He was “indogurated” by the organization last month and has become the first rescue dog to ever reside in the White House."Major Biden’s journey from the Delaware Humane Association to the Biden family and now to the White House illustrates Puppy Bowl’s message of how a shelter animal’s life can be transformed when given a second chance in a loving, forever home," a press release promoting the PSA stated.
The Puppy Bowl will stream Sunday on discovery+. It will also air on Animal Planet at 2 p.m. ET.
