The report comes after Major, Biden’s younger dog, was involved in a second biting incident on Monday.

He continued, “Out of an abundance of caution, the individual was seen by [the White House Medical Unit] and then returned to work.”
Biden and the White House defended his adopted 3-year-old dog after he bit someone for the first time last month, calling him a “sweet” animal who was still adjusting to life at his new home.
“You turn a corner, and there’s two people you don’t know at all,” Biden explained of what could have provoked the dog. “And he moves to protect.”
Major reportedly received training after the initial incident, after which the dogs were removed from the White House property for a period of time.
