Snapchat released an app update on Dec. 24 that includes lenses that can identify dog faces and apply filters. This new feature came just in time for pet parents to snap selfies with their pups for the holidays.

This is not the first time Snapchat released animal-specific filters. The company unveiled cat-specific filters back in October.

To announce the update, Snapchat released a video of dogs with the lenses applied. Every dog included in the photos is or was available for adoption at Wags and Walks, a Los Angeles dog adoption center.

Some of the dog-friendly lenses include glasses for your dog, a pizza around their face and a crown made of dog treats. Humans can also join in the on the picture and have a complementary filter applied to their face as well.
