Joe Biden's dog Major has bitten another White House employee

This is the second time that Major has bitten a member of staff at the White House.

President Joe Biden's dog Major has bitten another member of staff at the White House, following his return from dog training in Delaware after his first biting incident this year.

The press secretary for the First Lady Jill Biden, Michael LaRosa, told the public: "Major is still adjusting to his new surroundings and he nipped someone while on a walk."

He added that the individual involved in the incident was seen by medics "out of an abundance of caution", before returning to work.

This comes after President Biden's three-year-old rescue dog reportedly bit a member of security staff at the White House earlier this month.

President Biden's dogs Major and Champ, his 13-year-old dog, were sent to Delaware to receive training after the first member of staff was nipped by Major.

The President adopted Major from the Delaware Humane Society three years ago, after his time in the White House as vice president.

Speaking to ABC News in March, President Biden said that Major was "a sweet dog".

He said: "85% of the people [at his official residence] love him. All he does is lick them and wag his tail. But... I realise some people, understandably, are afraid of dogs to begin with."
