If only we have the capabilities and the resources to get all the dogs out of a kill shelter, the world would only be even more beautiful. How wonderful would that be?
Since we can’t do such a huge heroic act, we can still do it one dog at a time. Deciding which dog to pull out from such an awful place is certainly very difficult. This is what the director of the Humane Society of Northwest Louisiana Courtney Wingate had to experience first-hand.
Courtney decided to visit a local shelter recently. She saw not only one but three eight-week-old Labrador mix puppies.
At first, they all look like typical shelter puppies. It was until one of them decided to show off his captivating smile.
That smile only made Courtney’s decision-making process so much faster and easier. She knows these pups need her the most.
Courtney immediately contacted Sarah Walton, an HSNWL volunteer, to pick up the pups. Sarah took the liberty to name them after her favorite football team in college, the LSU Tigers.
In a snap, the shelter now has three more adorable puppies. They were Burreaux, Joe, and O.
Shortly after getting into the shelter, Burreaux got very ill. It was the deadly parvovirus that he has to conquer. And sure he did conquer the virus. In no time, he got better, stronger, and had a brighter smile on his face.
Later on, Joe learned to play fetch. He was really so good at it that he got adopted quite quickly. Now, O is starting to get better in play fetch, too. Everyone in the shelter hopes he gets adopted soon.
Unlike his siblings, Burreaux isn’t as physically talented. But his sweet-talking skills surely make up for it.
The shelter staff decided to offer Burreaux and O a little help. They uploaded a video on the HSNWL Facebook page showcasing both dogs, especially Burreaux’s toothy smile.
Little did the staff know that the video would easily go viral. Since then, the video has been viewed more than 600,000 times! Burreaux and O received so much attention and positivity from all over the globe!
Soon enough, both Burreaux and O finally found their forever homes. Both of them are now living their best lives!
