Secret Service dogs who nabbed White House fence jumper back in action

Hurricane and Jordan, the Secret Service dogs who were injured while stopping the White House fence jumper Wednesday, have been cleared to return to duty.

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."

Dominic Adesanya, the 23-year-old who police say hopped the White House fence, was released from the hospital, but is still in custody. He was attacked by the dogs as soon as he jumped over the fence, and was filmed kicking one of the dogs and wrestling the other.
