The Bidens’ dog Major has been involved in another biting incident that required medical attention. The incident, which involved a National Park Service employee, took place on the White House South Lawn on Monday afternoon. The employee was working at the time and needed to stop in order to receive treatment from the White House medical unit.
First lady Jill Biden’s press secretary Michael LaRosa toldthat Major is “still adjusting to his new surroundings. The National Park Service did not immediately respond to the incident. On March 8, Major caused an injury to a Secret Service employee at the White House, doing enough damage that the person needed treatment from the White House medical team. At the time, White House press secretary Jen Psaki referred to the injury as “minor,” and chalked up Major’s behaviour to “getting acclimated and accustomed to their surroundings and new people.” Psaki said Major was “surprised by an unfamiliar person.” Major, and the Bidens’ older German shepherd, Champ, were almost immediately sent to the Biden home in Wilmington, Delaware, following the incident, the report said. Champ, the president and first lady’s other German shepherd, is older and so far has not generated any biting-related headlines.
