Joe and Jill Biden have welcomed a new puppy to the White House.
The offical Twitter account for the US President posted a picture of the adorable looking canine running through the grass with a tennis ball in its mouth.
"Welcome to the White House, Commander," the 79-year-old said.
The German Shepherd is the third dog to be living in the White House during the Biden Administration after the President and First Lady brought Champ and Major when they first moved in.
Commander's induction into the White House comes after the Presidential couple lost their dog Champ six months ago.
Dr Jill Biden revealed in a social media post that the dog had passed away in June.
She wrote: "Our hearts are heavy today as we let you all know that our beloved German Shepherd, Champ, passed away peacefully at home.
"He was our constant, cherished companion during the last 13 years and was adored by the entire Biden family.
"Even as Champ's strength waned in his last months, when we came in to a room he would immediately pull himself up, his tail always wagging and muzzle us for an ear scratch or a belly rub.
"Where we were, he wanted to be and everything was instantly better when he was next to us.
"In our most joyful moments and in our most grief-stricken days, he was there with us, sensitive to our every unspoken feeling and emotion.
"We love our sweet, good boy and will miss him always."
Major has also been absent from the White House since moving into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue because he needed more training.
There was at least one instance of the dog biting someone at the famous residence and he was taken away to get some lessons on how to behave.
The dog was allowed to come back in March.

Champ had been a member of the pack since 2008, while Major joined them in 2018.
Joe and Jill fostered Major at first when their daughter showed them a litter of puppies needing to be temporarily homed. Naturally, the pair became somewhat set on Major and adopted him from the Delaware Humane Association (DHA).
When the Bidens brought Champ and Major into the White House, they were the first US Presidential couple to have rescue dogs.
Conversely Donald Trump was the first president in more than 100 years not to have a pet in office, meaning the White House has been without animals since Obama left the gaff four years ago.
