Less than a month since the last biting incident, Bidens rescue dog Major is at it again. On Monday he apparently “nipped someone while on a walk’ and that he “is still adjusting to his new surroundings” said Jill Biden press secretary, Michael LaRosa. Major bit a National Park Service staff member who was working on the White House South Lawn.
The employee required medical attention to which LaRosa told CNN, “Yes, Major nipped someone on a walk. Out of an abundance of caution, the individual was seen by WHMU and then returned to work without injury.”
Biden had stated earlier this month that Major was being trained back home in Delaware. “You turn a corner, and there’s two people you don’t know at all. And Major moves to protect,” Biden said. “But he’s a sweet dog. Eighty-five percent of the people there love him. He just—all he does is lick them and wag his tail. But … I realize some people, understandably, are afraid of dogs to begin with.”
Major had moved into the White House shortly after January 20th along with the Bidens and remained there until the incident on March 8th where he bit a U.S. Secret Service Agent. He had just returned back to the White House from Delaware last week. I believe I also read a breaking news article earlier that the dog also pooped on the floor somewhere in the White House today.
