WEST MONROE, Louisiana — One school’s yearbook photo has some people doing a double take, all because of the adorable pup pictured on the pages.

Presley, a 5-year-old service dog, has been going to school with Seph Ware, 14, every day for several years.

According to ABC News, the teen has a progressive genetic muscle disorder called Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Presley helps him with things like picking up items off the floor, opening and closing doors, and turning the lights on and off.

Seph’s school, Good Hope Middle School in West Monroe, Louisiana, asked Seph if he wanted to have his service dog pose for a yearbook photo.  When he said “sure,” Presley struck a pose with the leash in her mouth. Seph’s mom, Lori Ware, told ABC News, “Presley, since the day we met her, will carry her leash in her mouth. We just say she likes to walk herself, so it’s no surprise she’s got it in the photo, too.”

The sweet photo has gone viral since it was posted on Facebook and shared thousands of times.
