Now, more details are emerging and we’ve learned that the dogs will return to Washington, DC.
“[Champ and Major] are still getting acclimated and accustomed to their surroundings and new people,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said in a statement to CNN. “And on Monday, the first family’s younger dog, Major, was surprised by an unfamiliar person and reacted in a way that resulted in a minor injury to the individual.” Major is a rescue dog adopted by the couple in November of 2018. He is the first rescue dog to ever reside in the White House.
A White House official added to NBC that “Yes, they will be back.”
