According to the outlet, the dogs were removed from the White House after a “biting incident” involving Major and a White House security member. The security member’s injuries and condition are not clear at this time.
Major, who is three years old, was adopted by the Bidens in 2018 and is the first White House dog to have been adopted from a shelter. Since moving in a week after the president’s inauguration in January, he “has been known to display agitated behaviour on multiple occasions, including jumping, barking, and ‘charging’ at staff and security”, CNN reported, citing two White House sources.
It remains unclear if the dogs will remain in Delaware indefinitely or if they will return to Washington, D.C.
