Hurricane, a 6-year-old black Belgian Malinois, and Jordan, a 5-year-old black and tan Belgian Malinois, were both taken to a veterinarian and treated for minor bruising, ABC News reports. On Twitter, the Secret Service shared photos of the dogs, as well as their interests: Hurricane has fun "playing with his Kong toy," while Jordan "enjoys walks around the White House."
