(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – In a recent event highlighting concerns about Joe Biden’s treatment of the law enforcement personnel safeguarding him, the president’s dog, Commander, has been reported to have bitten an 11th U.S. Secret Service agent.
Specialists in dog training have attributed this to Biden, stating that the president has not adequately trained Commander. They emphasize that any average American would face significant legal consequences if their pet had a record of attacking individuals on 11 separate occasions.
A video regarding the incident can be viewed below.
As conveyed by the USSS head of communications, Anthony Guglielmi, the most recent event in which Biden’s German Shepherd had an altercation with an agent was on Monday.
“Yesterday around 8 p.m., a Secret Service Uniformed Division police officer came in contact with a first family pet and was bitten. The officer was treated by medical personnel on complex,” he shared with CNN, a statement later referenced by The New York Post.
The affected security officer is in good health and discussed the situation with Secret Service Chief Kimberly Cheatle.
This recent episode with the president’s two-year-old canine arose shortly after it was revealed through internal Secret Service reports that Commander had previously bitten ten agents.
These incidents reportedly occurred between October 2022 and January 2023, within the White House premises and at the president’s Delaware properties.
One of the affected Secret Service agents required hospital care due to lacerations on the arm and thigh.
The German Shepherd, Commander, was a kind gesture from the president’s brother, James Biden, and his wife, Sara Biden.
The addition of Commander to the first family came on the same day Joe Biden had to rehome his former dog, Major, with close acquaintances, given its history of biting several Secret Service agents shortly after Biden assumed office in January 2021.
Based on the documents from the Secret Service, seven out of the total victims faced aggression from Commander within the first four months right after Major left the White House.
Several victims claimed that Commander acted aggressively without any apparent cause, making them resort to using nearby objects like chains and chairs to fend off further harm.
“The 11 documented attacks are likely just the tip of the iceberg for the dog’s disturbing behavior — the internal correspondence didn’t include Commander’s first nine months at the White House or the last nine months of 2023,” notes The Post.
Back in July, it was announced by White House representatives that there would be revised “leashing protocols” for Commander.
According to former USSS agent Jonathan Wackrow’s statement to CNN, “This isn’t a Secret Service thing. This is a workplace safety issue… One time, you can say it’s an accident, but now multiple incidents, it’s a serious issue.”
