Black Labrador Smiles At People To Get Them To Adopt Him From Shelter

Black Labrador Smiles At People To Get Them To Adopt Him From Shelter

It must be the most heartbreaking thing being an animal in a shelter and watching people come in all day, every day and not being chosen.

Animals can't really sell themselves with words so they have to rely on their looks and sweet nature to get someone to choose them.

But one dog in America is trying something a little different to be noticed: smile.

They say a smile can light up a room and this black Labrador named Burreaux is certainly making his small area shine with his trick.

The Humane Society of North Louisiana posted pictures and video of the adorable dog trying his best to be noticed, along with a caption, saying: "Burreaux is still awaiting his home. He said his brother got a home quick because he played fetch... so he's pulling out his tricks."

At just eight-weeks-old, the dog was rescued from a kill-shelter, along with two other pups named Joe and O. He had to be rushed to an animal hospital because he was so sick. He's since made a full recovery and when he arrived at the Humane Society, his brother had already been adopted.

Humane Society volunteer Sarrah Walton said to The Dodo: "It's whenever you're talking real sweet to him...he gets this smile like he wants something. [It's] like he's telling you, 'Come pet me, come love me.'"

We can imagine there would be no shortage of people wanting to do that to Burreaux, especially ever since he went viral online. The video of the dog smiling at the camera has been viewed nearly half a million times and people all around the world have seen his adorable face.

Ms Walton said: "We were thinking, 'Burreaux wants a home so bad that he's always smiling, trying to cute it up'. So we took that video and now it's going viral."

The question is: will anyone adopt him?

Thankfully, the Humane Society revealed he was picked up by someone special and is now on his way to his forever home. Now that is the heartwarming story we need in 2020.

He was one of 39 dogs that were adopted during February, but Burreaux's sister is still needing a home.
