The Beaumont Animal Care in Texas picked up a puppy found running through traffic. Judged to be 7 weeks old, Layla was frail and nervous when first arriving at the shelter.
She surprised tech Rachel Barron with a dazzling grin when Barron began baby talking to the small dog. Barron said she was trying to put Layla at ease with the baby talk and was rewarded with a tail wag and a cute grin.
Baron was able to capture the cute moment on her phone. Adoption inquires rolled in following Barron sharing the video of the adorable smiling face online.
The perfect local family was found in Nicole Toney and her husband. Layla fit right in with their other three rescue dogs and two cats.
Layla settled in quickly with her new family. Toney says she is a real sweetheart and even smiles in her sleep.
