President-elect Joe Biden was hurt playing with his dog Major and will see a doctor “out of an abundance of caution,” his office said Sunday.

Biden slipped and twisted his ankle while playing with Major on Saturday, his office said.

The president-elect will be examined by an orthopedist on Sunday afternoon “out of an abundance of caution.”

The Bidens have said they’d bring Major, along with their other German shepherd, Champ, to the White House with them in January.

They also announced Sunday that they planned to get a cat before moving into 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
