A dog so happy that he’ll make you want to do a little dance, Tik Tok arrived at ARK last summer after his owner passed away.

He was pretty lonely at first, naturally, but Tik Tok has adjusted well to his new surroundings and like any modern-day influencer always shows himself at his best. He is too photogenic a dog to be left in the kennels at ARK, this guy belongs in your social media posts!

Tik Tok weighs just over 14 kilograms and at 13 he’s not a pup anymore, but he’s still young at heart. He’s also a bit shy at first, but once he gets to know you the staff at ARK say he is “super friendly, affectionate and playful.”

Handsome and healthy, Tik Tok is also good with other dogs, doesn’t mind shampoos and, incredibly, doesn’t mind a trip to the vet. Dogs don’t really come much better than this and, unlike the social media app TikTok that’s popular with Gen Z, this guy doesn’t care how trendy you are.
