Joe Biden’s dogs, Champ and Major, take social-media by storm

Come January, the White House will once again be a doghouse.

President-elect Joe Biden is returning to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. with two “First Dogs,” who are already building a loyal following on Instagram and Twitter.

“We are the First Dogs of the USA, Champ and Major Biden. You can call us #DOTUS,” reads the bio on an Instagram page for the two German shepherds, already more than 30,000 followers strong. “We love nom noms, snuggles and can’t wait to explore the White House!”

While Champ previously roamed the White House lawn when Biden served as veep under President Obama, Major will be a newcomer — making history as the first rescue dog in the Oval Office.

“Hello America! Hello world! It’s us, Champ and Major. We are the Bidens’ family puppers and First Dogs Elect(s) of USA,” reads the Instagram account’s first post, featuring sweet snaps of the president-elect and First Lady-elect Jill Biden with the pooches. “We want to thank you all for your suppawrt by sharing our pawsidential adventures here! Woof! Woof!”

During his four years in office, President Trump was the first commander-in-chief since the 1800s not to keep pets.

It remains to be seen how Champ and Major will help Biden keep his campaign promise to build bark, er, back better.
