Joe Biden's German Shepherd will be the first rescue dog to live in the White House

As you may have heard, yesterday (Saturday, November 7), Joe Biden was projected* by news and media outlets across the US to become the next president of the United States.

With this projection comes the assumption that Biden's family will be moving into the White House once he is sworn in as the 46th president of the United States.

And this would further mean that the Biden family's two dogs, Champ and Major, will also be moving into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

As reported by TMZ, Champ's been a part of the Biden family since 2008, and Major joined the clan back in 2018.

The news outlet state that Joe and his wife Jill first fostered Major after their daughter, Ashley, informed them that a new litter of puppies needed a temporary home.

However, Major must have made an impression on the Bidens, as they would eventually adopt him permanently from the Delaware Humane Society.

Much like his adopted brother Champ, Major is believed to be very well trained, as both dogs frequently come into contact with lots of people and travel a lot.

Donald and Melania Trump do not have dogs, but many people may remember the Obamas' two Portuguese Water Dogs, Bo and Sunny.

Per the Associated Press, Biden secured a projected victory* after he was declared the winner in the state of Pennsylvania, pushing the Democratic presidential nominee over the threshold of 270 Electoral College.

As of this writing, CNN reports that Biden has received a recorded-breaking 74,566,732 votes, as Donald Trump trails on 70,396,573 votes.

Biden, 77, will now become the oldest president in the nation's history. The record was previously held by Donald Trump, who is currently 74.

In addition, Biden's running mate Kamala Harris is now projected to become the first Black, Asian, and female vice president in US history.

*Biden has been declared the projected winner of the election by NBCCNN, BBC News, and many others.
