Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Adorable New Puppy Is Making Everyone Swoon

The New York lawmaker unveiled the new addition to her family on Instagram.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has unveiled a brand new member of her family — an adorable puppy.

“So we just did something big,” the lawmaker revealed in an Instagram story on Monday. She then introduced the cute canine, who is believed to be a French Bulldog. “Hey boo boo. Hi. Welcome to our family,” she said in the clip, above.

Ocasio-Cortez wrote she was thinking of naming the dog “something Star Trek related or Bronx/Queens/NYC/social good related.”

On Twitter, she explained “the goal is to train him to be a community pup.”

“Ideally we want to work to the point where he can enjoy town halls, be an Amtrak pup, come to the office, etc.,” Ocasio-Cortez added.

It’s unclear where Ocasio-Cortez got the dog from. Her office did not immediately reply to HuffPost’s request for further information.

The pooch received a warm welcome on social media, where many owners responded by sharing snaps of their own pups:
