US President Joe Biden’s dog, Major, has reportedly bit a member of the White House security team and has been sent home to Delaware.
The other First Dog, Champ, has also been sent home along with Major.
CNN reports that the two German shepherds are temporarily back at the president’s family home in Delaware following a biting incident involving a member of the White House security team. Major, who is three years old and the younger of the two canines, was the one involved in the incident.
When the dogs arrived alongside the Biden's in the White House earlier this year, it was reported that Champ joined the Biden family late in 2008. Major was adopted two years ago through the Delaware Humane Association.
While many former Presidents have had dogs living with them in the White House, Major is the first shelter dog to live there.
During a recent interview on her TV talk show, Kelly Clarkson asked First Lady Dr. Jill Biden what it's like having their two dogs living with them.
“I’ve been obsessed with getting our dogs settled. They have to take the elevator, they’re not used to that, they have to go out on the South Lawn with lots of people watching them.”
A White House official has confirmed that both dogs will be back soon.
