United States President dog has bitten another man, just days after returning from training in Delaware, after biting a different employee earlier this month.
Presidential spokeswoman Jill Biden said “for fear of what could happen” doctors examined an employee before returning to work.
Major was the youngest of President Biden’s dogs nicknamed the German Shepherds and was the first rescue dog at the White House.
“It’s an exciting dog,” Joe Biden said.
On Monday, Biden spokesman Michael LaRosa, commenting on Monday’s incident, said: “The Major is still in a state of disarray and has bitten someone during the passing. “
CNN reported that the dog bit a park ranger, prompting him to stop working and be examined by doctors. But park officials have not commented on the incident.
President Biden’s two dogs, 13-year-old Major and Champ, were taken to his home in Wilmington, Delaware, after a bite on March 8.
An unnamed source told CNN that at the time of the incident, Major was jumping up and down with the anger of White House staff and security officials.
But President Biden says the Major is trying to contradict the people he sees now. “He was trying to defend himself, when he woke up he saw more than two people he didn’t know,” he told ABC’s Good Morning America program.
He added: “Eighty-five percent of the people in the White House love him. The only thing he tells them is to beat their legs and kick his tail. But I’ve noticed some people feel dog.”
Biden took over as Major in 2018, when he was just three years old.
While the other Champ has been at the White House since he was a child, when President Biden was vice president. He returned to the White House earlier this year.
