When Gina Uso from Illinois saw the adorable look on her son's puppy's face, she couldn't help but share snaps of the precious pooch on Twitter.

"My son’s dog taking a bath is all the cuteness my heart needs tonight," she wrote alongside a picture of the little canine, clinging to edge of the tub with his tiny paws.

Completely soaked in water, the dog looks over the bathtub with big eyes as if asking his owner to pick him up.

The precious puppy eyes had over 500,000 users around the world feeling warm and fuzzy inside.

A number of commenters agreed: the bathing nugget must be a mix between Baby Yoda and Baby Chewbacca!
