Courtesy facebook.com/NPA4UAre you swooning yet? With their puppy-sized hats and uniforms, these six American Labs are just too cute to resist. And they already have a fan club—including us!
Even though they can barely open their eyes yet, each pup is poised to follow in the footsteps (or should we say paw-steps?) of their parents, Yellow and Leader, as narcotics and blood detection dogs. And according to us, they’re also poised to break the Internet.

“Fushin is very special,” the captain of the K-9 Unit, Pan Tian-long, told BuzzFeed News. “He is the naughtiest and the bossiest.”

Honestly? We think it’s time for a policy puppy fan page. But until then, check out the Barkly Barks Dog Festival to get your pooch fix, otherwise known as the best event you’ve never heard of.Courtesy facebook.com/NPA4U
