While being back at the Delaware House, Major did many pieces of training. A spokesperson from the White House confirmed the return of both the dogs.

Also, they were temporarily located back in Delaware house after Major became more aggressive and started charging at the White House security and staff.

More on the incident

Joe Biden said,

“Major did not bite someone and penetrate the skin. What happens is … what surprised me is the White House itself, living there: Every door you turn to, there’s a guy there in a black jacket. 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.”

On 9th March 2021, Jen Psaki said,

“Major 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.”

Talking about bringing the dog back to Delaware, Joe revealed that they did that as they were traveling. He even claimed that his dog major is loved by 85% of the people of the White House.

Likewise, Major licks and wags his tail at people, and some of them are afraid of dogs which is understandable.
