Champ and Major were removed from the White House and returned to Delaware last week after Major had a ‘biting incident’ with a member of the White House security.
The condition of the security guard is still unknown but serious enough that the two dogs were sent back home to Wilmington.
Champ and Major moved into the White House in January, less than a week after Biden’s inauguration.
The two dogs are the first to occupy the White House since the Obamas’ Portuguese Water Dog Bo.
Major has been known “to display agitated behaviour on multiple occasions, including jumping, barking, and ‘charging’ at staff and security”, CNN reported.
Jill Biden told the singer and talk show host Kelly Clarkson last month: “I’ve been getting obsessed with getting our dogs settled because we have an old dog and we have a very young dog.”
Thousands of people turned to Twitter to voice their opinion on the incident. Many seemed to defend Major’s behaviour.
American journalist Tiffany Cross wrote: “1) He’s only 3
“2) It’s a very new environment & lots of strangers he doesn’t know
“3) Unsurprisingly, no one bothered to get a quote from Major. HIS side of the story remains untold.”
So far, Tiffany’s post on Twitter has received 10.9k likes and 1.3k retweets.

Another said: “News Flash dogs will bite. Do the wrong thing to them and they defend themselves.”
Another wrote: “I had a German Shepherd mix and he was the most protective dog I ever had. He trusted no one until he saw them several times and saw my reaction. Give the dog a break. He was in his protective wheelhouse.”
Major is the younger of the two Biden dogs just three-years-old and was adopted by Biden in November 2018 from a Delaware animal shelter.
Champ is around 12-years-old and was adopted as a puppy in 2008 shortly after Biden was elected vice-president.
The Twitter fan account dedicated to The First Dogs of America tweeted: “Aggressive behaviour? Never. Good boi just loves humans and want to play.
