President Joe Biden’s dog Major was spotted on the White House lawn this morning after biting a second person this week, sparking calls for euthanasia.

Major, a 3-year rescue mission, was held on a leash when assistants took him and his brother Champ to the White House South Lawn for a walk.

It came a day after it was revealed that Major had smothered a second person within a month.

After the first incident involving a Secret Service agent in early March, Major and his sibling Champ were returned to Biden’s Delaware home.

The two dogs had only just returned to the White House last week before Monday’s second biting incident occurred.

Major, a 3-year rescue mission, was held on a leash when aides took him and his brother Champ to the South Lawn White House for a walk on Wednesday morning.

The First Lady’s press secretary Michael LaRosa revealed that Major had “ smothered someone on a walk ” Monday, adding that the dog is “ still adjusting to his new environment. ”

The person, a National Park Service employee, was treated by the White House Medical Unit “with an abundance of caution” and returned to work without injury.

Major had been spotted by reporters walking around the South Lawn before Biden and First Lady Jill traveled to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial early Monday evening.

It came three weeks after the first biting incident, which occurred on March 8, when a Secret Service agent sustained a minor injury.

Major and Champ, who is 12, were immediately transferred to Bidens’s Delaware home after the incident where the president said the pup was undergoing training.

The second incident sparked calls for euthanasia from Major.

Among them was Joe Scarborough of MSNBC who repeatedly suggested on Tuesday on his show Morning Joe that Major be sent to “ dog Jesus. ”

Others on Twitter said they would be forced to put their dogs down if the animals bit even one person.

After the first incident, Biden disputed the idea that the pup was banned after the incident.

He said the dogs were going to Wilmington because the first pair would be out of town.

‘I didn’t ban him home. Jill would be gone for four days. I was going to stay away for two, so we took him home, ”Biden said at the time.

The dogs met the Bidens two weekends ago at Camp David in Maryland and returned to Washington on March 21.

Last week, one of the two German Shepherds was waiting on the White House balcony when Marine One landed on the South Lawn, after recalling the president from a speech in Columbus, Ohio.

“The dogs will come and go and it won’t be uncommon for them to go back to Delaware every now and then, as the president and first lady often do,” said White House press secretary Jen Psaki.

The president adopted Major from the Delaware Humane Society in 2018 after serving as vice president under former President Barack Obama.

Biden’s other dog Champ is an old hand from Washington who joined the family in 2008 when Biden was elected vice president.
