President Joe Biden‘s dog Major has bitten another employee at the White House, according to reports.
A National Park Service employee was taken to the White House Medical Unit for treatment after the German Shepherd ‘nipped’ him while out for a walk.
Jill Biden‘s press secretary Michael LaRosa told CNN: ‘Yes, Major nipped someone on a walk.
‘Out of an abundance of caution, the individual was seen by WHMU and then returned to work.’
President Joe Biden’s dog Major has bitten another employee at the White House, according to reports. The German Shepherd was last seen on a walk with an aide on Monday at 5pm
It comes just three weeks after Major bit another security guard, and was banished to Biden’s family home in Delaware.
He received training alongside the Bidens’ other dog Champ.
Major was last spotted on a walk on Monday at around 5pm on a leash. It’s unclear when exactly the latest biting incident occurred.
At the beginning of March, press secretary Jen Psaki defended the first biting incident, saying the first dogs were ‘still getting acclimated and accustomed to their new surroundings and new people’.
She said Major, whom Biden and his wife Jill adopted in November 2018 from an animal shelter, ‘was surprised by an unfamiliar person and 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.’
She declined to say if the person was a Secret Service agent or give any other identifying information.
Major is the first rescue dog to have lived in the White House, having moved in after Biden’s inauguration in January.
The Bidens adopted him as company for 14-year-old Champ after being told it would help the health of the older dog to have a younger companion.

Joe and Jill Biden rescued the pair of German Shepherds in 2018 and have moved them into the White House
Biden’s predecessor Donald Trump did not have any pets at the White House.
First Lady Jill Biden said in an interview last month she had been focused on getting the dogs settled into their new home in Washington.
‘They have to take the elevator, they’re not used to that, and they have to go out on the South Lawn with lots of people watching them. So that’s what I’ve been obsessed with, getting everybody settled and calm,’ she said on ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show.’
The dogs joined the Bidens at the White House shortly after they relocated to Washington.
Since then, they have been allowed to roam unleashed on the White House grounds and often feature in the background of Oval Office photos.
