Biden’s Dogs have reportedly attacked Secret Service agents up to ten times in less than a year

Between October 2022 and January 2023, President Joe Biden’s dog, Commander, allegedly attacked Secret Service agents up to 10 times, necessitating hospital treatment for an agent in one instance.

The Department of Homeland Security released records of these incidents following a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request from Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group.

Secret Service email exposes Commander’s aggressive behavior

On November 3, 2022, a Secret Service email revealed Commander bit an officer on the upper right arm and thigh.

The victim used a steel cart as a shield to prevent a second assault. Post-incident, the officer was prescribed several days of restricted duty by doctors. The Division Uniform Captain emailed that Commander’s vaccinations were up-to-date.

Concerns arise over White House’s handling family pets

Questions have arisen about the decision to bring another German Shepherd to the White House and why the attacks continued. Secret Service Chief Spokesperson, Anthony Guglielmi, stated they prioritize employee safety and welfare and are determining the best approach to dealing with family pets.

The family pets are typically cared for by the chief White House groundskeeper.

Revelations of downplayed incidents involving Biden’s dogs spark controversy

Previously in 2021, Major was involved in two significant biting incidents. Secret Service agents later accused the White House of downplaying the events.

Documents released under FOIA reveal an agent was reprimanded for describing an attack, feared to upset the Bidens. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki had claimed one attack occurred because Major was “surprised by an unfamiliar person.”

However, according to unsealed documents, Major’s bite came after eight consecutive days of biting agents and severe injuries. One agent was irritated by Psaki’s comment, believing they hadn’t surprised the dog.

An incident report described a ‘severe’ injury inflicted without provocation in the residential area near the First Lady’s office. Major’s bark and subsequent bite caught the agent off guard.
