Eight-week-old Burreaux has been living at the Humane Society of Northwest Louisiana with his siblings Joe and O. The pups were named by director Courtney Wingate after three Louisiana State University Football players.
After being brought to the rescue centre, Burreaux found a way to stand out among all the other canines also hoping to be adopted.
The black labrador smiled at all of those visiting the kennels in the hope somebody will stop and be charmed by his cheeky grin.
The pup’s adorable plan has paid off, as he has now found loving new owners.
The dog, deemed “so sweet” by staff at the centre, is described as both “active and playful” so is sure to keep his new owners on their toes.
A spokesperson from Humane Society of Northwest Louisiana said: “Burreaux came to us from Caddo Animal Control with his two siblings.
“He is active, playful and so sweet. He is the runt of the bunch.
“We have even started teaching him how to play fetch.”
Before being adopted, Bureaux and his siblings underwent routine check-ups at the vets, but they were given a clear bill of health.
