Press secretary Jen PsakiJen PsakiHillicon Valley: Tech companies duke it out at Senate hearing | Seven House Republicans vow to reject donations from Big Tech Vaccination slowdown could threaten recovery New signs of progress emerge on police reform MORE confirmed the canines' return at Wednesday's press briefing, saying Champ and Major may come and go from the White House and were with the first family at Camp David over the weekend.

Psaki said earlier this month that the dogs were slowly adjusting to their new surroundings at the White House when the incident occurred.

"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, which was handled by the White House Medical Unit with no further treatment needed," she said at the time, adding that the dogs would return to the White House soon.

Biden also defended Major's actions earlier this month, saying in an interview that the dog, believed to be the first shelter rescue to live at the White House, did not "bite someone and penetrate the skin." 

"I didn't banish him to home. Jill was going to be away for four days. I was going to be away for two, so we took him home," Biden said.

Major and Champ are the first dogs to live in the White House since former President Obama's dogs Bo and Sunny.
