The White House has a new four-legged resident, as the First Family announced they welcomed a second dog in to the family on Monday (August 19).

Michelle Obama posted a snapshot of the newest family member along with the caption “So excited to introduce the newest member of the Obama family—our puppy, Sunny!”

One-year-old Sunny will join the Obama family’s other pooch Bo, who is also a Portuguese water dog, in official duties such as visits to Walter Reed and the Children's National Medical Center.

According to the White House website,"Sunny is the perfect little sister for Bo – full of energy and very affectionate and the First Family picked her name because it fit her cheerful personality.”
