German shepherd, from the Delaware Humane Association in 2018 after fostering the dog.

The humane society, of course, couldn’t be more thrilled.

“First dog elect,” the group posted on social media Saturday after Biden was named president elect.

The kudos poured in for Major’s history-making accomplishment — along with an important message.

Adopt don’t shop.

Major became the fur brother to Champ, the Bidens other German shepherd.

Jill and Joe Biden have had Champ since 2008.

Dogs for Biden — and Demo-cats — really took off during the campaign.

There hasn’t been a dog in the White House during the Donald Trump administration.

Barack Obama, of course, famously had two Portuguese water dogs.

It was a sad day when they took one last walk through the White House.

But soon enough, some four-legged friends will once again become America’s best friends in the White House.
