Meanwhile, their other dog, Major, seemed to struggle to adapt to life in the White House. The pooch was the first-ever rescue dog to live in the White House, as he was adopted in 2018. As previously reported by OK!, Major is said to have been involved in what was described as a "biting incident" in March with a member of White House security.

The dog was returned to Delaware for a period of time after the incident. However, he was reportedly involved in another incident weeks after he returned to the White House. Major was then sent to "off-site private training" before coming back to the White House in late April, USA Today reported.

According to The New York Times, Major will be living in another home. "After consulting with dog trainers, animal behaviorists and veterinarians, the first family has decided to follow the experts' collective recommendation that it would be safest for Major to live in a quieter environment with family friends," Jill’s spokesman, Michael LaRosa, said. "This is not in reaction to any new or specific incident, but rather a decision reached after several months of deliberation as a family and discussions with experts."
