Biden’s dog Major involved in second biting incident

Major one of the family dogs of U.S. President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden explores the South Lawn after on his arrival from Delaware at the White House in Washington

First Dog Major Biden should get his affairs in order, according to MSNBC host Joe Scarborough, after a second event that was reported as a "biting incident" but resulted in no injury. Earlier this month, CNN reported that Major had bitten an unidentified White House security employee.

It's unclear when exactly the incident occurred, but an image shared on social media by Reuters correspondent Jeff Mason shows Major sporting a leash and being walked on the grounds shortly past 5 p.m. local time. His other dog, Champ, is an old Washington hand, having joined the family in 2008, when Biden was elected vice president.

Biden also has a seemingly less rambunctious, older German Shepherd- Champ, 13.

Major had returned to the White House just the week before following his first biting incident that caused a minor injury to a US Secret Service Employee on March 8.

"Champ and Major, the president and first lady's dogs, are members of the family and still getting acclimated and accustomed to their new surroundings and new people", Psaki said then, reading from her notes. "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.

Currently, both Major and Champ have been moved to the Biden's home in DE as the first couple is away for a few days.

Biden nominates several federal judges, including replacement for Garland
Jackson, a judge on the federal district court in the District of Columbia, was widely considered a leading pick to the D.C. Biden began his term with 68 judicial vacancies, including seven appellate court vacancies and 61 district court vacancies.

"Look, Major was a rescue pup", the president said. I was going to be away for two, so we took him home, ' Biden said at the time.

"He was going home", Mr Biden said.

'I didn't banish him to home.

The dogs met the Bidens two weekends ago at Camp David in Maryland and came back to Washington on March 21.

In November, Biden slipped while playing with Major and injured his foot, necessitating the temporary use of a walking boot.

"The dogs will come and go and it will not be uncommon for them to head back to DE on occasion as the President and first lady often do as well", White House press secretary Jen Psaki said.
