The Bidens' dog Major has been engaged in another biting episode that needed medical attention, two persons aware of the incident told CNN.
How the Incident Happened
The incident, which involved an employee from National Park Service, happened on Monday afternoon on the White House South Lawn.
The employee was busy with work at the time and needed to stop to obtain treatment from the White House medical unit. Michael LaRosa - Jill Biden's press secretary told CNN that Major is "still acclimatizing to his new surroundings."
"Yes, Major bit someone on a walk. Out of a profusion of caution, the individual was sighted by WHMU and then got back to work without injury." The National Park Service did not instantly respond to the request of CNN for comment.
Short Video of the Walk
According to the White House a 3-year-old German shepherd, Major, adopted by the Bidens in 2018, acquired training within the last two weeks, following a different biting episode earlier this month. Monday evening at about 5 p.m Major was seen on a walk on the South Lawn with a White House staff member.
Newsagency White House correspondent Jeff Mason tweeted a short video of the walk. Major is confined in the video, something that has not usually been the case during other walks around the White House by the dogs when the President and the first lady or White House grounds superintendent Dale Haney is close.
Secret Service employee obtained an injury caused by Major at the White House on March 8, causing enough harm that the individual needed to get treatment from the White House medical team. White House press secretary Jen Psaki at the time called the injury "minor," and attributed Major's behavior to "getting accustomed to their environment and new people."
Major Receives Training
Major was astounded by an unknown person Psaki said. CNN previously reported that Major and Champ - Bidens' older German shepherd, was nearly sent instantly to the Biden home in Wilmington, Delaware, because of the incident. Psaki said that was an arranged trip, as first lady Jill Biden was going out of town.
Major was receiving training, said President Joe Biden in a meeting with ABC News earlier this month."You turn a corner, and there are two unfamiliar individuals. And (Major) makes a move to protect," said Biden. "But he's a nice dog. Eighty-five percent of the people there are fond of him. He just -- all he usually does is lick them and sway his tail. But ... I notice some people, understandably, are scared of dogs to start with."
Major was born in January 2018 and was saved from a litter that had been exposed to a toxic substance in their home, and their keeper was unable to provide the expense of their veterinary care.
The day Joe Biden adopted the dog from Its shelter, he spent over an hour telling stories and also taking selfies with staffers. The origin of Major's name is not known to the public.
