New Delhi: With US President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20, an ‘indoguration’ at the White House was held for First Dog-elect Major Biden.
Biden’s inauguration on January 20 would be the first time in four years that the White House would have dogs.
Major, a German Shephard was adopted by the Bidens in 2018. With this move, it would become the first dog from a shelter to live at the White House.

The event was hosted by Today’s’ Jill Martin. The proceeds of this virtual event will be benefitting shelter animals like Major.
Since it was a virtual event, many attended the event and raised as many as USD 100,000 for the nonprofit organisation, as per media reports.
“Ready for #Indoguration,” tweeted Naomi Biden, daughter of the President-elect.
“Major Biden was ‘indogurated’ today, the first shelter animal to live in the WH. My two rescue boys and I send our congratulations and love,” one of the users who attended the indoguration wrote on Twitter.
