PRESIDENT Joe Biden welcomed a new pooch into The White House.
The introduction of the Bidens' new dog comes just days after their dog Major was sent off to live with family friends following multiple biting incidents.
Did Joe Biden get a new dog?
On December 20, 2021, Biden announced he got a new four-legged friend on Twitter.
“Welcome to the White House, Commander," Biden tweeted along with a photo of the new puppy with a ball in its mouth.
Commander was brought in to replace his pup Major, who was sent away from the White House following several biting incidents.

How many dogs does Joe Biden have?
Before the arrival of his new dog Commander, Joe Biden already owned two German shepherds named Major and Champ when he moved into the White House in 2020.
However, Champ passed away on June 19, 2021, leaving Major as the only dog in the White House.
In announcing the demise of Champ, the Biden family stated: "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.
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."
Furthermore, Major has also been living away from the White House, because of some signs of aggressive behavior.
"After consulting with dog trainers, animal behaviorists, and veterinarians, the first family has decided to follow the experts' collective recommendation that it would be safest for Major to live in a quieter environment with family friends," Jill Biden's press secretary Michael LaRosa said in a statement.
Thus, the only dog currently at the White House is their new dog, Commander.
Does Joe Biden adopt or buy his dogs?
On Joe Biden's 79th birthday on November 20, 2021, the president's brother, James Biden, and his sister-in-law, Sara Biden, gave Commander to him as a birthday gift.
Commander was born on September 1, 2021, and officially arrived at the White House on Monday 20, December 2021.
It's unclear how Biden came to own Champ, but Major was adopted from the Delaware Humane Association on 17 November 2018, and became the first shelter dog to reside in the White House.
