President-Elect Joe Biden Fractures Foot While Playing w/ Dog

President-elect Joe Biden fractured his right foot while playing with one of his dogs, an injury discovered in a scan Sunday and that will likely require him to wear a boot for several weeks, his doctor said.

On Jan. 20, 2021, Biden will be sworn in as the oldest commander-in-chief in US history.

The senior leadership of the committee, which will be responsible for organizing inauguration-related activities, consists of CEO Tony Allen and executive director Maju Varghese.

Initial X-rays did not show a break, but the diagnosis changed following a CT scan.

On Sunday evening, he was seen walking with a slight limp to an SUV which took him to the Delaware Imaging Network for the CT scan.

According to reports, Biden had been playing with his dog Major when he slipped and injured his foot.

Major - who was adopted from the Delaware Humane Association in November 2018, 10 years after the couple welcomed German shepherd Champ - will also make history as the first shelter dog to live at the White House.

The president-elect and his wife, Jill Biden, fostered Major from a dog shelter in DE and made his adoption official in November 2018. "I've had German shepherds from the time I was a kid". Champ joined the Biden family during the presidential transition in December 2008, after Biden became vice president-elect.

Donald Trump is one of the few American presidents not to have had a pet while at the White House.

Allen is president of Delaware State University, and Varghese served as chief operating officer and senior adviser to the Biden-Harris campaign.
