President-elect Joe Biden has injured his right foot, slipping and twisting his ankle while playing with his dog Major on Saturday, his office said Sunday. After visiting an orthopedic specialist in Newark, Delaware, and then a nearby facility for a CT scan, Biden was found to have a hairline fracture in his lateral and intermediate cuneiform bones in the middle of his right foot, his doctor, Kevin O'Connor, said Sunday night. "It is anticipated that he will likely require a walking boot for several weeks." Major is one of the Bidens' two German shepherds, and he will be the first rescue dog in the White House when they move in. The future first couple have also said they plan to get a White House cat.
