When a little rescue dog in Texas was brought into an animal shelter to find a new home, the shelter was surprised to find that the pup was basically bound for fame.
“Y’all … this smiling dog we got in at the shelter yesterday is ridiculous,” the shelter said in a post.
The pup’s name is Cheech, and since posting photos of him smiling for the camera, the shelter received countless offers from people wanting to adopt him.
“The smiling scared a couple of the volunteers as they mistook it for snarling, and they were mortified when I stuck my hand in his cage on the day we got him in,” Leah Sipe, the director of the shelter and a Waller police officer, told WTVT. “He’s an awesome little guy.”
After sifting through several applications, the shelter found Cheech’s perfect match.
“I reviewed the applications for Cheech, and one story stood out the most. Carrie reached out to the shelter volunteers and shared her heartbreaking loss with us, she lost her beloved Shepherd to cancer on Friday — since then her other dog (Dusty) pictured here, has been severely depressed and had not eaten in days,” the shelter posted on Facebook.
Cheech, Carrie and Dusty will now live happily ever after, cheesin’ for the rest of Cheech’s life.
