The coming of the Biden administration was seen by many on the left as a return to normalcy at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, after 4 years of one of the most unique Presidents that the world has ever seen.
And while some of Donald Trump’s controversial choices were on major policy issues and international diplomacy, the left constantly chided The Don for, among other things, not having any pets.
Yes, that was a real complaint among many, and there appeared to be a great deal of fanfare among Democrats when Joe Biden decided to bring his two canines back to the White House.
Now, one of these pups is being sent home to Delaware after a frightening incident.
President Joe Biden has sent his two dogs back to his family home in Wilmington, Delaware, after the younger of the two German Shepherds was involved in a “biting incident” with a White House security agent, US media said Monday.
Three-year-old Major, whom Biden and his wife Jill adopted in November 2018 from an animal shelter, had been displaying aggressive behavior including jumping, barking and charging at White House staff and security, CNN reported, citing two anonymous sources.
The sources described a “biting incident” involving a member of the security services but did not specify if the person was injured. The episode was, however, seen as serious enough for both dogs, including 13-year-old Champ, to be returned to the Bidens’ home in Wilmington last week.
Major was the first rescue dog to ever live in the White House, and animal adoption groups around the nation had been celebrating his rise to prominence on account of this.
