Move over Barney, there's a new dog in the presidential circle!

Vice President-elect Joe Biden has bought a six-week-old German Shepherd puppy, making good on his wife's promise that he could buy a dog if he and Barack Obama won the White House.

"[Joe] was very gracious," Pennsylvania breeder Linda Brown told People Pets. "He hugged and kissed all of the shepherds."

The puppy, which is to be named by Biden's grandchildren, will join him after being trained by dog trainer Mark Tobin -- whose dogs beefed up Joe's security on the campaign trail.

Barney the Scottish Terrier is the Bush family's precious pooch, but his cuteness is rivaled by Biden's new German Shepherd pup!
