If you need a pick me up today, we've got a story for you -- a story about a special boy and a special dog who were destined for each other.
The Jackson County Animal Shelter introduced us to Bentley, a 2-year-old boy, who was born with a cleft lip, and a smile that will brighten a room.
Bentley finally met his match when he adopted a pup that also has a cleft lip.
Viral photos posted on Facebook show the special bond the boy and his dog already have.
"We wish many years of joy as this special pair grow up together," wrote the Jackson County Animal Shelter.
