It was Frito the dog’s lucky day on Saturday when he was reunited with five of his six siblings for a paw-dorable puppy party.

The reunion was made possible after this social media post of Frito looking for his family went viral.

"All the dogs got along really great," Corie Gemmiti, Frito’s owner, told ABC News. "It was nice to meet all the families of all the dogs. It was good to talk to them and figure out the personalities of all the dogs."

The pups hadn’t seen each other since October 2015 when they were all adopted into separate families from Texas Humane Heroes in Leander. But when they got back together, it was clear they were all related.

"They all had the same body type and all their tails were tucked between their legs when they first got there," said Gemmiti.

Even their birth mom, Patty, showed up to play.

"The mom of all the puppies was there and Frito looked the most like her," Gemmiti said. "They were the same coloring and everything."

The pups celebrated with a dog-friendly cake and big game of fetch.

"Patty was the one who dove into the cake. She did not hold back," Christine Rankin, the marketing manager for Texas Humane Heroes, joked. "She wanted that cake all for herself. She shared, which was nice, but everyone else was so overwhelmed and excited from the playtime they weren't really interested."

"We had a great time setting the reunion up and getting them back together," said Rankin. "We always love receiving updates of our adopted animals, so seeing in person who they grew up to be and that they are all in loving homes just makes it ten times better."
