At less than a year old, Sir Charles Barkley is winning the hearts of dog lovers and basketball fans alike.

March Madness is wrapping up shortly, but we’re not talking about NBA basketball legend Charles Barkley (who, by the way, has provided some of our favorite commentary of the tournament).

We’re talking about the Internet’s latest favorite pooch. This photogenic French Bulldog has nearly 10,000 followers on Instagram, and we can see why!

The pup, who will celebrate his first birthday next month, is owned by a Melissa and Paul, from Seattle. Melissa told ABC News that Paul picked the name because he’s a big basketball fan, and Barkley is “the perfect name for a dog.”

“We wanted an Instagram for him, but we didn’t want to blow up our own Instagram account,” Melissa told ABC. Looks like that was a good move!
