Biden’s dog Commander bites another Secret Service agent
President Joe Biden ‘s dog Commander has bitten another Secret Service agent, marking the 11th biting incident at the White House. The 2-year-old German Shepherd bit an agent on Monday evening.
‘Yesterday around 8 pm, a Secret Service Uniformed Division police officer came in contact with a First Family pet and was bitten. The officer was treated by medical personnel on complex,’ USSS chief of communications Anthony Guglielmi said in a statement to DailyMail.com.
The injured officer is doing okay, the Secret Service said. The incident was first reported by CNN. Secret Service emails obtained by Judicial Watch in July revealed the dog had bitten or threatened at least 10 people, making this the 11th biting incident involving the first pet.
One agent was sent to a local hospital after the go bit them on the arm and leg, and one was attacked when Jill Biden let him off his leash. The agent also had to use a steel shield to fend him off from another attack. White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre blamed stress for the dog’s behavior.
‘As you all know, the White House complex can be unique and very stressful. That is something I’m sure you can all understand,’ Jean-Pierre said. ‘It is unique and it is stressful for all of us. So you can imagine what it’s like for a family pet or family pets, more broadly.’ She added that the first family was ‘working through ways to make the situation better for everyone.’
At the time of the released emails in July, the White House said the Bidens were working through new training and leashing protocols for Commander but didn’t detail what they were. Jill Biden’s office did not respond to DailyMail.com’s request for comment about the latest incident. In the batch of emails released in July, Secret Service officers called the dog ‘freaking crazy,’ argued he would have been ‘put down’ if he didn’t belong to the Bidens and said he needed a muzzle.
On November 10, 2022, Jill Biden ‘couldn’t regain control’ of Commander as the dog charged another member of the Secret Service. The same month, the German Shepherd clamped down on an agent’s arm, resulting in him needing to seek medical treatment. The Bidens welcomed Commander to the executive residence as a puppy in December 2021.
