Joe Biden’s Dog Will Get ‘Indoguration’ As White House’s First Rescue Dog

A special ceremony will be held to celebrate the arrival of the first ever rescue dog in the White House.

President-elect Joe Biden will be inaugurated on 20th January, bringing his gorgeous pet pooches Champ and Major with him.

Major was adopted by the Biden family in 2018 from the Delaware Humane Association (DHA), and now the rescue centre is planning a special 'indoguration' to mark the German Shepherd's historic move.


Titled 'the world's largest virtual party for dogs', the indoguration, which will be held over Zoom, will be raising money for the shelter.

A post about the event on the DHA Facebook page read: "We've got big, happy news to round out your week!!!

"Delaware Humane Association & Pumpkin Petcare invite you & your pup to the world's largest virtual party for dogs in honour of Major Biden's Indoguration!

"Zoom in with our host, the Today Show's Jill Martin, and special guest Beaux and Paws by Sir Darius Brown on Sunday, January 17 at 3pm EST.


"Let's celebrate the first-ever shelter pup to become First Dog and raise $$$ to help more shelter animals like Major live the American Dream! All donations support us at DHA directly!"

It will be a welcome return for pets in the White House, with Donald Trump not owning any furry friends during his time in power.

Barack Obama owned two Portuguese Water Dogs during his time in office, with the adorable pups called Bo and Sunny.

Biden's inauguration will be a historic time for US politics, with his running mate, Kamala Harris, becoming the first female Vice President.

When she announced as Vice President-elect, Kamala said in her speech that while she may be the first woman to hold high office, "I will not be the last."

In other news, Trump has confirmed he will not be attending the inauguration after he was banned permanently from a number of social media website.


The outgoing president is facing possible impeachment after he was accused of using his Twitter account to incite violence, as a number of his supporters stormed The Capitol last week.
