Joe Biden two dogs have been sent back to the Biden family home in Wilmington, Delaware, after the younger of the two German Shepherds, the rescue dog Major, bit a member of the White House Security CNN reported.
Three-year-old German Shepherd dog Major, whom Biden and his better half Jill rescued in November 2018 from an animal shelter, had been showing forceful conduct including jumping, barking and growling at White House staff and security.
The severity of the biting incident is unknown but it was serious enough that the dogs were moved back to Wilmington, Delaware, where they remain.
First Lady Jill Biden said in a meeting a month ago she had been centered around getting the dogs fit into their new home in Washington, “I’ve been getting obsessed with getting our dogs settled because we have an old dog and we have a very young dog,” she said on ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show’.
“They have to take the elevator, they’re not used to that, and they have to go out on the South Lawn with lots of people watching them. So that’s what I’ve been obsessed with, getting everybody settled and calm.”
Biden also said the only place the dogs are not allowed is on the furniture, though she admitted to catching Major on the couch. “They run all over,” said Biden.
It’s not the first time the rescue dog Major has brought attention to himself. On November 28, Biden suffered an injury when his dog “tripped on the rug slid on” as the 78-year-old Biden and his three-year-old dog were roughhousing.
