But his appearance caught the eye of Newsmax host Greg Kelly, who criticized the German Shepherd as a picture of the dog flashed up on screen.
He said: "Did you see the dog? I wanted to show you something I noticed.
"Doesn’t he look a little rough? I love dogs, but this dog needs a bath and a comb and all kinds of love and care.
"I don’t know how much love and care he is getting. This dog looks like, I’m sorry, like it’s from the junkyard."
One of Kelly's guests, historian and author Craig Shirley, then chipped in.
He said Champ looked "dirty and disheveled" and was "very unlike a presidential dog."
Twitter users leapt to the dog's defense after the comments by the pair.
One said: "Champ is a 12 year old German shepherd. That’s about as old as they come.Host Greg Kelly (center), along with historian Craig Shirley (right), were not pleased with Champ's appearanceCredit: Newsmax
"The fact that he’s walking about living his life is delightful. F**k these insipid ghouls for having a problem with that."
Another tweeted: "What kind of human criticizes a beautiful doggo?! Champ is a handsome boy."
Another asked: "What the hell is a 'Presidential Dog'?"
Champ is one of two German Shepherds owned by the Bidens, with the other being Major.
Biden replaced Donald Trump last month after November's election win.
He has already reversed some of his predecessor's policies, including bringing America back into the Paris Climate Accord.
