If you’re one of the tens of thousands of people who saw the new Nintendo Switch and immediately thought, “Oh, what a cute little dog face,” brace yourself.

After a trailer for the new gaming console dropped last week, a few Twitter users quickly pointed out how easily the system could be anthropomorphized into a cartoonish dog.

Inspired by those sketches, plushie maker and gaming enthusiast @TheAnnaTheRed quickly hopped on board the doggo train, proudly debuting this Nintendog on Twitter earlier this week.

The details are perfect, from the -/+ eyebrows all the way down to the little x on its butt.

If you want to take a closer look (and see him in precious on and off mode), go check out her Flickr gallery.

You can sign up for updates on the Switch preorder, but no word yet on the public availability of this little pupper. For now, he’s one of a kind.
