Bidens’ dog Commander to make TV debut



US President Joe Biden’s puppy Commander will make his TV debut on Super Bowl Sunday.

The German shepherd and Mr Biden’s wife, Jill, will appear in a advertisement that will air before Sunday’s broadcast of Puppy Bowl XVIII.

The first lady’s office shared the video to social media on Thursday (local time).

Both contests will be held on the day before Valentine’s Day, which is Monday.

“Hi there. I’m Jill Biden, here at the White House with our new puppy Commander,” the first lady says.

“You know, Valentine’s Day is one of my favourite holidays because it’s all about love.”

The First Lady, wearing a grey polo-neck jumper with “AMOUR” in pink letters across the front, is seated in the White House movie theatre with Commander by her side.

“What’s so wonderful about having pets is they bring us unconditional love, joy and comfort every day,” she says.

“All of us are wishing you a very happy Valentine’s Day.”

Other footage in the ad shows the two frolicking in a White House hallway.

Last year, Mrs Biden filmed a public service announcement focused on mask-wearing in a pandemic to air during Puppy Bowl XVII. She was surrounded in that ad by the family’s German shepherds, Champ and Major.

Champ died last year. Major now lives in Delaware after behaving aggressively at the White House.

The Bidens recently welcomed a cat named Willow to the White House.

The Super Bowl will air in Australia on Monday from 10am AEDT on the Seven Network.
