Dog Bites White House Staff: President Biden’s German Shepherd Sparks Concern
Last Monday, an unsettling incident unfolded at approximately 8:00 pm in the White House when Commander, President Joe Biden’s German Shepherd, displayed aggression and bit a female Secret Service officer. The severity of the injury necessitated the immediate assistance of a medical team.
A spokesperson from the Secret Service later commented that the officers who fell victim to Commander’s sharp fangs appeared untroubled despite the distressing encounter. However, this marks the 11th occurrence where the President’s dog has demonstrated signs of aggression and bitten a White House official.
Commander’s Violent History and the Impact on White House Personnel
In the past four months alone, Commander has attacked and bitten ten White House employees, causing harm to some who required hospitalization. The victims were attended to by the adept White House medical team, who promptly administered first aid to alleviate their discomfort.
President Biden’s second dog, Major, has also exhibited aggressive behavior, having previously bitten a presidential security guard and officials from other departments within the White House.
In response to these concerning incidents, both Major and Commander have been relocated out of the White House to reside with President Biden’s close friends and family in Delaware, where it is hoped they will receive appropriate care and training to address their behavioral issues.
A Troublesome Stint in the White House
Commander, originally a birthday gift from President Biden’s younger brother, had been residing in the White House since December 2021. However, due to the recurring problems and instances of biting officers, he has now been removed from the premises.
The Biden family, aside from their canine companions, also has a cat named Willow.
The frequent aggression displayed by Commander and Major raises concerns about the safety of White House staff and visitors. Efforts must now focus on rehabilitating and addressing the behavioral issues of these dogs to prevent any further incidents.
