US First Lady Jill Biden to Undergo ‘Medical Procedure’, White House Says

US First Lady Jill Biden to Undergo ‘Medical Procedure’, White House Says”

President Joe Biden's rescue pup Major will be removed from the White House to undergo additional training after a second biting incident raised more questions about the dog's behavior. And, to help him, he'll have a few weeks of training in the Washington D.C. area. Later in March, the dog bit a security staff member causing a "minor injury," a White House spokeswoman said at the time.

The White House revealed late Tuesday that Jill Biden, 69, was headed to an outpatient facility for a "common" procedure. "Out of an abundance of caution, the individual was seen by the White House Medical Unit and then returned to work without injury", said LaRosa.

After the incident with the Secret Service agent, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the Bidens' dogs, Champ and Major, are "still getting acclimated and accustomed to their surroundings and new people".

Trainers will be trying once more to get Major used to his new life surrounded by aides and Secret Service officers.

Major, the younger of the Bidens' two German Shepherds, did not break skin in the first incident, the president told ABC last month.

But Champ, who is 12, moves slowly and stiffly, often stopping to rest. You turn a corner and there's two people you don't know at all.

Jill Biden tweeted pics of her two dogs on Sunday for National Pet Day, writing 'Love these two!'
