Nothing like a puppy pick-me-up.

Need a little boost to your mood? Instagram‘s Ollievuesomuch has 85 pick-me-ups and counting. The account is devoted to Ollie, a three-legged golden retriever puppy who just might be the happiest dog on social media.

Ollie was the 12th dog in a litter initially thought to only be 11. He was born with only three paws and a stunted left leg. As a result, it’s only made him more determined. “He loves running around, he actually gets around better when he’s running than he does walking,” owner Alex Widmer told WBIR.

Widmer lives in Knoxville and works as a freelance videographer. Pairing his multimedia skills with Ollie’s boundless energy has helped the Ollievuesomuch Instagram account reach over 52,000 followers.

Widmer and his wife adopted the dog this year. According to BuzzFeed, they’re hoping to help train Ollie to be a therapy or service dog.
