Democratic candidate Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 US election means something very special for animal lovers – for the first time a rescue dog will call the White House home.
Major is a rescue dog, and Twitter officially dubbed him and his friend Champ “DOTUS” or “Dogs of the United States,” a piece with the official acronym of President POTUS.

The Bidens got Champ as puppies in 2008, while Biden served as Vice-President of the then POTUS Barack Obama.
They adopted Major much later after rescuing him in 2018 after the Delaware Humane Association rescued a sick litter of German Shepherd puppies. Major was one of them.
“We are very pleased to have Major in the Biden family, and we are grateful to the Delaware Humane Association for their work in finding permanent homes for Major and countless other animals,” the Bidens said in a statement at the time.
Major came from “the litter of German Shepherd puppies who surrendered and were not doing well at all,” according to the Delaware Humane Association.
“After we asked for your help, Joe Biden caught wind of them and immediately held out his hand. The rest is history, ”wrote the group on Facebook.
This makes Major the first rescue dog to ever enter the White House.
The White House has been depressingly dogless for the past four years, and Trump didn’t seem like a fan of the canine species.
The Champ and Major can be seen frequently on the Bidens’ social media.
“No blatant days on the trail when I have a great deal of motivation,” wrote Biden in the run-up to the elections.
Part of the Biden’s election campaign revolved around their dogs.
“Let’s bring a dog back to the White House,” were some of his election posts.
Many dog owners were delighted when another dog broke into the presidential suite.
Internet sensation Doug the Pug weighed down the news that Biden would be the next president of the United States.
“There will be dogs again in the White House,” tweeted the account.
