Jan Patten, Biff’s owner, started the dog his own Instagram account where she could share updates about him for his fans.

While Biff lived a long and full life, he sadly crossed the rainbow bridge on November 21, 2022.

Patten wrote a tribute to Biff on Facebook, saying: “One of our last photos. People say, he had a wonderful life with us, but in reality, we had a wonderful life with him.”

In an interview with the Daily Mail, Patten said:

“Biff was a very much loved family member, and everyone that met him loved him too. His fame gave us the opportunity to raise funds for animal charities. Biffy and I had a really special bond, and no matter what I asked of him, whether it would be new tricks, displays, meet and greets, or photos with children, adults, and animals, he would happily oblige, with the patience of a saint.”

“At home, he was pure joy, making us smile every day. I don’t know if you are aware but boxers are known as the clowns of the canines, and even though Biff would be professional at the right time, he never ever lost the ability to make us laugh. We shall miss him so much,” she added.
