Joe Biden shows off his boot after fracturing his foot while playing with his German Shepherd

JOE BIDEN appeared to be in good health on Sunday as he held up a boot days after he fractured his foot while playing with his German shepherd.

The 78-year-old President-elect was seen wearing his typical navy blue suit with a cast on his right foot outside The Queen theater in Delaware on Tuesday.

He appeared at the venue in Wilmington to formally unveil his six-person economic team, a core group that includes veterans from previous Democratic administrations and historic firsts.

Biden will be forced to wear the protective boot for "several weeks" after x-rays revealed a "hairline fracture" in his foot.

Journalists assigned to Biden first revealed the injury on Sunday.

"On Saturday Nov. 28, President-elect Biden slipped while playing with his dog Major, and twisted his ankle," a pool report said.

"Out of an abundance of caution, he will be examined this afternoon by an orthopedist."

In a statement to MSNBC, Dr Kevin O'Connor said: "Follow-up CT scan confirmed hairline (small) fractures of President-elect Biden’s lateral and intermediate cuneiform bones, which are in the mid-foot."

After an initial examination, Biden was sent to an orthopedist for a CT scan, which revealed the fracture.

Soon after, President Donald Trump sent Biden his well wishes on Twitter and shared an NBC clip of the Democrats leaving the clinic.

"Get well soon!" Trump said.

According to the Delaware Humane society, the former vice president and his wife Dr Jill Biden got to know Major while fostering him.

The animal-loving couple – who also own a German shepherd called Champ, 12 – adopted Major in 2018, a few months before Biden announced his presidential run.

He was one of six puppies brought to a shelter “after being exposed to something toxic” in their previous home, reported the Washington Post.

The adorable pooch will become the first shelter dog to live at the White House when the Bidens move in on January 20.

Trump was the first American president in a century not to bring a pet into the White House.

Speaking at a rally in Texas last year, Trump said he didn't “have any time” for a pet and that he thought owning one “feels a little phony."
