Move over, Obama and ice cream cones. It looks like Joe Biden’s got a new BFF.
The former Vice President and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, adopted a rescue dog named Major over the weekend after fostering him for some time. The German shepherd puppy and his five siblings were surrendered to the Delaware Humane Association (DHA) by their owners in a bid to save their lives.
The dogs received “life-saving medical care” after being exposed to “something toxic in their home,” a news release from the organization said. Once they were well enough, the pups were fostered out and put up for adoption. Biden, 75, “reached out immediately” about welcoming one of the dogs into his home. After spending time with Major, the Bidens decided to make him a permanent part of their family.
