Shelter Puppy Hopes To Land Forever Home By Smiling At Everyone That Talks To Him

All shelter dogs look longingly at each person that passes by their kennel hoping to be chosen. While some dogs capture the attention of adopters by howling, or with their unique looks – one puppy is flashing his pearly whites.

An adorable shelter puppy named Burreaux is melting hearts with his captivating smile that he hopes will land him a forever home. The Labrador Retriever mix puppy smiles whenever someone talks to him in a sweet or high voice.

His smile caught the attention of Courtney Wingate, director of the Humane Society of Northwest Louisiana, who rescued him and his two siblings from animal control. Since Wingate is a huge LSU fan, each of the puppies were named after the quarterback and coach of the LSU football team, Joe, Burreaux and O.

The puppies were brought back to the shelter and put up for adoption. Joe was a natural fetcher and was immediately adopted. Burreaux’s talent was not in fetching toys but charming people. He is also a fighter. The “runt of the bunch” arrived with parvo but beat it and is a happy and healthy boy.
