(CNN) — There’s a new Obama in town.  Sunny – a female Portuguese Water Dog – is joining Bo as “first pet,” the White House announced Monday.

Photos showed the all-black animal roaming the White House North Lawn with what appeared to be a pink flamingo dog toy.

Bo, a male of the same breed, came to the White House shortly after the Obamas first arrived at the White House in 2009. The coats of Portuguese Water Dogs are hypoallergenic, meaning Sunny and Bo won’t affect first daughter Malia’s canine allergies.
