Adorable rescue dog gets adopted after its toothy smile goes viral

Thanks to its strange-yet-adorable smile, a rescue puppy that took the internet by storm has finally found a home. Burreaux, a Labrador-retriever mix, went viral after starring in a video by the Humane Society of Northwest Louisiana on Feb. 22. The clip showed the 8-week-old puppy smiling a huge, toothy grin as people walked by his bed. It has since been viewed more than 500,000 times on Facebook. The clip captured the hearts of thousands of commenters, who suggested that Burreaux was smiling at potential adopters. The video got so much attention that the puppy found a forever home within a few days. Hollie King, who adopted the dog and renamed him Pappy, told Insider she’s yet to see his iconic look. She says, "His smile is what drew us into adopting him. So far he hasn’t smiled, not one time... I figured it’s either he’s still trying to get used to us or keeps getting distracted by everything. He really is the sweetest thing ever"
