Commander Biden, a dog owned by the Biden family, has attacked many Secret Service personnel. The White House, though, is justifying the persistent “aggressive behavior.”
According to recently revealed emails, the first dog, Commander, a 2-year-old German Shepherd, was involved in at least 10 instances of “aggressive behavior” including biting. At least once, Commander repeatedly bit a Secret Service agent, who was then sent to the hospital.
In reality, six of the reported occurrences needed medical treatment.
And it may even become worse. The emails that Judicial Watch obtained were only sent from October 2022 through January 2023. This implies that instances that have happened since then aren’t counted.
One Secret Service member said, in an email to a colleague that was in the hospital, “If it was not their dog, he would’ve already been put down — freaking clown should have a muzzle.”
In response to the emails, the White House said this week that Commander’s actions were the result of a “stressful” work environment.
“The White House complex may be unusual and quite stressful, as you are all aware. And I know you can all relate to it,” added press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre. “You can only imagine how difficult it must be for a family pet and family pets as it is unusual and distressing for all of us.”
She will not, however, say how many more occurrences there had been since January 2023. She instead directed questions over to the Secret Service.
However, the Secret Service is also withholding information. Anthony Guglielmi, the USSS’s chief of communications, issued a long statement regarding the occurrences but didn’t offer any fresh details, such as the overall number of biting instances.
The second dog belonging to the Biden family with a biting issue in the White House is Commander. Biden moved Major, his first German shepherd, to live with friends in Delaware in 2021.
