Prime Minister’s Office rebuffed in bid for Netanyahus’ dog expenses

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Israel won’t pay the expenses for the Netanyahu family dog.

The Ministry of Finance rejected a query  by the Prime Minister’s Office to have the state pay up for Kaia, the Israeli investigative television news program “Uvda,” or “Fact,” reported Monday night, saying the dog is a personal expense.

Kaia, who is 10 years old, was adopted in July by the Netanyahus from a pound that was about to euthanize her.

Last month, the dog bit two guests at a Hanukkah party at the prime minister’s residence in Jerusalem and had to be quarantined.
