Omaha Saves Hope {that a} White Home Main Will Assist Different Animals Discover Properties Native Information

One of the new first dogs in the White House will have dual duties.

In addition to being a very good boy to President Joe Biden and his family, Major is an ambassador for rescue animals everywhere.

The German Shepherd is the first protection dog and third rescue animal to be found on Pennsylvania Ave. 1600 lives. He was adopted by the Delaware Humane Association in 2018 and came to his new home on Sunday with the 12-year-old Champ, also a German Shepherd.

Major is already enjoying runs on the White House South Lawn. That he’s here is exciting news for rescue workers.

“I think success stories like this help people realize that a rescue pet may have a past, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it doesn’t have a wonderful future or a wonderful place in your home,” said Terri Larson, President and Founder of Muddy Paws second chance rescue in Omaha and Council Bluffs.

Larson hopes Major’s flourishing during his stay at the White House will help overcome a stigma that rescue dogs come with luggage.

Or that they’re inferior dogs, said Eryn Swan, owner of Wag Pet Store and board member of Felius Cat Cafe & Rescue.

“They’re not all mixed breeds or ugly dogs or have some kind of physical fault,” she said. “It can show people who don’t understand that you can get a dog out of a rescue or animal shelter. If you are looking for a purebred puppy, he’s out there. ”
