O’Donnell is a political reporter who had been covering Donald Trump’s visit to his golf course in West Palm Beach, Florida, over the weekend – his 16th such trip in just over 11 weeks.
It is understood the German Shepherd was a Secret Service dog and part of the president’s security team.
Inevitably, O’Donnell’s post sparked a slew of bad dog jokes on Twitter.
