Joe and Jill Biden’s dogs are about to take over not only the White House, but social media, as well.
Champ and Major, both German shepherds, launched Twitter and Instagram accounts, letting fans know that the pair is excited to explore 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Their first post read: “Hello America! Hello world! It’s us, Champ and Major. We are the Bidens’ family puppers and First Dogs Elect(s) of USA. We want to thank you all for your suppawrt by sharing our pawsidential adventures here! Woof! Woof!”
Though Champ has lived in the White House before, when the president-elect served as vice president under President Barack Obama, this will be Major’s first time at the nation’s most recognizable home, making him the first rescue dog to live there.
And, after four years of no White House dogs, canine fans have reacted enthusiastically to their imminent return.
It's a happier, more beautiful world when doggies live in the White House. 🐶💙🇺🇸

Hi Champ and Major. I'm Jasper. My hooman said I could put my picture on, so here I am. My house is a lot smaller than your new one, but I have some nooks and crannies where I hide, especially when those nasty fireworks go off. My hoomans love me lots and lots too, like yours do. pic.twitter.com/nyr420MdTX
