    Default Joe Biden to get a second puppy--from the pound!

    Joe Biden's wife Jill gave him a German Shepherd puppy as a post-election present. The Vice President-elect loves the breed, but he took some heat for his choice from animal rights activists who wish he had chosen a dog from a shelter. Now Biden tells ABC News' George Stephanopoulos that he's getting a second dog, and this one will come from the pound.

    "I've had German Shepherds since I was a kid and I've actually trained them and shown them in the past," Biden said. "So I wanted a German Shepherd and we're going to get a pound dog, which my wife wants, that is hopefully a Golden [Retriever]."

    ok now he's just placating the idiots who gave him hell for getting a pure bred.
    seriously, fuck the animal activists and the anti-smoking groups and all the other moral police biddies that have too much time on their hands and spend it all policing others' behaviour. it's so fucking boring.

    It seems like a win-win-win situation to me. Joe feels better for placating, the people who wanted to be placated were, Jill gets the dog she wants, a pound dog gets a great home, and the doggies get each other. A joyful outcome for all.

    As long as Joe and his family take good care of the dogs, I could care less how many he has.

    as long as he'll care for the new pup whatever I think Biden's such a sweet family man! What about a puppy for his granddaughters?

    Yay Joe, yay doggie, and yay for all the pound puppies who will hopefully get a boost from the press coverage.

    haha i agree, if he wants to get a puppy from a breeder or a shelter it is his choice, some people need to butt out of others lives

    I'd like to see pics of his dogs

    There are multiple photos of the first puppy here (sorry, I don't remember how to post photos). Look at the third picture! Tiny!

    I don't think they've chosen the second dog yet.
