A lot of people adopt dogs. Few do so with the attention this guy is getting for it.

This Australian man posed with his new pup in a photo that made its way to Facebook, where the world responded with a great, big "Awww!" He's basically everyone's dream Valentine.

The photo, posted by Pet's Haven Animal Shelter, inspired scores of comments and likes from people, many of whom were wowed with the dog's owner, Ben Henderson. Unfortunately for the adoring public, Ben is taken. His fiancee, Alisha Howell posted her own response.
