Biden’s mangy mutt, Major, is involved in yet another biting incident at the White House. It seems that the Biden family has yet to find a proper trainer for the poor dog and multiple attacks have ensued as a result.
Major first made news on March 8th after biting a Secret Service employee at the White House. The injury was was severe enough that the employee was required to seek treatment from the White House medical team.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki – of course – downplayed the incident, almost blaming the Secret Service agent by calling him “unfamiliar” to Major. She claimed Major was simply getting acclimated to his new environment and the biting incident was merely a side effect. She called the employee’s injury “minor.”
Press sec. Psaki says Pres. Biden’s dogs are “still getting acclimated and accustomed to their new surroundings and new people.”

After the incident Major was sent back to the Biden residence in Delaware, but later returned to the White House earlier this month.
Earlier this March, Biden called Major a “sweet dog” and said he was undergoing training.
However, White House reporters revealed Major often “displays agitated behavior on multiple occasions, including jumping, barking, and ‘charging’ at staff and security.”
The White House has yet to comment on the second biting incident.
