President Barack Obama and his family have welcomed their new dog Bo to the White House, and they’re showing him off around the grounds.

The 6-month-old Portuguese water dog made his debut Tuesday afternoon in front of reporters and photographers. And the Obamas even walked him over near the fence on the White House South Lawn.

“I finally got a friend,” President Obama joked.

Said the president: “He’s got star quality.”

First lady Michelle Obama did most of the walking, with Bo on a leash. But daughter Malia took a turn, too, as Bo took off running. “I love him, he’s perfect,” she said.
