Shelter Dog in the White House

Screen Shot 2020-11-17 at 12.54.47 PMRegardless of your political persuasion, as a dog lover you will likely be happy to learn that, after President-elect Joe Biden is inaugurated on January 20, two German shepherds, Champ, 12 and Major, 2, will occupy the White House. According to MarketWatch, Major, "whom the Bidens adopted from the Delaware Humane Association in 2018 after fostering him for several months, will be the first rescue dog from an animal shelter to live in the White House."

The ASPCA is all for it. Matt Bershadker, ASPCA CEO and president, says, "We're thrilled the Bidens' dog Major will be the first shelter dog ever to call the White House his home. This is a wonderful opportunity for people to see how fostering and adopting animals saves lives, helps animal shelters, and brings love and joy to families."

Obviously rescue pets have taken the nation by the storm, especially during the pandemic -- they were named TIME magazine's "2020 Pet of the Year"!
