Biden Second Puppy Coming From Pound

Posted: Updated:

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]."
