WASHINGTON (NewsNation Now) — President Joe Biden’s dog, Major, has been involved in a second biting incident according to the first lady’s press secretary.

“Major is still adjusting to his new surroundings and he nipped someone while on a walk. Out of an abundance of caution, the individual was seen by WHMU and then returned to work without injury,” said Press Secretary Michael LaRosa.

Major previously had caused a minor injury to a person after the dog was startled. Biden said in an interview after the first incident that Major was a “sweet dog” who didn’t mean harm.

 He explained the biting by saying that the dog had “turned a corner, there’s two people he doesn’t know at all, you know, and they move and moves to protect.”

Major, a 3-year-old rescue German Sheppard, returned to the White House a few weeks ago with 12-year-old German Sheppard Champ after both dogs received more training.
