If you’ve ever wished that your toy teddy bear might one day come to life and become your best friend, Bertram is probably the closest real-life example you’ll find.
Bertram is a seven-year-old Pomeranian who is now living his best life, but when he was a puppy, he got a rough start in life. He was considered “too big” for his breeders to sell, and they left him at a shelter in Oklahoma. This cute pup got lucky, though — he was adopted by artist Kathy Grayson after she saw his photos on Petfinder.com, and now, the two are the perfect pair.
Bertram and Kathy’s life together is documented on his very own Instagram page, and over time, the internet has noticed something important about this fluffy dog: he looks like a living teddy bear! That fuzzy brown face, those pretty eyes, and that round nose — he looks too darn cute, and if you don’t believe us, just check out some of his best pics:
