According to the report of NPR and MarketWatch on the 13th, U.S. President-elect Biden will attend the inauguration ceremony on January 20, after the Biden family’s shepherd “major” will attend the online dog “inauguration ceremony” on January 17.
It is reported that the “inauguration ceremony” of the “major” is scheduled for 3:00 p.m. local time on the 17th, three days before Biden takes office. The event will be held online and hosted by Jill Martin, the host of The Today Show.
The report said that “Major” will soon become the first shepherd dog to go from the shelter to the White House. In early 2018, the Delaware Humane Society shelter received a litter of six German Shepherd puppies, including “Major”.
In November 2018, Biden officially adopted “Majors”. NPR said that “major” will not be the only dog in the White House, and the Bidens also have a shepherd dog named “Champion”.
The report also mentioned that the current president Trump family is the first president without pets in more than 100 years.
