President-elect Joe Biden injured himself playing with his dog. Biden slipped while playing with his German Shepherd Major and dislocated his ankle, his office said on Sunday. Accordingly, the accident occurred on Saturday. The 78-year-old should be examined by an orthopedic surgeon on Sunday afternoon (local time) “as a precautionary measure”.

The Bidens have two sheepdogs

Major is a trained rescue dog. Biden and his wife Jill brought the sheepdog out of the shelter in 2018. Major will be the first rescue dog in the White House, according to the Biden team. The Democrat has another German Shepherd: Champ has been with the Bidens since 2008. The Bidens are also reportedly looking to get a cat.

Dogs in the White House have a long history. Barack Obama had the Portuguese water dog Bo, George W. Bush had the Scottish Terrier Barney, and Bill Clinton had the chocolate-colored Labrador Buddy. Donald Trump is the first US president in more than a century without a dog. Biden is due to be sworn in as the new US President on January 20th.
