Nearly every president in U.S. history shared the country’s most famous residence with pets. Just like The Biden family’s two German Shepherds, 12-year old Champ and 2-year old Major will call the famous house home.
Champ is no stranger to a life of politics, having stood by his dad Joe Biden when he served as the nation’s Vice President between 2008 and 2016. A puppy during his early days in One Observatory Circle, Champ’s occasional “accidents” prompted an upgrade from off-white carpeting to hardwood flooring in the vice-presidential residence. But, a life in the spotlight will be new to young Major.
Although many former First Families have rescued dogs, Major will be the first that was adopted from a shelter.
