Meet Baro, the adorable black Labrador puppy who does his best to put a smile on everyone who passes by the prospective kennel.
One day, Courtney Wingate, director of the Louisiana Northwest Animal Welfare Society, was passing a local animal control center and found three puppies and realized she couldn’t leave them.
She inspected all three puppies, but Burro’s charming smile caught the eye.
So Courtney called Sarah Walton, a volunteer who rescued the puppy, before naming them after three Louisiana State University football players.
All trios took them straight to the vet for regular check-ups and all tested positive. But when they returned to the rescue center, Pharaoh fell ill. They immediately took him to the vet where he was treated and helped to make a full recovery.
After the three returned to the rescue shelter, Sarah began to notice that Barro smiled broadly whenever someone spoke to him in a high voice. Every time someone called him a good boy, he gleamed with a wide smile and tiny teeth. In a conversation with Dodo Sarra, she said: “Every time you talk so kindly… He laughs as if he wants something. [It’s] as if he’s saying to you, “Come on, pet me, come and love me.”
When the puppy was ready for adoption, rescuers decided that sharing the puppy’s special talent on social media was the best way to make the puppy live forever. Joe was a natural gambler and was quickly adopted after sharing a video about his technique.
For Berreuax, the shelter staff decided to share a video of him shining a big lovely smile to show his cute personality.
[We] thought, “Burro wants a house, so he always smiled to make it more beautiful.” So I shot this video.
