“Our hearts are heavy today as we let you all know that our beloved German Shepherd, Champ, passed away peacefully at home,” the statement began. “He was our constant, cherished companion during the last 13 years and was adored by the whole Biden family.”

Biden went on to say that, despite slowing down in recent weeks, Champ had always greeted them with a wagging tail.

“Wherever we were, he wanted to be, and everything was instantly better when he was next to us,” Biden continued, adding, “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. We love our sweet, good boy, and will miss him always.”

First Lady Jill Biden shared the same statement, adding, “RIP to our sweet, good boy, Champ. We will miss you always.”

Champ came to the Biden family after former President Barack Obama won the 2008 presidential election with Biden at his side. He was named, reportedly, by Biden’s granddaughters.
