Sources at the White House have not divulged much information about the incident, which they termed as a “biting incident”, so the condition of the White House staffer who was involved in the incident is not yet clear. However, the incident, which occurred last week, triggered the relocation of the two dogs to Wilmington, Delaware, where they still are.
President Biden’s inauguration brought back dogs to the White House after Donald Trump’s four-year stint at the White House. Trump was the first US President in 100 years who did not have a pet dog.
Reports from the White House say that, ever since moving into the White House, Major has been the rowdier of the two dogs and has been involved in other “aggressive behavior”, including barking, jumping and charging at White House staffers.
The other dog, Champ, has been the good boy so far. However, at 13 years of age, this can be attributed to being slowed down by age.
