Service dog getting his caricature drawn at Disneyland as part of training is just too cute

in Disneyland, Disneyland Resort

Okay, this is just too cute for words but I’ll try my best.

Twitter user @cutiechaser_ posted this picture from Disneyland of a service dog named Yahoo that unsurprisingly has gone viral. As part of his training, the dog got his caricature drawn up by an artist there and the finished product is just as adorable as Yahoo is.

According to Buzzfeed, Yahoo’s volunteer has been teaching the dog “basic obedience and socialization tricks before he graduates on to professional training to one day help a person with disabilities. Yahoo is a part of Canine Companions for Independence, a nonprofit organization that helps breed and train assistance dogs, who are then offered to people with disabilities for no cost.”

Sounds like the perfect place for service dogs to get their training amid such a hectic environment with tons of distractions but have a little fun as well.

“This type of socialization gives them the confidence to go to such places with their graduate partners in the future,” Yahoo’s volunteer told Buzzfeed.

Buzzfeed even got their hands on the finished portrait. Excuse me while I cry tears of joy.

    We were there the day the characteristics drew these pictures. They turned out amazing and the dogs were well behaved. He drew our family picture right after. Loved those service dogs though!
