- Champ and Major are German Shepherds owned by US President Joe Biden and his wife Jill
- They moved to the White House together with the head of state and have even attended some of his meetings at the Oval Office
- A biting incident has seen them lose that privilege as they were moved back to the family home in Delaware
A few weeks ago, Briefly.co.za shared the story of Champ and Major, the two presidential German Shepherds that were granted direct access to the White House.
The favours have, however, come to a crashing end after Major, the youngest of them, was involved in a biting incident with a member of US President Joe Biden's security team.
They were whisked out of the White House and taken back to Wilmington, Delaware where the Bidens have a family home.
Three-year-old Major is a rescue who was adopted by the family from an animal shelter in 2018.
Sources close to the family indicate that Major has a tendency to display aggressive behaviour like jumping on people, barking and charging at staff members.
As a matter of fact, Jill has once admitted to catching Major on the couch, one of the places the dogs are not allowed.
"They run all over," she said.
Champ, the older of the two dogs, is nearly 13 years old therefore tame and quiet due to his age. As at the time of writing this report, details on the condition of the victim remain brief.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za reported that President of the United States Joe Biden recently headed to Twitter to celebrate reaching a vaccine milestone in the country. In a tweet, the president shared that 50 million vaccines have been administered to US citizens since he came into office earlier this year.
"This afternoon, we’re reaching a big milestone: 50 million Covid-19 vaccine doses administered since I took office. Tune in as we mark our progress and chart the path forward," his tweet read.
The tweet received just over 18 000 likes and over 2 000 retweets. Many US citizens as well as people from other countries also headed to the comment section where they shared their thoughts with Biden.
