Anja Rubik is one lucky gal! Not only does the beautiful, high-earning top model get all the magazine covers, but she also just got the best birthday present ever—an adorable dog named Charlie. 

The pup was a thoughtful present from Rubik’s husband, Sasha Knezevic, who is also a model.

The stunning supermodel, and Karl Lagerfeld’s muse, turned 30-years-old last week and celebrated her birthday with friends in New York City.

On the morning of her birthday she picked-up a tiny dog, adopted from Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue. The organization is an “all volunteer network of rescuers, fosters and volunteers who work together to rescue, rehabilitate and find homes for sweet, loving, adoptable dogs from pounds in the rural south.”

The dogs the organization rescue animals are placed on kill lists, so in this case, Anja literally saved a life. 

The model is known for her love and strong attachment to animals. After Rubik’s beloved pet rat, Fibi, passed away, she got a tattoo on her wrist in the rat’s memory.

It’s great to see that instead of diamonds, cars, and other material things, Sasha decided to get his wife a kind and compassionate gift.
