This adorable little pup, named Happy, was living in a shelter but hoped to find a forever home at the Best Friends Society Pet Adoption Center in New York City.
Despite his situation, he is always smiling. At the adoption event, a woman named Ting was out looking for a big dog who has wise looking eyes and was very smart. But when she laid her eyes on Happy, everything she was looking for suddenly flew out the window. Happy was now all that she wanted!
It was love at first sight. Happy is a tiny dog who is more silly than wise, but Ting still thought he was the perfect fit. At 14 years old, Happy was still spunkier than ever. You’d never guess his age by looking at him. He’s still very playful and loves to have a fun time.
Not all shelter dogs are as lucky as Happy wound up being, but he’s definitely living up to his name. He had always smiled, but now he has even more to smile about! It warms my heart to see dogs so happy; they deserve it!
Next time you’re thinking of buying a new puppy, hopefully Happy’s story encourages you to adopt instead of shop! There’s another dog like Happy who is out there waiting for you to give them even more reasons to smile!
Watch Happy smile away with his new mom in the video below. His smile is definitely contagious, and I bet by the end you will be smiling too!
