TMZ is reporting that Major, a 3-year-old German Shepard that Biden adopted from an animal shelter in Delaware has been booted from the Whitehouse to multiple instances of aggression toward staff and security.
“President Biden’s dogs just got the old heave-ho from the White House … sounds like they were too aggressive for 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. The Bidens’ 2 German Shepherds, Major and Champ, were shipped back to the family home in Delaware last week following some un-doglike (or maybe doglike) behavior at the White House, including a biting incident.
Major, the 3-year-old pooch Biden adopted from a Delaware animal shelter in 2019, reportedly got his chompers on a member of White House security. Major’s also said to have been pretty agitated around the residence … allegedly charging, jumping and barking at staff and security. Champ, meanwhile, seems to be getting the short end of the stick … he’s been sent back to Wilmington too … even though he’s about 13 years old and has slowed down considerably due to his age.”
Champ, Biden’s other much more elderly dog was also sent out of the Whitehouse for a stint as well, though it was noted that the canine exile is not permanent:
“Major and Champ won’t be kept away from the White House for too long. The dogs will reportedly be back. A White House official told NBC News, “With the First Lady traveling for three days, Champ and Major went to Delaware to stay with family friends.”
No word yet on whether any other dogs in the Whitehouse will be removed.
