Shelter Dog learns to smile and wins the heart of a wonderful adoptor
If you’re a fan of Instagram celebrity dogs, you know Brinks the Smiling Pit Bull well. His silly smile not only won him over 81,000 followers, but he also helped him get his perfect human forever.
A kennel technician at the Front Street Animal Shelter in Sacramento, California, knew that a puppy named Riley had the potential to give Brinks’ signature smile a run for its money – and she was right!
Britney Ridge bonded with the sweet and outgoing Pibble blonde when she was turned into a shelter by a nice homeless man who found her wandering the city streets. For some reason, Ridge just knew that Riley was going to be a smiler, so she started teaching him how to wear his winning personality on his face.
Each day during meal times, Ridge spoke kindly to Riley and congratulated her when she pulled her lips back – a common expression of awkward joy at Pit Bulls. And then one day it happened. Ridge had one of his daily conversations with Riley when the puppy perfected his smile. She pulled out her phone and captured this adorable video.open nex Page To See More
