This is Kerbie Gibbs, a 21-year-old student at Marshall University in West Virginia, and her 8-month-old English Springer Spaniel Ruger. Kerbie told BuzzFeed News Ruger lives with her mom and siblings in her hometown.

They adopted Ruger when he was just a lil' thing (look at that photo! 😍)

"He's very clumsy, but also extremely loving," Kerbie said.

Here's a close up of the perfection. Slay Ruger, slay!

Kerbie said that Ruger was "100 percent" born with this great hair, and "has been spending a lot of time in the sun, so his fur got tons of natural highlights."

"He's an outdoors dog, so he's always running around aimlessly for hours, which usually involves getting covered in dirt and mud," she said. "It really seems to do the trick for his hair though. My family and I usually just hose him off after a long day. He loves it. No special techniques."

Kerbie said she and Kaleb always joke that Ruger "looks like he just came fresh out of the salon." So, she decided to tweet the latest pic to her followers. "My dog's ear is like the perfect picture to show your hairdresser if you want beachy waves and caramel highlights," she wrote.

"My dog is straight out of a L'Oréal commercial."
