“Nuestros corazones están apesadumbrados hoy porque les dejamos saber que nuestro amado pastor alemán, Morder, falleció pacíficamente en casa,” los Biden dijeron en un comunicado. “El era nuestra constante, querido compañero durante el último 13 years and was adored by the entire Biden family.”
Biden brought two dogs, Champ and Major, to the White House this year. Champ has been living with the Bidens since 2008 and was reportedly named by the president’s granddaughters. Major was adopted in 2018 and is the first rescue dog to live in the White House.
Both dogs returned to the White House in March after being sent to the family home in Wilmington, Delaware, for what the White House described as a pre-planned trip. That came after informes that Major bit a member of the White House security team and had been barking and lunging at other staffers. There had been no reports of bad behavior from the older Champ.
