A media report on Thursday in Jerusalem said the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, was embarrassed as his dog bit two guests at a Hanukkah party at his office.
The report said that the dog, named Kaia, bit a deputy of Netanyahu’s Likud Party, as well as the husband of Deputy Foreign Minister, Zipi Chotoveli, at the party.
It added that the dog was apparently overexcited by the noise of the party when she bit the two guests.
It said Netanyahu had tendered unreserved apology to the two victims.
The report disclosed that Netanyahu’s family adopted Kaia after the prime minister’s son, Avner, had heard that the 10-year-old dog was to be put down.
