US President Joe Biden's dog Major involved in second White House biting incident - ABC News

US President Joe Biden's dog Major has bitten a second person this month, the White House confirmed.

The dog "nipped someone while on a walk" earlier this month, first lady Jill Biden's spokesman, Michael LaRosa, said. 

Mr LaRosa said the person bitten by Major was seen by the White House Medical Unit "out of an abundance of caution" and returned to work without injury.

The dog was seen on a walk around the White House South Lawn before the President and first lady travelled to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial early Monday evening.

The German Shepherd only returned to the White House last week — along with his sibling Champ — after causing a minor injury to a member of the US Secret Service.

After that incident, Mr Biden said Major was "a sweet dog".

Mr Biden explained the biting by saying that the dog had "turned a corner, there's two people he doesn't know at all, you know, and they move and he moves to protect".

Among the Democratic front-runners, Joe Biden shares his life with a German shepherd, Major.

Major, a three-year-old rescue dog, and Champ, who is 12, were moved to the Bidens' Delaware home after the incident.

The President said Major was being trained in Delaware but disputed the idea that the pup had been sent away after the incident.

He said the dogs went to Wilmington because he was going to be out of town.

"He was going home," Mr Biden said.

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

Last week, one of the two German Shepherds waited on the balcony of the White House as Marine One landed on the South Lawn, having ferried the President back from a speech in Columbus, Ohio.

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