Joe Biden’s two German Shepherds have both been removed from the White House and sent back to his family home in Delaware after the younger of the two – Major – had a “biting incident”. When asked about the incident, White House Press Secretary, Jen Psaki told the press that a “minor injury” had occurred.
In the statement on March 9, Psaki said: “Champ and Major, the President and First Lady’s dogs, members of the family, are still getting acclimated and accustomed to their new surroundings and new people.
“On Monday, the first family’s younger dog, Major, was surprised by an unfamiliar person and reacted in a way that resulted in a minor injury to the individual.”
Psaki added that the injury was treated by the White House medical unit and required “no further treatment.”
As of yet, there has been no updates on the condition of the agent.
Champ and Major moved into the White House within a week of Joe Biden’s inauguration in January.
On the dogs’ removal from the White House, Psaki said: “It had been previously planned already for the dogs to be cared for by family friends in Delaware during Dr. Biden’s travels to military bases this week.
“She has a three-day trip this week.
“And the dogs will return to the White House soon.”
