Biden’s Dogs Return to White House After Incident

March 25, 2021 Updated: March 25, 2021

President Joe Biden’s dogs have returned to the White House after they were sent to Delaware when one caused an injury.

Champ and Major joined the first family at Camp David over the weekend before traveling with them to Washington on Sunday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Wednesday.

“The dogs will come and go, and it will not be uncommon for them to head back to Delaware on occasion, as the president and first lady often do as well,” she said.

Major, the family’s younger dog, had caused a minor injury to an individual, the White House said earlier this month.

The individual was reportedly a member of the White House security and the incident was reportedly a bite.

The administration alleged the removal of the dogs was pre-planned.

Biden told ABC News in a recent interview that Major was out of the dog house.

“Major was a rescue pup. Major did not bite someone and penetrate the skin. The dog’s being trained now with our trainer at home in Delaware,” he said.

Biden moved the dogs to the White House shortly after being sworn in on Jan. 20.

He and his wife, First Lady Jill Biden, adopted Major from the Delaware Humane Association in 2018. Champ was adopted in 2008.
