Biden's dogs 'WILL be allowed back to White House' after German Shepherd 'bit guard & charged at staff'

PRESIDENT Joe Biden’s two dogs “will be allowed back" to the White House after one of the canines reportedly behaved aggressively toward staff.

Major, adopted by Biden in November 2018, had a “biting incident” with a White House security member, two sources told CNN on Monday. 

The extent of the injury to the security staff was not immediately known.

But the injury was serious enough that Major and Biden’s other dog, Champ, were taken back to Wilmington, Delaware.

But now an official has reportedly said the dogs will return home to Washington, DC.

A White House official told NBC News: “Yes, they will be back” referring to the first couple’s dogs.

“With the First Lady traveling for three days, Champ and Major went to Delaware to stay with family friends.”

On Tuesday morning, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki had suggested to MSNBC that the dogs were only temporarily relocated.

"Major and Champ are part of the Bidens' family. They're members of the family," She said.

"They often go to Delaware when the first lady's traveling and they're adjusting to their new home."

"I don't have any more on those reports, I just know that they're beloved members of the family."

Major, who is three years old, had shown agitated behavior on several occasions including “charging” at staff, jumping, and barking, sources told CNN. 

Champ, about 13 years old, was slower due to his older age. 

Major and Champ have previously stayed at the Delaware home with minders when First Lady Jill Biden was away.

The two dogs moved into the White House less than a week after Biden was inaugurated in January. 

Last month, the first lady told Kelly Clarkson, “I’ve been getting obsessed with getting our dogs settled because we have an old dog and we have a very young dog.” 

The first lady said the dogs had to take an elevator and “they’re not used to that,” and that they had to go on the South Lawn with many eyes on them.

“So that's what I've been obsessed with, getting everybody settled and calm,” Jill Biden said.

The first lady admitted that Major was on the couch although dogs are not allowed to get on furniture in the White House.

“They run all over,” she said.

The Bidens adopted Major from the Delaware Humane Association in 2018, a few months before Joe announced his bid for president.

Major is the first shelter dog to live in the White House.

Champ has been with the Bidens since 2008, soon after Biden was elected vice president. 

Biden left for a two-day trip to Washington and California on Monday afternoon to visit military bases.

In late November, Biden slipped while playing with Major and twisted his ankle.

He was examined by an orthopedist and a follow-up CT scan confirmed hairline fractures of his lateral and intermediate cuneiform bones in the mid-section of his foot. 

"It is anticipated that he will likely require a walking boot for several weeks," Dr Kevin O'Connor said at the time.
