FOX6 News has learned President Obama’s four-year-old dog, Sunny, bit a family friend visiting the White House on Monday, January 9th — according to TMZ.
TMZ says sources of the girl who was bitten tell them she went to pet and kiss Sunny, and the dog “bit her on the face.” Leaving a pretty large and bloody gash.
According to TMZ, Obamas’ family physician checked the girl out and decided she needed stitches. She will be OK, but will likely have a small scar — TMZ says this is upsetting to the girl.
Four-year-old Sunny is a female Portuguese Water Dog. The bite is out of character for the breed, as they are typically not aggressive in family settings.
The Obamas own two Portuguese Water Dogs — eight-year-old “Bo” has the title, “First Dog.”
The White House has not commented as of yet.
