A new puppy has been welcomed to the White House. As reported by CNN, a German shepherd named Commander was gifted to President Joe Biden for his 79th birthday. The puppy, born on September 1, will be the only shepherd residing with the Bidens because Major, the family’s rescued German shepherd, has a new home.

Michael LaRosa, Jill Biden’s press secretary, explained that Major will be living elsewhere following some “aggressive” incidents at the White House.

“After consulting with dog trainers, animal behaviorists, and veterinarians, the first family has decided to follow the experts’ collective recommendation that it would be safest for Major to live in a quieter environment with family friends.”

LaRosa said that the decision to let Major live with another family came after “months of deliberations.”

President Biden introduced the new puppy via Twitter on Monday afternoon, Tweeting:

Meet the newest Biden.

The Biden’s German shepherd, Champ, passed away earlier this year at 13 years of age.
