Joe Biden family’s two-year-old German Shepherd, Commander has bitten yet another Secret Service agent.
OSUN DEFENDER learnt that the attack happened on Monday night and the officer was treated at the scene, the Secret Service said in a statement on Tuesday.
The medium gathered that yhis is the 11th time the dog has bitten a guard at the White House or the Biden family home, BBC reports.
The White House Press Secretary has previously blamed the attacks on the stress of living at the White House.
“As you all know, the White House complex can be unique and very stressful. That is something I’m sure you can all understand,” she said in July.
“It is unique and it is stressful for all of us. So you can imagine what it’s like for a family pet or family pets, more broadly.”
Commander is the younger of the Biden family’s two German Shepherds. The other biting incidents occurred at the president and first lady’s home in Delaware.
“Yesterday around 8 pm, a Secret Service Uniformed Division police officer came in contact with a First Family pet and was bitten,” said Secret Service spokesman Anthony Guglielmi.
He later told CNN that the injured officer spoke to Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle on Tuesday and is doing OK.
In July, White House officials said they were attempting new leashing and training techniques for Commander, following a rash of attacks on personnel.
