The White House is pet-friendly once again! First Lady Jill Biden posted on her Instagram account that the Biden dogs, Major and Champ Biden have finally arrived at the president's Pennsylvania Avenue home. Dr Jill Biden shared an update on Twitter too: “Champ and Major have joined us in the White House!” The tweet was adorned with red hearts and paw prints. 

“Champ is enjoying his new dog bed by the fireplace and Major loved running around on the South Lawn,” Michael LaRosa, the first lady's spokesman told USA TODAY.

The pets were brought in once the first family settled into the White House. Images have also been shared on the account of the Instagram account of the dogs, which is called firstdogsusa. 

“Awoooof! Friends, I got so excited to finally arrive home and see my parents, that I had to run a bit to get that extra energy out before getting inside, that’s why I’m not in the “group” pawhto. Even my tongue is happy. Champ handled the situation much better. - Major,” the post was captioned. 

Their account has over 12,600 followers. Of the two, Champ is the older dog, aged 12 and goes by the nickname Sr. Major was adopted by the Bidens in 2018 and will be the first rescue to live in the White House. 

While the Trumps had no pets at the White House, the Obamas had two Portuguese water dogs— Sunny and Bo.
