Two commanders in the White House with Biden’s latest four-legged addition

Politics

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WRIC) — U.S. President and Commander-in-chief Joe Biden announced on Monday afternoon that he got a new dog, appropriately named Commander.

Biden made a welcome to the White House post for the new puppy on his presidential Twitter account on Monday afternoon.

His family’s newest pup bears a strong resemblance to Biden’s dog Champ who died at the age of 13 in June. Champ was a German shepherd.

The Bidens have another German shepherd named Major who has made a few headlines during his time in the White House for two separate biting incidents. In March, Major bit a Secret Service Agent and later that month the dog nipped at someone while on a walk. Biden enrolled Major in off-site training in April.

Major is also the first rescue dog to live in the White House.

With the addition of Commander, the Bidens are back to being a two-dog household.
