Biden’s Dog’s Aggression Worse Than Reported, Insiders Say

After causing another stir in the White House and getting removed due to aggressive behavior, insiders have revealed that the disruption caused by President Biden’s dog Commander is significantly worse than previously reported.

According to insiders who spoke with The New York Times, Commander’s actions have been more alarming than previously disclosed. In one particularly concerning incident, Commander bit a Secret Service member so severely that the victim bled on the floor and had to be rushed to the hospital for treatment.

This marked the 11th known incident of Commander biting White House personnel.

While conservative legal activist group Judicial Watch had previously obtained reports of the 10 previous biting incidents involving Commander from October 2022 to January 2023, CNN reported that there were more biting incidents that went unreported, indicating a higher real number. 

According to the New York Times, the total number of Commander’s aggressive incidents may have been closer to two or three dozen.

It wasn’t until calls were made for the dog’s removal after the 11th reported incident that the Bidens decided to take steps to ensure the safety of White House personnel by removing him from the White House premises. The two-year-old dog is now reportedly in an undisclosed dog house.

After CNN’s report, the Communications Director for First Lady Jill Biden, Elizabeth Alexander, stated, “The president and first lady care deeply about the safety of those who work at the White House and those who protect them every day. They remain grateful for the patience and support of the U.S. Secret Service and all involved as they continue to work through solutions.”

“Commander is not presently on the White House campus while next steps are evaluated,” she added.

In the past, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre had tried to explain away Commander’s behavior by attributing it to the unique and stressful environment of the White House.

“As you all know, the White House complex can be unique and very stressful. And that is something I’m sure you all can understand. And — and it is — as I just said, is — it is unique and it is stressful for all of us, so you can imagine what it’s like for a family pet and family pets, more — more broadly,” she said in a press briefing in July.

Critics however have a different explanation as many have blamed the dog’s aggressiveness on the vicious treatment he is subjected to by Biden, who has been seen in public kicking the dog.


This incident is not the first time a Biden family dog has exhibited aggressive behavior. Prior to Commander, their dog Major, also a German shepherd, displayed similar behavior, including biting Secret Service and White House staff. Major was eventually sent to live with friends in Delaware, making him the first rescue dog to have lived at the White House. 

The fate of Commander remains uncertain, with no confirmation of his current whereabouts or nothing to suggest that he has been rehomed.
