A second German shepherd finds himself banished from the White House because of repeated bite incidents. According to sources, President Biden’s shepherd, Commander, will no longer be residing at the White House because he keeps biting Secret Service agents.
The most recent incident happened on Sept. 25 and resulted in the need for the victim to receive medical attention. The writing was on the wall earlier this summer when it was reported that the two-year-old dog had bitten multiple people, sending at least one uniformed officer to the hospital. When the information about Commander’s behavior issues was released in July, a White House spokesperson said that he would be undergoing additional training.
Commander’s concerning behavior is a troubling repeat of the problems the Bidens encountered with their former shepherd, Major, who was ousted from the White House after biting several people.
In a statement to CNN Elizabeth Alexander, first lady Jill Biden’s spokesperson, said:
“Commander is not presently on the White House campus while next steps are evaluated,” adding that the Bidens, ” remain grateful for the patience and support of the U.S. Secret Service and all involved, as they continue to work through solutions.”
No word on where Commander is at this time, or if he will be allowed to return to the White House.
