PRESIDENT Joe Biden's dog, Commander, has reportedly been removed from the White House after multiple biting incidents.
The pup was rescued by the president and First Lady Jill Biden after their other dog, Major, was also reportedly removed for similar aggressive behavior.
The removal comes after Commander, a two-year-old German shepherd, bit a Secret Service agent in September – the latest in a string of nearly a dozen incidents.
"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," Elizabeth Alexander, communications director for the First Lady, told Fox News.
"They remain grateful for the patience and support of the U.S. Secret Service and all involved, as they continue to work through solutions," Alexander added.
"Commander is not presently on the White House campus while next steps are evaluated."
From October 2022 to January 2023, there were at least 10 documented incidents involving Commander, according to legal activist group Judicial Watch.
One of the more serious instances occurred in November 2022 when a Secret Service agent was bit.
The officer was bitten on the arm and thigh and was referred to the hospital for treatment, according to the New York Post.
But there may be even more unreported incidents, according to CNN.
