Major, Joe Biden’s German Shepherd, sent back in early March after a bite, will return to the White House. “He’s a nice dog,” the US president said in an interview on Wednesday.
The dog allegedly bit a security guard after meeting “with two people” Major did not know. “They move, and he moves to protect,” said Joe Biden. The animal, from a refuge and aged 3, had been sent with his companion Champ to Wilmington, the president’s stronghold in Delaware, after having caused a “slight injury”.
The dog “is being trained”
According to Joe Biden, his dog was not fired because of the accident. He only “came home” because the presidential couple had to be away for a few days. The young German Shepherd “is being trained,” said the Democratic president.
Major had already been talked about at the end of November when Joe Biden, already elected but not yet president, broke his foot while playing with him. The first dog from a shelter to settle in the White House, he was adopted by the Biden at the end of 2018.
