Joe Biden's dogs to return to the White House after 'biting incident'

JOE BIDEN'S dogs will soon be back at home in the White House after they were temporarily sent away following a 'biting incident'.

As we reported on earlier this month, US president Joe Biden's younger German Shepherd dog, a rescue named Major, was involved in a 'biting incident' with a security agent.

CNN cited anonymous sources which claimed the three-year-old rescue dog had been displaying aggressive behaviour including barking, charging and jumping at White House staff and security.

Both Major and 13-year-old German Shepherd Champ were removed from the White House and sent to Biden's hometown of Wilmington, Delaware after the younger dog was involved in a 'biting incident'-- but Mr Biden has confirmed both dogs will return soon.

He told ABC News that while Major was involved in an incident, he "did not bite someone and penetrate the skin".

Major is "undergoing a training session" before he returns to the White House, and Mr Biden said his dog was unnerved by the amount of strangers around "and he moves to protect".

"Every door you turn to, there's a guy there in a black jacket," Biden told the news outlet.

"You turn a corner and there's two people I don't know at all. And they move — and he moves to protect. But he's a sweet dog."

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki confirmed last week that the dogs would be returning, and described the biting incident as Major being "surprised by an unfamiliar person".

The dog "reacted in a way that resulted in a minor injury to the individual, which was handled by the White House Medical Unit with no further treatment needed."
