The Obama family’s dog, Sunny, bit the face of an 18-year-old girl visiting the White House earlier this week. The guest, a family friend of the Obamas, had to get stitches as a result. See the photo below.

The incident occurred on Monday when President Barack Obama’s female Portuguese Water Dog attacked the teenage girl while she attempted to kiss it. According to TMZ, White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson examined the girl’s injury and decided she needed stitches. She’ll be alright, but will likely have a small scar on her cheek.

Sunny is one of two Portuguese Water Dogs owned by the Obamas. The First Family also has an eight-year-old male dog named Bo, who has received the title of “First Dog.” The Obama family has brought their beloved dogs to many political and social events throughout the years, and often walk them around the White House lawn.

In fact, Sunny has previously attended events where she happily played with young children. It’s unclear why the dog, typically known to be a friendly breed, snapped at the teenage girl on Monday. Gossip Cop has reached out to the White House for a comment about the incident, but we’ve yet to hear back. See the bite photo below.
