This famous pup will melt your heart.

It can be difficult to compete with Instagram-famous pooches like Doug the Pug and Jiffpom, but that doesn’t seem to be a problem for Norbert the Dog. This three-pound furry friend has nearly 700,000 Instagram followers and over 1 million on Facebook, and for good reason: he’s heartwarmingly adorable.

But Norbert’s success doesn’t stop at his handsome looks. He’s a registered therapy dog and spends his time volunteering at the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. Needless to say, he brings joy wherever he goes.
