We have had to make sure more than once that dogs are incredibly intelligent creatures.
Many inhabitants of animal shelters seem to have already guessed that a variety of tricks can help them to conquer potential owners.
Some pets resort to unusual tricks for this. Others happily wag their tail, trying to charm and attract the attention of visitors to the shelter.
The hero of this story, a 2-year-old dog named Cheech found a new home using… his charming smile!
Cheech was picked up on the streets of Texas and taken to a local shelter by volunteers.
Over time, the staff of the animal center began to notice that the dog began to make a strange expression on his face every time someone approached his cage.
“When I first saw his ‘smile’, I immediately called my colleagues to take a look.
At first they thought Cheech was just grinning or snarling, but he was more friendly than ever,” recalls the director of the shelter, Leah Sipe.
The woman took several photos of Cheech and posted them on the shelter’s official Facebook page, where they quickly went viral.
People never ceased to be touched by the pet’s charming smile. And many of them even wanted to take him home!
“I am sold!” – different people wrote in the comments.
After considering all the proposals, volunteers and employees of the shelter helped Cheech to find a new family.
The owner of the dog was a woman named Carrie. One of her dogs died the day before. And the second one, Dusty, could not cope with the loss of her friend.
When Carrie and Dusty first met Cheech, it was immediately clear to everyone that the three would get along just fine!
It’s great that such an unusual feature helped the charming Cheech find a new home!
