Seph Ware is a 7th grader at Good Hope Middle School who has Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a genetic disorder that weakens muscles and makes it hard to do everyday tasks. And that's where Presley, Seph's service dog, comes in.

For the past four years she has been with Seph every step of the way. She rarely leaves his side and even goes to class with him.

So when it came time for yearbook photos, Presley got one as well -- and it's just too adorable for words.

Seph and Presley's endearing story has already touched hearts across the internet.

"This is a wonderful way to honor both the child and the service dog! Way to go Good Hope!!!" a commenter wrote on Facebook.
