One of President Joe Biden’s dogs allegedly pooped on the floor of the White House on Wednesday, according to a pool report.
The incident took place outside the Palm Room doors in front of the Diplomatic Room, the report said. “There was dog poo on the floor. It’s unclear which dog was responsible for it,” quoted CBS White House reporter Kathryn Watson.
The two dogs, Champ and Major, were on the South Lawn as first lady Jill Biden’s motorcade waited to depart, the report continued. “Major was on a leash. Champ was not but was moving slowly and stiffly.”

The mess comes just a day after news emerged that three-year-old Major, the younger of Biden’s two German Shepherds, nipped a National Park Service employee during his walk Monday on the South Lawn of the White House. The employee, who was working at the time, required medical attention from the White House medical unit.
As The Daily Wire noted:
Michael LaRosa, first lady Jill Biden’s press secretary, chalked up the biting to Major “still adjusting to his new surroundings.”
“Yes, Major nipped someone on a walk. Out of an abundance of caution, the individual was seen by WHMU and then returned to work without injury,” LaRosa added.
Biden said during an interview with ABC News earlier this month that Major was being trained to wield his protective instincts more responsibly.
“You turn a corner, and there’s two people you don’t know at all,” said Biden. “And [Major] moves to protect. But he’s a sweet dog. Eighty-five percent of the people there love him. He just — all he does is lick them and wag his tail. But … I realize some people, understandably, are afraid of dogs to begin with.”
Major and Champ were taken back to Delaware earlier this month after exhibiting “aggressive behavior,” which included Major biting a Secret Service agent.
As The Daily Wire reported at the time:
“Major, who was adopted by Biden in November 2018 from a Delaware animal shelter, had what one of the people described as a ‘biting incident’ with a member of White House security,” CNN reported. “The exact condition of the victim is unknown, however, the episode was serious enough that the dogs were subsequently moved to Wilmington, Delaware, where they remain.”
The report noted that Major, which is the younger of the two dogs, “has been known to display agitated behavior on multiple occasions, including jumping, barking, and ‘charging’ at staff and security.” A White House official told NBC News on Tuesday morning that the dogs would “be back” and “went to Delaware to stay with family friends.”
The dogs have reportedly been allowed to roam around the White House complex as they please without a leash.
