Justin Theroux's dog obsession is no secret — the actor, film producer, director, and screenwriter is head-over-heels in love with his beloved pupper, Kuma, whom he rescued just last year.

Really though, Justin is total #DogDadGoals. Once you see photos and videos of the adorable duo together, you'll totally see what I mean.

Justin Theroux adopted his dog Kuma last summer in June 2018.

Just after category four storm Hurricane Harvey hit Texas and Louisiana back in 2017, Kuma was found and brought to a kill shelter, according to People. 

But before Kuma could be euthanized, she was rescued by a non-profit Texas-based organization called A Chance to Bloom Dog Rescue.

Justin caught wind of Kuma while working with rescue non-profit, Austin Pets Alive!, and met Kuma in Houston. The pit wasn't ready to leave the shelter, but he kept tabs on her, and eventually, she was ready to go to her fur-ever home.

Most airlines won't fly pitbulls because of negative stigmas surrounding pit bulls, but Pilot N Paws, a non-profit that flies adopted pets to their new homes, offered Kuma a ride. Theroux met Kuma at the New York airport in tears, ready to begin his life with her.

Justin posted the above photo to Instagram, introducing Kuma to his followers, and thanking those who helped him during the adoption process.

He also made a point to encourage his followers to check out and support each of the non-profits. And, most importantly, he urged his audience to adopt, instead of shopping for pets.

Now, over a year later, Kuma and Justin are recreating scenes from Lady and the Tramp.

During the premiere of Disney+'s Lady and the Tramp, the actor re-created the famous spaghetti scene with Kuma. According to Pop Culture, both Kuma and Theroux worked on the remake, with Theroux as the voice of the Tramp, and Kuma, who physically appeared in the movie.

The photo of them sharing a plate of spaghetti is seriously adorable, though, so if you haven't already seen it, scroll down to see it, below.

Netflix tweeted a 90-second video in which Justin professes his love to Kuma.

Seriously — for the entire minute and a half video, the animal lover snuggles Kuma, tells viewers about her nicknames, talks about the amazing moments they spend together, and simply professes his love to her.

It's truly amazing, so take a moment to watch it, below.

Justin recently went to a shelter to cover four pups' adoption fees.

On Wednesday, Nov. 6, the actor took to Instagram to reveal that he and Kuma visited Ventura County Animal Services. And as a die-hard animal enthusiast, the Hollywood star just couldn't leave without doing something special for the puppers in need. 

In the IG post, Justin revealed that he paid the adoption fees for four lucky dogs: Zumo, Shotti, a nameless pup he refers to as "No Name," and Stella.

He did it to encourage people to take the beloved pups home. He even tagged ex-partner, Jennifer Aniston, and another animal lover, Selena Gomez, urging them to adopt the free pups. So sweet!
