Three adorable Labrador were taken in by the local animal control when they were just 8-weeks-old, the director of the Humane Society of Northwest Louisiana, Wingate called volunteer Sarrah Walton who ran over to grab the 8-week-old dogs. Sarrah Walton as a big Louisiana State University football fan, she named the pups Joe, Burreaux and O after the quarterback and coach of the school’s football team.
All the three puppies tested negative for parvo, but Burreaux got sick so they rushed him straight back to the animal hospital where he made an incredible recovery.
Walton started noticing that whenever someone talked to Burreaux in a high voice, telling him that he was a good boy, he pup would immediately flash his little teeth in a big grin.
“It’s whenever you’re talking real sweet to him … he gets this smile like he wants something,” Walton told The Dodo. “[It’s] like he’s telling you, ‘Come pet me, come love me.’”
When the dogs were ready to find their forever homes, the rescue decided to show off their talents online and Joe with his natural talent for fetch immediately got adopted.
“The entire litter was friendly and sweet and they like to play,” Walton said. “Burreaux and his sister are starting to learn fetch, too.”
Sarrah began to think about what special talent Burreaux could show off in a Facebook video.
“And we were thinking, ‘Burreaux wants a home so bad that he’s always smiling, trying to cute it up,’” Walton said. “So we took that video and now it’s going viral.”
