Shelter Pup Flashes A Smile At Everyone That Passes His Kennel

Shelter dogs have many ways of capturing the attention of potential adopters visiting the shelter. Some howl, some make adorable noises, some are naturally unique-looking, and others, evidently, flash their most captivating smile.

Courtney Wingate, director of the Humane Society of Northwest Louisiana, first witnessed the pup’s unusual behavior while on her regular visit to the local animal control. She passed the litter’s kennel, and as soon as the 8-week-old pup saw her, he flashed her with his most charming smile.

Wingate immediately called Sarah Walton, one of the shelter’s volunteers, to come and pick the charming litter.

As a faithful LSU fan, Walton named the pups after the team’s coach and quarterback – O, Joe, and (smiley) Burreaux.

Back at the shelter, Walton discovered that Burreaux’s smile is triggered when he’s spoken to in a high-pitched voice, especially when he’s told what a good boy he is.

Just look and see for yourself:

Naturally, after they’ve undergone all the vet’s test, and it was time to find the pups a forever home, the shelter’s staff decided to utilize Burreaux’s unique smiling ability by uploading a video of his smile to social media.
