I think dogs are one of the funniest and smartest animals on our planet. This video of a dog whining because she can’t open her Christmas presents, for example, never fails to make me laugh.
Every dog has such a unique and interesting personality, and it’s sometimes hard to capture that personality on camera. If you could though, think of how it might help get them adopted. Wouldn’t it be great if every rescue animal was able to find his forever home?
The Human Society of Utah recently put some of their harder-to-adopt dogs into a photo booth to let them “cheese it up” for the camera. The results are hilarious, heartwarming, and most importantly…effective!
After they posted some of the photos to their Facebook page, most of these lucky pups got adopted.
Scroll down for the adorable photos and to learn more about each “model” and their personality. They’re all adorable, but I’m particularly in love with number eight. Can I have him?

2. Hugo the Welsh Corgie/Pit Bull Terrier
“Hugo is a high-octane pup who doesn’t let his short little legs slow him down.”
3. Charlie the German Shepherd

10. Harley the Beagle
“Don’t go calling this 11-year-old beagle a senior just yet. Harley is full of gusto and spunk! He will have no problem keeping up with any crowd.”
