White House Dogs Return to Duty After Scuffle With Intruder

Oct 23, 2014

The two Secret Service dogs that brawled with a man who allegedly jumped over the White House fence Wednesday evening have been cleared to return to duty, the agency said Thursday.

Hurricane and Jordan suffered minor bruising from the incident. A video posted by Fox News shows the alleged intruder, Dominic Adesanya kicking Jordan before being tackled by Hurricane. Adesanya then proceeded to repeatedly punch Hurricane, according to a criminal complaint. Adesanya has been charged with two counts of assaulting a K-9 police officer—a felony—as well as resisting arrest, making threats and unlawful entry.

Hurricane and Jordan returned to work on Thursday. When they're not patrolling the White House grounds, Hurricane likes playing with his Kong Toy and Jordan enjoys taking strolls.
