The Bidens own a German Shepherd dog who has been living with them ever since they started living. Usually pet dogs don’t tend to be aggressive, but their dog has been biting people left and right in the White House. So It’s very much out with the old and in with the new, as President Joe Biden’s dog Major is getting the boot from the White House.
The White House just announced POTUS’ German Shepherd will “live in a quieter environment with family friends” with the Bidens making the move after consulting with dog trainers, animal behaviorists and veterinarians. Major was involved in 2 biting incidents at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. The first one in March getting him and his late pal, Champ, sent back to Delaware.
Major eventually returned from the dog house. Sadly, there was another biting incident at the White House only days after his return. This resulted in a new trainer and some extra dog handlers.
Joe and Jill Biden have a new puppy at The White House, a new German Shepherd puppy named Commander. He arrived as an early Christmas present. So, that’s one dog out and one dog in. The First Lady said earlier this year the family would soon be adding a cat to the fold, but there is no sign yet of the new feline thus far.
The President and First Lady brought along their two dogs, Champ and Major, when they moved into the White House in January. It marked the first time in four years that a pet had lived at the presidential residence and the very first time a rescue dog called 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue home. The Bidens adopted Major from the Delaware Humane Association in 2018.
Hopefully, Commander would have a much better repertoire in the White House. The Bidens clearly adore him and are excited at his arrival. We will see how this canine gets along everyone.
