US President Joe Biden (79) has taken in a new dog in the White House. Biden introduced the puppy “Commander” on Monday with a photo and a short video on Twitter. According to media reports, the shepherd dog is said to be a gift from the family. Biden greeted him with the words “Welcome to the White House”. The released video clip shows the President throwing a ball and “Commander” dashing after it.
Joe Biden had brought his two German Shepherds, Major and Champ, to the White House after taking office. In the summer, the US president mourned the death of Champ. Major, on the other hand, made headlines because of incidents with White House employees – among other things, he is said to be a member Bidens Security team have bitten. The dog now lives mainly in the family home in Wilmington.
First Lady Jill Biden announced in the spring that a cat would soon be moving into the White House. A spokeswoman told CNN that it should be so far in January.
