On Wednesday, the Biden administration confirmed that Joe and Jill had made the decision to move their dog, Commander, out of the White House in response to repeated attacks on Secret Service agents. Commander bit the agents at least 24 different times. 

The 2-year-old german shepherd was handed over to relatives of the first family months ago, the same fate that befell the Bidens' previous dog, Major.

"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," Jill Biden's spokeswoman Elizabeth Alexander said in a statement. "Despite additional dog training, leashing, working with veterinarians, and consulting with animal behaviorists, the White House environment simply proved too much for Commander."

She verified that, "since the fall, he has lived with other family members."

There have been a dozen recorded instances of Commander terrorizing members of Biden's team, and while in most cases the injuries sustained were minor, some were more serious.

In July 2023, for example, a Secret Service agent was bitten so badly that they required stitches.

According to an incident report obtained by the New York Post, the agent "heard the voice of what [they] believes to be FLOTUS Dr. Jill Biden yelling '[redacted quote].' Commander ran towards the direction of post [redacted] booth and bit [the agent] in the left forearm, [c]ausing a severe deep open wound."

"As [a] result of the attack," the report continued, "[the agent] started to loose a significant amount of blood from [their] arm. [The agent] remained calm and walked away from the area looking for help … [The agent] received six stitches in the left hand forearm and antibiotics for the wound."

In a statement, Secret Service spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said the agency "takes the safety and wellbeing of our employees extremely seriously, and has been navigating how to best operate in an environment that includes family pets for many Presidential administrations."

"The incidents involving Commander were treated as workplace injuries," he added, "with events documented in accordance with Secret Service and US Department of Homeland Security guidelines. While Secret Service personnel neither handle nor care for the first family's pets, we work continuously with all applicable entities in order to minimize any adverse impacts from family pets."
