Biden's dog will return to the White House

However Mr Biden has now said the move back to DE was not in response to the alleged biting incident, but was pre-planned to accommodate the First Lady's schedule.

"I've been obsessed with getting our dogs settled because we have [an] old dog and we have a very young dog", Dr Biden said recently during an interview with singer and TV show host Kelly Clarkson.

Asked if Major was now "out of the dog house", Biden said: "Yes".

Major is a rescue the Bidens adopted from the Delaware Humane Association shortly before Biden hit the campaign trail past year.

Biden said with First Lady Dr. Jill Biden being away from the White House for a few days, and his own travels keeping him away from D.C., Major was sent to DE and is being trained. "Jill was going to be away for four days, I was going to be away for two, so we took him home".

Major and Champ joined the first family at the White House shortly after Inauguration Day and Biden explained that living in the new environment startled Major.

Calling the rescue pup a "sweet dog", Biden insisted that Major poses little threat.

Mr Biden added that "85 per cent of the people "at the White House "love him". He just, all he does is lick them and wag his tail", he said".

"You turn the corner and there's two people you don't know at all and they move, and he moves to protect", he told ABC's Good Morning America. He said the dogs went to Wilmington because the first couple was going to be out of town.
