123 Sesame Street is getting a new resident! Sesame Street will soon be home to Elmo’s new adopted puppy, Tango.

In a new 30-minute special airing on HBO Max, Furry Friends Forever: Elmo Gets a Puppy, Sesame Street watchers will learn how this petite pup found her new home amongst the Muppets. You can already see a sneak peak below!

In the special, Elmo, Grover and Tango meet and head out on an adventure to find her a forever home. The trio will also be joined by Cookie Monster, Abby Cadabby and Oscar the Grouch and will show how Tango got her name.

The sweet puppy is sticking around for future episodes and will serve as a model for kids and how to help with family pets. Littles will see how to properly play and care for a pet, in addition to showing all the love they bring to a family.

Furry Friends Forever: Elmo Gets a Puppy will air on Thurs. Aug. 5 on HBO Max as part of the 52nd season, and will stream on PBS KIDS in 2022.
