The Biden Family Has Rehomed Rescue Dog Major, Will Welcome New Puppy & Cat to the White House

There are some new additions to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue!

On Monday (December 20), President Joe Biden announced that his family had adopted a new puppy named Commander.

“Welcome to the White House, Commander,” he tweeted alongside a video of the dog.

Michael LaRosa, a spokesman for First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, told People that Commander is a male, pure-bred German shepherd born in September. He arrived at the White House on Monday afternoon and was a birthday gift from Joe Biden‘s brother James and James‘ wife, Sara.

It was also announced that the Biden family’s other dog, Major, has been rehomed. He had initially left the White House earlier this year after a reported “biting incident.”

Michael said in a statement that the dog would not be returning to live at the White House as the family believes it will be best for the pet in the long run.

“After consulting with dog trainers, animal behaviorists, and veterinarians, the First Family has decided to follow the experts’ collective recommendation that it would be safest for Major to live in a quieter environment with family friends,” he said. “This is not in reaction to any new or specific incident, but rather a decision reached after several months of deliberation as a family and discussions with experts.”

In the final piece of pet-related news, the Bidens are also planning on welcoming a cat, who is currently living with a foster family, to the White House in January.

Earlier this month, there was a bombshell report published about Joe Biden‘s debate against former president Donald Trump. Find out more
