Joe Biden promises to bring many things back to America now that he’s in and President Donald Trump’s out. Unity, accountability, compassion — and a dog in the White House.

Not just one, but two German shepherds, one a rescue.

One is Champ, who has been with the Bidens since 2008. The other is Major, who the Bidens fostered and then adopted in 2018.

Canines sniffing around the lawns of the presidential mansion are a long-standing staple in America.

Barack Obama muzzled playfully with one Bo, a black Portuguese water dog. George W. Bush had a Scottish terrier, Barney. Bill Clinton? A chocolate Labrador retriever called Buddy.

Enter Trump, a famously finicky germophobe, and the first president in over a century to not have a dog.

“How would I look walking a dog on the White House lawn,” Trump asked, with a grimace, in a video included in a Biden campaign ad.

Now, make way for team Biden’s canine crew.

Biden officials say Major will become the first rescue dog to live in the White House.

“Choose your humans wisely,” says the Biden ad about presidential pooches.
