True happiness comes from the heart, not from the material belongings, and this guy seems to be the happiest man alive. Even though he used to live on the streets nearly his entire life, without any possessions, he’s just far more fortunate than many of us. Recently he just showed the world what real happiness is, after he celebrated one of his dogs’ birthday in the sweetest way. Someone caught the beautiful moment on camera and it warms hearts all over the place!

José Luis Matos is one of the many homeless people who live on the streets of Bucaramanga, the capital of the department of Santander in Colombia. Recently, the 25-year-old man known as ‘Choco Aventura,’ went viral on social media and the reason is just heartwarming.

Choco might live on the streets, but he still has a family. A really loving one: his two adorable dogs who never leave his side. They are inseparable and have a deep love for each other. So when one of the dogs, named Shaggy, turned 2 years old, Choco had a lovely surprise for him. He just bought a cake, birthday candles, and even party hats, for a proper celebration.

In an absolutely adorable, and now viral, footage, Choco can be seen siting on some stairs alongside his furry companions – who’re both wearing party hats – with a birthday cake in front of them, and singing ‘Happy Birthday!’ Then Choco cut a slice of cake for both his pups and kisses them. The video is a pure display of love and compassion!
