There are so many kind creatures at animal shelters who are only waiting to be adopted by someone. Sadly, tiny puppies frequently get priority over older and larger pets. Despite the misconception that they are very frightened or aggressive, these huge lugs are often sweethearts that will adore you no matter what. Petey the dog is an excellent illustration of this. He eventually got his forever home after spending almost a year in a shelter. His new family even posted a photo of Petey sleeping with a smile on his face after moving in to add to the motivation.

Petey, a joyful dog with an eyepatch-like spot, had run out of time in a small overcrowded shelter and had no prospective adopters waiting for him. The staff then contacted the SPCA of Wake County to assist him in finding his permanent family at that time, according to My Modern Met

Despite these changes, Petey never lost his enthusiasm for the transfer. “As soon as he got here, he was yanking on the leash trying to get through the door. He bounded into the building,” recalls Samantha Ranlet, spokesperson for the SPCA of Wake County. “He was super friendly from day one and very playful. We couldn’t believe that nobody wanted him.” The SPCA employees shared a photo of him on social media along with his adoption status. Petey had found his permanent home in just a few weeks after his adopters fell in love with his adorable face and couldn't wait to meet him. He has since moved in with his family, which includes another puppy.


"Petey is settling in perfectly in his new home," a member of his new family cheerfully wrote, alongside photos of him with his human parents and his dog brother, Adikus. "He loves sleeping in the bed, playing fetch, and sniffing around the yard. And LOVES playing with his new brother and any other doggy friend he finds. He’s the perfect addition. Petey is so loved and is opening up and showing us his beautiful personality. I am so happy to have him."





Just like Petey, another cute pittie puppy won't stop smiling in an animal shelter.  Layla, a 7-week-old puppy, was picked up by Beaumont Animal Care in Texas after being seen running across traffic alone. She was fragile and scared at first, but she utterly shocked the personnel soon after arriving at the shelter. When tech Rachel Barron approached her kennel and started talking to the small dog, she flashed a beautiful grin.



“When I began to speak in a baby talk kind of voice she absolutely loved it,” Barron told The Dodo. “She began wagging her tail and then boom, the famous smile. That is when I pulled out my phone to get it on video. It was too cute not to share.” Layla seemed to know she was in excellent hands, according to Barron, and the small puppy won hearts across the world with her sweet smile. Nicole Toney and her husband, who already have three rescue dogs and two cats, felt Layla would be a wonderful addition to their family straight immediately. Little Layla rapidly warmed up to the Toneys, and they were authorized to bring her home shortly after. Layla immediately began playing and running about with the other dogs, as if she was supposed to be there all along.


“Lady immediately wanted to be near Layla,” Toney said. “Lady was a mom and had just given birth when she was rescued, and so she was really drawn to Layla.” Layla appears to be drawn to the other animals as well, which is possibly due to her lack of companionship when living on the street by herself. “She’s really settling in so well,” Toney said. “She’ll cuddle right next to my husband’s face and fall asleep. She’s such a sweetheart and we noticed she even smiles when she's asleep.”
