Meet James Franco: no, not the actor, the New Jersey dog who was adopted from Liberty Humane Society in Jersey City who’s captured the hearts of Instagram with his adorable photo feed. Here’s how he’s described in his bio: “2yo badass rescue pup. 14lbs of sexy terrorizing the streets of Hoboken. Proud owner of floppy ears & a killer smile!”

The woman who adopted this sweet dog is Tina Coccia, who told OMJ, “I’m a fan of all James Franco’s work and am always amused by his entertainment.” His canine namesake shares a lot in common with the Freaks and Geeks and Pineapple Express actor. According to Tina, the onscreen funny guy “always keeps me laughing just like my Mister James Franco (usually called Franco).” Plus her pet is “also quite the ladies man and flirts like James Franco.” She said that because he’s a min-pin mixed with Italian greyhound, he’s got lots of energy and is very athletic.

The adorable pup is certainly lucky to have gone to such a loving home, which you can tell from every photo he’s featured in. Check him out; you just might be inspired to adopt your own dog after you see how sweet Franco is:

If by “killer” they mean “too cute for words,” we agree! Look at that mug:
