Champ, Presidential Pet German Shepherd, Dies at 13

Champ, a German shepherd who helped restore the time-honored presidential tradition of having a pet at the White House, died on Saturday.

Champ was 13, and “died peacefully at home,” President Biden and Jill Biden, the first lady, said on Twitter.

“In our most joyful moments and in our most grief-stricken days, he was there with us, sensitive to our every unspoken feeling and emotion,” they said. “We love our sweet, good boy and will miss him always.”

The Biden family’s other German shepherd, Major, began roaming the White House in January, after a four-year hiatus of pets in the executive residence during the presidency of Donald J. Trump.
