 How much do American presidents love dogs?

After several days of voting, the overall situation for the 2020 US presidential election seems to be set. According to many media reports in the United States, Biden took the lead with 270 votes and is about to become the next new owner of the White House.


Regarding the new owner of the White House, one of the most concerned questions of the American people turned out to be-"Does Biden have a dog?"


The United States is a large dog-raising country. According to statistics, there are nearly 70 million pets in the United States, with an average of 1.7 pets per household. 

Generally speaking, anyone who has a house in the United States will keep a dog.


They believe that keeping a dog can not only help people reduce stress, but also promote human society. 

Keeping a dog is regarded as a manifestation of love, responsibility and affinity, and can add points to the master, and the president is no exception.


As a result, dogs have almost become the standard equipment for the owners of the White House, and the White House even has a special website to commemorate these "first dogs of the White House."


1. Former US President Truman once said: "If you want to have a friend in Washington, you have a dog."


Bush also said: "If you need a friend in this intriguing society, then get a dog."


On November 30, 2018, Bush, the 41st President of the United States, passed away due to illness. 

During his funeral, his beloved dog lay in front of Bush's coffin and refused to leave for a long time.


Its sad look moved the world, and people were moved by its loyalty.


In 2012, Bush Sr. suffered from vascular Parkinson's syndrome and was in a wheelchair with limited mobility. 

In April 2018, after his wife Barbara passed away, Bush's health went from bad to worse. In addition, he fell and couldn't take care of himself.


In June 2018, a service dog named "Sally" came to him to take care of his daily life.


Sally is a professionally trained service dog responsible for caring for disabled soldiers. 

It can open doors, fetch things, answer the phone, and knows to press the emergency button for help, and act as a "crutch" when Bush Sr. wants to stand up.


In this way, Bush passed away after being taken care of by Sally for 6 months.


Sally’s social platform updated the last photo, which read: "Mission completed."


After learning this story, countless people were moved to tears.

The dog's love is deep, and the emotions and bonds between the dog and the owner are always moving.


Almost all U.S. presidents for a century have brought their dogs into the White House.


Although Sally was raised by Bush Sr. after leaving office and failed to move into the White House, Bush Sr. had two dogs during his stay in the White House.

In his free time, Bush would take them for a walk; when he was busy, the dog would lie down at the desk and play ball, looking like a peaceful year.


Next, let’s take a closer look at the “top dogs in the White House” with the editor.


In 1906, Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th President of the United States, played with his pet dog in the White House.


In 1929, Harding, the 29th President of the United States, was on the balcony of the White House with his pet dog "Boy".


Coolidge, the 30th president of the United States, also has two pet dogs, one white shepherd dog named "Rob Roy" and the other Chow Chow named "Tim".

The 31st President Hoover, his pet dog was called "King Tutt"

Franklin Roosevelt, the 32nd President of the United States, loved dogs like his life.


It is said that during a visit, Roosevelt accidentally dropped his pet dog "Fara" on the Aleutian Islands in Alaska. 

In order to retrieve Fara, he even ordered a destroyer to be sent to rescue him.

Roosevelt and Farah went with him, and even the bronze statue that people later erected for him also had a little Farah next to him.

The cute little guy below is the pet dog "Feller" of Truman, the 33rd President of the United States.


Eisenhower, the 34th President of the United States, raised a Weimaraner named "Haidi".


The 35th President Kennedy loves dogs even more, raising a total of 6.

Lyndon Johnson, the 36th President of the United States, has a dog named "Yuqi". Elderly people often play with their grandchildren and pet dogs while handling official duties and enjoying family happiness.

The 37th President of the United States Nixon and his wife had several dogs.

Among them was a Cocker Spaniel named "Checkers", which was given to him by his supporters.

On September 23, 1952, when Nixon was a candidate for vice president, he gave a speech that decided his career. That speech was named after his pet dog "Checkers", which shows how much he loved it.


Ford, the 38th President of the United States, his big golden retriever "Freedom" was very honored to give birth to a litter of puppies in the White House.

Carter, the 39th President of the United States, has a Springer Spaniel. This is a gift from his daughter Amy's teacher after they moved into the White House.

The 40th President of the United States, Ronald Reagan, his mixed-breed collie was called "Lucky" and often accompanied him.


Clinton, the 42nd President of the United States, has a Labrador "Buddy" and a cat "Sock".

A cat and a dog often play on the grass of the White House, and they are also loved by Hillary.


The 43rd President of the United States Bush Jr. has two Scottish purebred dogs named "Barney" and "Miss Beazley".


The two dogs like to chase and fight on the lawn, and they are also intimate with the president and his wife.

By the 44th President Barack Obama, their family did not have a dog because the eldest daughter Maria is allergic to dogs.


After entering the White House, in order to continue the dog-raising tradition of the White House owners, the Obama family spent several months observing various dogs, and finally chose two Portuguese dogs-"Bo" and "Sony".


"Sonny" was also selected as one of the top ten most influential animals of 2013 by Time magazine.




2. There are always exceptions. The 45th President Trump is the maverick.

 Trump once said, "I don't mind raising a dog, but I don't have time to spend time with it. What do you think it would be like to walk my dog ​​on the White House lawn? Is this right?" 

Then he shook his head and put out an iconic Disdain expression.


He also told the truth. Although many people suggested that he raise a dog because it was "conducive to political image," he "has no time" and "feels fake."


With this self-willedness, Trump has also become the first president of the United States who has not raised a dog in the White House in the past 120 years. This is often made a big fuss by Biden.


Therefore, after the election, Biden answered on the website a question that the American people are very concerned about-he will lead his two pet dogs "major" and "champion" to move into the White House, of which the "major" will also become the first to live in the White House A rescue dog.

The Bidens have two dogs, one is called "Major" and the other is called "Champ".


In 2018, Biden and his wife Jill met the rescue dog Major at the Humane Society of Delaware.


After going to the association to take care of him for a while, the couple fell in love with the major and decided to adopt him.

"Champion" is a German Shepherd, which was purchased by the Bidens from a commercial breeder as early as 2008.

He named it Champion because Biden's father told him when his life was full of challenges, "Stand up, champion!"


The major and the champion have become close friends. They always follow Biden or his wife Jill in the public eye from time to time. Biden will often post pictures of two dogs on social networking sites.


When the results of the general election came out, the Bidens opened a Twitter account for the dogs and named them "The First Dog Champion and Major Biden."


The account greeted everyone with a dog's tone:

Friends, do you know? My brother champion is the first rescue dog to live in the White House! We are so excited to be able to explore the West Building of the White House together and play in the Rose Garden together!

In fact, early in the campaign, Biden used dogs to canvass votes.


On his social networking site Instagram, there is a short video canvassing votes. In the video, there are multiple dogs wearing Biden cheering clothes or cheering scarves. 

At the end of the video, there is a photo of the Biden couple and their dogs. It says "Let the dog go back to the White House".

I don’t know if this trick played a role in Biden’s victory, but at least, emotionally, Americans bought it.


American netizens praised Biden's dog raising.


The dog beside Biden looked confident and proud.

There is hope for Biden to promote legislation prohibiting cruelty to animals.

Can't believe that a president will not raise a dog ( satire of Trump)




The major and the champion are beautiful. Has anyone opened Facebook and Twitter accounts for them? They should have one. ( already have)

Now I know why I like Biden so much! I am very happy that Biden is an animal lover!


The president's dog keeping has obviously been linked to love, sense of responsibility and even governing ideas.


Now that the White House is finally about to usher in a dog that has gone four years ago, it is no wonder the crowd is cheering.
