A Shiba Inu named Kya from Orlando has become famous online because of her cute reaction when she met Santa, who she really loves. According to Kya's human, 16-year-old John Mantaldo, they gave the one-year-old cutie a toy Santa last year, which immediately became her favorite.

Kya loves her toy Santa so much that she always licks it and plays with it, even if it's not Christmas. The perfect opportunity for Kya to meet her real idol came when John and his sister Angelina saw an ad for pet photos with Santa. The two immediately took Kya and their other dog Lucy to the mall. 

"A lot of people were taking pictures with their dogs, but we were like, "Nah, it's just going to be the dog," said Angelina. 

John said that Kya, who was usually hyper and crazy when they take her to the mall, became "really calm."

"She just sat there and looked at him. She usually misbehaves when we take her to Petsmart, but she was behaving for Santa." 

Look at Kya's priceless reaction!

Unfortunately, their other dog Lucy was terrified of Santa. 

The photo cost $30, but John and Angelina said it was worth it. "She was definitely the most excited dog there," Angelina said.
