Hurricane and Jordan

On Wednesday evening, a man who'd leaped the White House fence tried to fight off two Secret Service K-9 guard dogs, Hurricane (left) and Jordan (right). Despite taking punches, the dogs quickly subdued the man, who was charged with assaulting the animals. Hurricane and Jordan were treated by a veterinarian and cleared for duty.
