December 21, 2021: US President Joe Biden has a new ‘Commander’ by his side. But it is not a human. It is a cute and energetic German shepherd pup. The president and First Lady Jill Biden have welcomed home a pure-bred German shepherd and added to their pet family.



Commander was seen playing on the South Lawn of the White House. Commander is a birthday gift to the President from his brother James Biden and sister-in-law Sara Biden. The US President celebrated his 79th birthday on November 20.



Commander was born on September 1 and arrived to the White House on Monday afternoon.



The Bidens have always had dogs as pets. Their beloved German shepherd, Champ, died in June this year at the age of 13. Their other German shepherd, a rescue named Major, has been living mostly in Wilmington, Delaware, after a handful of aggressive incidents involving staff at the White House.



The Bidens are planning to expand their pet family by bringing in a cat.
