Major and Champ Biden can officially call the White House home.

President Biden’s pair of pups moved into the executive mansion on Sunday, a White House official tells ITK.

Photos provided by the White House show the German Shepherds looking comfy in their new digs, with one waving a tongue while playfully prancing around the South Lawn. In another snapshot, Jill Biden is seen giving some TLC to one of the family’s canine companions.

Major is making history as the first shelter rescue dog to reside in the White House. The president and first lady adopted him from the Delaware Humane Association in 2018.

The Bidens’ two pooches have amassed a loyal fan following after the four-year absence of a furry first family member at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Former President Trump was the first commander in chief in a century not to own a dog.

While the Bidens moved into the executive mansion last week, ITK hears that they wanted to settle in before having the dogs make the move from Delaware to the nation’s capital.

Champ is said to be enjoying his new dog bed by the fireplace, while Major loves running around on the South Lawn.
