And today in your daily dose of cuteness, let us present to you a rescue dog named Pikelet.

According to his Facebook page, “at approx 5-6 weeks old Pikelet was saved from a council pound on death row in poor health with deformed legs and a curved spine. Big Dog Rescue (based in NSW, Australia) rescued and placed Pikelet into foster care where one month later, after lots of tender loving care, he was adopted by his lucky foster parents.”

He actually, very quickly, became a celebrity in Australia and since his adoption, became Australia’s “most supreme big foster Brother to needy homeless rescue puppies and a voice for those dumped, abandoned or awaiting their fate at council pounds and shelters.”

Pikelet lives with an entire family of animals — he’s even helped foster little chicks!
