Biden’s dog Major returns to White House after ‘ruff’ start

Biden’s dog Major returns to White House after ‘ruff’ start”

Afterwards, both German Shepherds were sent back to the Biden family home in Delaware.

President Joe Biden's dogs, who were sent home to DE after Major, the younger one, injured a Secret Service agent, are roaming the White House again.

Psaki had previously detailed the incident and said the dogs were still getting acclimated to their new surroundings at the White House when Major "was surprised by an unfamiliar person and reacted in a way that resulted in a minor injury to the individual".

Biden earlier this month said Major was still getting used to life at the 18-acre complex in the United States capital, surrounded by aides and security officers, but was for the most part a sweet dog beloved by staff.

The dogs had been in the Biden's home state of DE, where Major received some additional training after having been startled by a Secret Service agent who received a minor injury from the fracas.

Mr Biden said his dog was unnerved by the amount of strangers around "and he moves to protect".

Psaki said on Wednesday the dogs joined the Bidens at the Camp David presidential retreat near Thurmont, Maryland, over the weekend and returned to the White House with them on Sunday.

Ms Psaki told reporters last night that both dogs are now back in the White House, but it will "not be uncommon" for them- and the President and First Lady- to move between Washington and DE every now and then.

She has also hinted they may get a cat.
