The Bidens officially adopted Major from the Delaware Humane Association on Saturday after fostering him.

Major came to the DHA as a puppy with his five siblings after the puppies encountered something toxic in their home, the group said. Their owners surrendered them to the group to save their lives.

The puppies were saved, thanks to the work of a local veterinary emergency center. All six have been adopted.

The group's executive director, Patrick Carroll, said it was an "honor" to help the former veep find his new family member.

"We make friends for life at DHA, and we know that the bond between humans and their pets is incredibly strong," he said. "We have adopted thousands of animals into homes in Delaware, and we are happy to add the vice president and his family to our list.”

After a photo shoot with shelter staff, Major headed off to his forever home.

Many people think he is the perfect companion for the former VP.

Joe Biden and his new (very good) pup Major are like a top five humans-matching-their-dogs moment of all time.

"Biden looks like he just realized that he adopted the canine version of himself," Franklin Leonard tweeted.

Two peas in a pod.

Oh my God Joe Biden adopted a rescue dog. And Obama's like "Damn I know that big goofy expression from somewhere..."

Others said it seems like Major is VERY happy to be a Biden.

This dog getting adopted by Joe Biden is making the same face Leslie Knope made when she met Joe Biden.
