The two dogs Major and Champ moved into the White House with the new US President Joe Biden. But now, according to the US media, there should have been an incident – with consequences.
With Joe Biden and his wife Jill, the two sheepdogs Major and Champ moved into the White House at the beginning of the new legislative period. But in the past week, the four-legged friends were reportedly sent back to their original home in the US state of Delaware. There was a “biting incident,” CNN reported, citing a source.
Major, who was the first dog rescued from the shelter to ever move into the White House, is said to have behaved aggressively towards a security guard. How exactly the security team is doing is not known. The incident was so bad that the dogs were banned from Washington. The White House itself has not yet commented on the reports.
Major is said to have shown behavioral problems before
In 2018, the three-year-old major was adopted from the shelter by Jill and Joe Biden. The dog had previously been noticed several times with excited behavior in the White House and barked at employees, jumped on and attacked them, as CNN further reports. The Bidens bought their first dog, the 13-year-old champ, in 2008. The couple are considered great dog lovers.
Dogs in the White House have a long history. The Kennedy family lived with around half a dozen dogs, and although President Lyndon Johnson’s dog Yuki was the first rescued dog in the White House, it did not come from a shelter: Johnson’s daughter Luci picked it up at a gas station in Texas. The Portuguese water dogs Bo and Sunny lived with the Obamas in the White House. Even at press conferences and state visits, the two became loyal companions. Donald and Melania Trump didn’t have dogs.
