President Biden and first lady Jill Biden said Saturday that their dog Champ has died.

“Our hearts are heavy today as we let you all know that our beloved German Shepherd, Champ, passed away peacefully at home. He was our constant, cherished companion for the last 13 years and was adored by the entire Biden family,” the Bidens said in a statement on Twitter.

The first family said that Champ had been waning in recent months, but “when we came into a room, he would immediately pull himself up, his tale always wagging.”
