President Biden dodged questions surrounding his pet German Shepherds and whether one of them attacked a White House employee; saying the canine’s bite did not “penetrate the skin” and 85% of workers “love him!”
“Is Major out of the dog house?” Stephanopoulos asked the president.

BAD DOGS! Biden’s German Shepherds Sent Back to Delaware After ‘Biting Incident’ at White House
Joe Biden’s pair of German Shepherds were reportedly sent back to Delaware this week after showing “aggressive behavior” towards White House staffers and guests.
“Three-year-old Major, whom Biden and his wife Jill adopted in November 2018 from an animal shelter, had been displaying aggressive behavior including jumping, barking and charging at White House staff and security,” reports Yahoo News.
