US: Joe Biden adopted a German shepherd and he’s precious


Joe Biden just welcomed a majorly cute addition to his family — a German shepherd named Major.

On Saturday, the former Vice President and his wife Jill officially adopted Major the rescue dog, who they’ve been fostering, from the Delaware Humane Association in Wilmington, Delaware.

“We are so happy to welcome Major to the Biden family, and we are grateful to the Delaware Humane Association for their work in finding forever homes for Major and countless other animals,” the Bidens said in a statement that the shelter shared to Facebook.

According to the Delaware Humane Association, Major was one of six puppies brought to the shelter “after being exposed to something toxic in their home.” Their original owner was unable to afford proper veterinary care, so they began looking for loving homes.

After sharing the pup’s stories on social media, Biden reportedly reached out to show interest, and that’s how he fell in love with Major.

The DHA shared several photos of the former VP making the adoption official on Facebook, including one of Biden showing Major a picture of himself as a puppy. 😭 DHA also shared a photo and video of the two leaving the shelter.

From the looks of it, Major seems right at home with Biden and has quite the support team back at the shelter.

Here’s hoping he’ll get to play with Bo and Sunny Obama soon.
