President Biden’s Dog, Champ, Died Over the Weekend
President Biden announced Saturday that Champ, the older of the family’s two dogs, had died “peacefully at home.” The German shepherd was 13.
The Bidens got Champ from a breeder after Biden was elected vice president in 2008.
Champ was a fixture at both the vice president’s residence at the Naval Observatory and now the White House.
Champ's passing leaves the Bidens with their younger German shepherd, Major, who they’ve had since 2018.
The Bidens are expected to bring a cat to the White House to join the family sometime soon.
