Looks like Major Biden is in trouble again.
You may recall when last we heard about Major Biden, the three-year-old German Shepard had allegedly been sent back to Delaware along with Champ the 13-year-old older dog. It was claimed that Major was just startled when he tried to take a piece out of a Secret Service member. Jen Psaki later claimed Major hadn’t been sent away, saying that he was just visiting Delaware with Jill Biden.
Joe Biden admitted that Major was getting some training, presumably to get more used to his new home and not chomp on people.

Apparently, that didn’t work because he’s now reported to have taken a bite of someone else at the White House and that person needed medical attention, according to Fox News.
First Lady Jill Biden’s press secretary Michael de Rosa confirmed the “nip” in a statement to Fox News. “Major is still adjusting to his new surroundings and he nipped someone while on a walk. Out of an abundance of caution, the individual was seen by WHMU and then returned to work without injury.”
The encounter took place on the White House South Lawn Monday. CNN first reported the bite, adding that the employee worked for the National Park Service.

It’s not clear what they’re going to do, but obviously, there’s a lot of stimuli in the White House for a sensitive dog. It sounds like he needs a quiet laid back environment. For sure, that’s not the White House. The Bidens really should be considering what’s best for him; if he needs some more training or if a different environment completely would be much better for him. It just might be too crazy a place, it is for many people, let alone dogs.
I’m not kidding when I say if trump had a dog that was biting people, CNN would be interviewing several psychologists on how there are no bad dogs, just bad owners. The New York Times would run a story with quotes by the humane society https://t.co/Ee0vMkOLTt

That’s pretty clear.
If you were the Biden’s dog, wouldn’t you be acting out?

Who can really blame him, after all?
Of course, it could be just dog imitating master.
We literally KNOW that these dogs are biting because their owner also bites…
Come on, man!

When does Joe get removed from the White House for his biting incidents? Why does Major get held to a higher standard than his “master”? pic.twitter.com/phFQhLcuG8

Excellent point, I’ll take Major over Joe any day of the week.
Joe Biden ran on bringing dogs back to the White House and that might just not be working out.

Unfortunately, there are still some dogs in the White House (and I don’t mean Major or Champ).
