The Bidens' 3-year-old German shepherd Major “nipped” a Secret Service agent’s hand Monday, a Secret Service official confirmed to NBC News.

“No skin was broken,” said the official, who described the injury as "extremely minor.”

The agent continued to work that day and has continued working since then, the official said.
