President-elect Joe Biden was injured on Saturday and is expected to be examined by an orthopedist “out of sheer caution,” officials said.
Biden’s team issued a statement saying the 78-year-old had slipped “while playing with his dog Major and sprained his ankle.”
“As a precaution, he will be examined by an orthopedist this afternoon,” his office said.
Major is one of Joe and Jill Biden’s two German Shepherds and will be the first rescue dog to live in the White House. Bidens adopted him from the Delaware Humanitarian Society in 2018. Their other dog, Champ, they have had since 2008.
