Among the many grand traditions of the White House, one of them is furry, four-legged, and has a reputation as “man’s best friend”. Out of the USA’s 45 presidents to date, 32 of them apparently agreed on one thing – their preference of pet, each having at least one dog in the West Wing. This easily makes dogs the most popular president’s pet. The first to have a dog during his presidency was George Washington, and the last was Barack Obama, who had two dogs. When President Donald Trump and first lady Melania moved into the White House, they became the most recent first family to not have a dog since William McKinley more than 100 years ago. But president-elect Joe Biden is poised to reset the tradition of dogs in the executive mansion. One of Biden’s German shepherds, Major, will be making history as the first shelter dog to live in the White House. He’ll be following in the footsteps of Biden’s other dog, Champ, who spent eight years in the former vice-president’s residence at the Naval Observatory in Washington. Here are of some of the most adorable and well-known canines to grace the Oval Office. Which celebrities voted for Joe Biden, and who stuck with Donald Trump? Herbert Hoover had a Belgian shepherd named King Tut, who would patrol the gates of the White House on a nightly basis. He also helped Hoover get elected, appearing in a campaign photo. Franklin Roosevelt’s German shepherd, Major, used to chase the White House maids around. Roosevelt also had a Scottish terrier named Fala that would often accompany the president on his travels. Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev gave John F. Kennedy a dog named Pushinka as a gift. Other than Pushinka, JFK had 11 dogs, including his German shepherd named Clipper. Lyndon B. Johnson frequently pulled the long ears of his two beagles, Him and Her. 16 artists who told Trump to stop playing their music at campaign events Two of Johnson’s other beagles, named Kim and Freckles, were given to his daughter Luci. His fifth dog, a terrier mix named Yuki, was found at a Texas gas station on Thanksgiving in 1966. Bill Clinton named his chocolate Labrador retriever Buddy after his great-uncle. George W. Bush’s first dog in the White House was an English springer spaniel named Spot, one of the puppies of his father’s dog Millie. Bush also had two Scottish terriers named Barney and Miss Beazley, who were separated in age by four years. The Obamas had two famous Portuguese water dogs named Bo and Sunny. 5 (not so) strange things Millie Bobby Brown splurges on They were so popular that they apparently had official White House schedules for all of their appearances. Bo often exercised and played with the president. Donald Trump bucked White House tradition when he went four years in office without a dog. Trump told a crowd in February 2018 that though he “wouldn't mind having one”, he doesn’t have any time, and getting a dog to improve his image would feel “a little phoney”. When Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden was projected to win the 2020 election, dog-lovers noticed that Major would be the first shelter dog in the White House. The Bidens adopted Major in November 2018, and he joined Champ as the family’s second German shepherd. Major was the last rank Biden’s son Beau held in the Delaware Army National Corps before he died from a brain tumour in 2015. 5 other times Hunter Biden’s controversies plagued his dad The family has long been dog-lovers. When she was the second lady, Jill Biden created the Family Heritage Garden at the vice-president’s residence, which memorialises all past residents and their dogs on stone pavers.
