Political Visitors Bitten by Netanyahu's Dog
TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's recently adopted dog Kaiya has sunk her teeth into her new position, biting two visitors at an event on Wednesday, including the husband of the deputy foreign minister.
At a candle-lighting ceremony to mark the Jewish festival of Hannukah, the 10-year-old mixed breed also took a snip at a member of parliament from Netanyahu's Likud party, Reuters reported.
Knesset Member Sharren Haskel, a veterinary nurse, dismissed the incident, telling Army Radio it was "trivial".
Netanyahu's son took the dog in from a rescue home earlier this year.
Netanyahu posted a picture on Twitter in August urging dog-lovers to seek out adult canines to adopt, saying "You won't regret it!".
