Biden’s Dog Commander Bites Secret Service Member — Again

 President Joe Biden‘s dog Commander bit a member of the Secret Service in yet another incident, the agency confirmed on Tuesday.

Steven Kopek, a spokesman for the Secret Service, said a Secret Service Uniformed Division police officer “came in contact with a first family pet and was bitten” around 8 p.m. on Monday.

“The officer was treated by medical personnel on complex,” Kopek noted, adding that the officer spoke with Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle on Tuesday and is doing alright, according to CNN.

Commander, who is the first family’s 2-year-old German Shepard, already developed a reputation for biting after being welcomed into the first family in December 2021.

Information obtained by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch showed the canine bit seven people in a four-month period from September 2022 through January 2023 and one Secret Service agent even got sent to the hospital, per the New York Post.

This week’s biting is reported to be at least the 11th known incident involving Commander spanning from the White House to Delaware. It had some of Biden’s most vocal critics howling.

“The Biden family doesn’t care one whit about the danger this out-of-control dog poses!” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton exclaimed in a post to X.

“Are the Biden family’s Secret Service agents supposed to just accept being attacked by their disturbed dog as part of the job?” asked New York Post columnist Miranda Devine.


Elizabeth Alexander, the communications director for first lady Jill Biden, told The New York Times that the White House “can be a stressful environment for family pets” and the first family “continues to work on ways to help Commander handle the often unpredictable nature of the White House grounds.”

The “president and first lady are incredibly grateful to the Secret Service and Executive Residence staff for all they do to keep them, their family, and the country safe,” Alexander also said.

President Biden has been dogged by negative pet stories for years. He had another German Shepard named Major who also got in trouble for biting. The commander in chief even hurt his ankle after falling while playing with the dog.

Major was removed from the White House and ultimately got left with family friends.

The Bidens also had a 13-year-old German Shepard, Champ, that died in 2021. In addition, they adopted a cat named Willow.
