This pawdorable pup was adopted by his human about 6 months ago, right before he was set to be euthanized at a kill shelter in Los Angeles, California.

A strappin’ four-year-old Boxer, Kiss suffers from two neurological disorders that prevent him from pulling his tongue in. However, that hasn’t stopped him from living a normal and happy life.

Dawn Korres, his pawrent, knew that when she saw him, he was the dog for her. And we have no doubt that the feeling was mutual for Kiss.

“His tongue was hanging out, and I was really surprised about it… I knew it in my heart when I saw his picture, and I saw him at the shelter, I knew he was going to be mine, ” Korres tells KGNS.tv

Looks like this lucky pup has settled into a love-filled life in Boulder, Colorado.

Through Kiss’s fame, Korres hopes to spread the word that differently abled dogs are just as special and adoptable as other dogs. And we agree!
