President Joe Biden’s Dog, Commander, a 2-year-old German Shepard, has bitten his 11th Secret Service Agent in the last two years at the White House Monday night.
USSS chief of communications Anthony Guglielmi announced the incident on Tuesday, “Yesterday around 8 p.m., 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.”
Last year in November, Commander bit a Secret Service Agent, sending him to the hospital after biting their arms and thighs.
In another incident a month before the hospitalization, Commander had charged at a Secret Service Agent, with Jill Biden being unable to control Commander.
Commander is not the first Biden dog to bite Secret Service members. In 2021, Major Biden, a German Shepherd and the older of the two Biden dogs, also bit a Secret Service Member. After the incident, Major was sent to live with a family friend in Delaware.
Commander and Major are not the first dogs to bite Secret Service members. Ironically, Major Roosevelt, a German Shepherd owned by Franklin D. Roosevelt, also had their fair share of biting incidents, which resulted in Major being sent home to New York.
