A Pit bull mix puppy was found wandering the streets alone in Texas. She was taken in by Beaumont Animal Care and that is when the most amazing transformation happened.
Layla, as she was later named, was afraid and nervous when she first arrived at the shelter. However, once she realized that she was safe and had a warm bed to sleep in – she smiled.
One of the vet techs, Rachel Barron, first saw the “famous” smile when she talked in a baby voice to the pup. Once she witnessed Layla’s adorable smile and happy demeanor, she knew she had to share it with the world. She recorded a video of the little pup wagging her tail and smiling.
Barron thought the video would make people smile and help Layla find a forever home. Well, she was right. The video went viral and Layla found her forever home with Nicole Toney and her husband. She was welcomed into their home by three other rescue dogs and two cats.
The shelter shared the good news with their fans by posting, “Our smiley girl has found her permanent home! She now has a family to share all of her happiness with! Thank you to her new family for adopting our bundle of joy!”
Layla is so happy to be in a loving home and is making new friends with her fur siblings. “She’s such a sweetheart and we noticed she even smiles when she’s asleep,” Toney told The Dodo.
Take a look at the “famous” smile in the video below.
