US Elections 2020: Meet Major and Champ, the future first dogs of America
New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: United States President-elect Joe Biden and his wife Jill Biden will bring two German Shephards — Major and Champ — to live with them in the White House in January 2021, making the first time that a rescued dog will cavort on the lawns of the famous Washington DC address.
The tradition of brining pets to the White House goes back to George Washington, who was the first US President to own a dog. The White House then remained pet-free fo four years during the Presidency of Republican Donald Trump.
Social media handle ‘WeRateDogs’ shared the images of Biden’s dogs on Twitter and wrote, “This is Major and Champ. They are the dogs of @JoeBiden and @DrBiden. Champ has already been to the White House, but Major hasn’t yet. Champ can’t wait to show him around. Both 14/10 would be an honor to pet.”
