His hair grows fast and out of control.

But his teeth don’t seem to bother him and he is perfectly happy and healthy.

His future owner, Emily McCombs, saw his picture and immediately fell in love. She adopted him and now he resides in Brooklyn, which is pretty appropriate cause Adam Driver had a big part in Girls.

She’s so famous she even has a documentary about her and she’s got a whopping 1.5 million followers on Instagram.
