Another ‘Biting Incident’ for White House Dog
It's been a ruff couple of months for first dogs Major and Champ Biden. Like any other pooches who are in new surroundings, they have had to make adjustments moving to a new environment. And of course, having cameras in their faces 24/7 can't be easy.
The two first dogs, who are both German Shepherds, had been beloved members of the Biden family before they became the new occupants at 1600 Pennslyvania Ave. The Bidens adopted Major from the Delaware Humane Association in 2018 after fostering him for several months and he is the first rescue dog from an animal shelter to live in the White House. Major, who is three years old, was joined by the Biden's other German Shepard, 13-year-old Champ. And Dr. Jill Biden has expressed her wishes to bring a cat to the White House as well.
Earlier this month both dogs were sent back home to Wilmington, Delaware after a 'biting incident' with a member of the White House Secret Service team. They have since returned to Washington, D.C., after training, but maybe not for long. It seems like there has been another incident. And yes, it involves biting.
On Monday afternoon, according to CNN, Major was involved in an incident with a member of the National Park Service, who was working at the time. The employee, who has not been identified, received treatment from the White House Medical Unit. According to First lady Jill Biden's press secretary Michael LaRosa, who told CNN "Yes, Major nipped someone on a walk. Out of an abundance of caution, the individual was seen by WHMU and then returned to work without injury." Maybe they should call Cesar Millan, the Dog Whisperer. #Justsayin
