Look who's bitin' Biden....a new German Shepherd Pup!
While the country is fixated on what kind of dog President-elect Barack Obama's family will get when they move into the White House, his Vice President-elect Joe Biden quietly picked out a puppy of his own last week.
According to a report from MSNBC, Biden's wife, Jill, promised the future VP a dog if he and Obama got elected. Biden found the as-yet-unnamed pup, a three-month old male German Shepherd, in a breeder's kennel in southeastern Pennsylvania, the area's Daily Local News reports.
We Muttropolitans only wish that Biden had considered setting a better example to all prospective pet parents by visiting his local shelter or Petfinder.com to find his new pup, as there are literally thousands of wonderful German Shepherds (& others) sitting in shelters waiting to find their forever homes
In fact, after conducting an impromptu search of German Shepherd Rescue groups, Biden would have discovered that there are hundreds of German Shepherds, large or small, young or old, that are looking for a new loving home at this very moment...... like Abbey at left!
