what’s the deal with dahlias?

My daughter bought dahlia plants for me for Mother's Day. Being in Zone 7 on Long Island are these guys annuals? Can I dig them up and keep them indoors for the fall/winter? Any tips or tricks to keep the big flower heads aloft? Right now they are cute and little, fresh out of their cell packs.
