President-elect Joe Biden slipped and twisted his ankle while playing with his dog Major, his office said Sunday.
The 78-year-old Democrat will be examined by an orthopedist on Sunday “out of an abundance of caution” following Saturday’s incident, the brief statement said.
Biden and his wife, Jill Biden, adopted Major from the Delaware Humane Association in 2018.
The playful pooch is set to make history as the first rescue dog in the White House.
He’s one of the couple’s two German shepherds, along with Champ, who they’ve had since 2008.
The Bidens are also reportedly planning on acquiring a cat to join them in the People’s House after Inauguration Day in January.
