President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden announced on Saturday that their 13-year-old German Shepherd Champion has passed away.
“Today we are in a heavy heart because we tell everyone that our beloved German Shepherd, Champ, has passed away peacefully at home. For the past 13 years, he has been our consistent beloved partner and has been influenced by the entire Biden family. Worship,” they said in a statement. When Biden wins the 2020 election, it means that the White House will be home to two of the first pets: a young rescue dog Major and the champion who lived with them in the Washington, DC Observatory Circle during the Barack administration.
There are many reasons why German Shepherds are leading the canine royal family, but experts say that their defining attributes are character: loyalty, courage, self-confidence, the ability to learn the commands of many tasks, and the willingness to risk their lives. Defend the loved one. The German Shepherd will become a gentle family pet and a firm guardian, but according to breed standards, there is “a certain distance, not suitable for immediate and indiscriminate friendship.”
Biden said that although his strength has weakened in the past few months, Champ was a comfort to them. “When we enter the room, it will get up immediately, its tail is always wagging, it will stroke us with its nose, scratch our ears or rub our belly,” the statement continued. “He wants to go no matter where we are. When he is by our side, everything will get better immediately.” He likes to curl up in front of the fire at the end of the day and curl up at our feet to join us in Comfort during the meeting or sunbathe on the lawn of the White House. “They said that when Champ was young, he was “the happiest thing about chasing golf balls on the front lawn of the Naval Observatory, or running around in our backyard in Delaware to pick up our grandson.” “In our happiest and most painful days, he was with us and was sensitive to everyone’s unexpressed feelings and emotions. We love our lovely good boy and we will always miss him.”
Biden bought the championship from a breeder in Pennsylvania in 2008 when he was just a three-month-old puppy. Jill Biden had promised Joe that they would keep a dog after the 2008 election. According to Politico, they would “record photos of different dogs on the seatbacks of the Biden campaign plane.” After raising him for about eight months, they adopted Major from the Delaware Humane Society (DHA) in November 2018, who is also a German Shepherd. According to “Today” reports, Biden’s dog was temporarily sent back to Delaware after the “bite incident” involving Major but returned to the White House. Donald Trump is the first president without a dog in a century. At a rally in 2019, Trump stated that the idea of keeping a dog seemed “false.”
