First dogs Champ and Major Biden, the family’s pair of German Shepherds, have officially moved into the White House.

Champ, 12, and Major, 3, spent the first week of their dad’s administration back in their family’s Wilmington, Del., home as their parents settled into the executive mansion, First Lady Jill Biden’s office said.

The two dogs were reunited with the first lady and President Biden on Sunday.

Since moving in, Champ has been “enjoying his new dog bed by the fireplace,” while Major has been “running around on the South Lawn.”

In photos shared by the White House, the pooches could be seen enjoying their new outdoor surroundings, which the first lady took them around to see for first time.

The pets are the first in the White House since President Barack Obama left office in 2017 and moved to a DC neighborhood nearby with his Portuguese water dogs, Bo and Sunny.

The two dogs won’t be the only pets in the People’s House. The Bidens told CBS Sunday Morning shortly after the November election that they planned to adopt a cat.

When asked about the incoming feline friend on Sunday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said she too wanted to know when the cat would arrive.

“I’m also wondering about the cat, because the cat is going to dominate the internet whenever the cat is announced and wherever that cat is found,” she said in a video posted to Twitter Sunday.
