Pit bulls have been written off by many as a violent breed, but the Humane Society of Utah has been fighting this public perception, and their most recent adoption success story shows just how cute and friendly they can be. Teton, an adorable one-year-old pit bull, was adopted only day after the humane society uploaded some cute photo booth photos of his to their Facebook.
Their program, which has them posting beautiful and fun photobooth photos of the dogs in their shelter on Facebook, shows just how meaningful a good photo can be for a dog looking for a forever home. Teton isn’t the only dog who has benefited from their program – plenty of other dogs of all breeds have been adopted after getting a professional photobooth treatment.
ADOPTED: “We think TETON might be part bat, part piggy and part Pittie or a character you might find in a children’s book. He makes adorable snorting noise while trying to shower you with kisses and hugs”
ADOPTED: “Bay is a strong and curious boy who loves his treats and squeaky toys. He has done well with other dogs here at the HSU”
“This 1 year old free spirited Border Collie blend would love a life long partner who’d take him adventures and to create heartfelt memories with. Quiet and reserved most people would look over FRANCO in his kennel but spend a little time petting him and he’ll ask you not to stop”
ADOPTED: “Is sitting at home boring? PRINCESS the pint sized Pibble would have to agree! This one year old ball of energy would love an active family to take her on daily adventures, hiking in the mountains or running in the park”
“Shy and reserved at first but once she feels safe Vivian thinks she’s a lap dog, she’ll shower you with delicate kisses on the cheek. She even gives dog hugs pressing her chest against yours and resting her head on your shoulder!”
“Do you sing in your car, loudly and off key? That’s okay TOBY won’t judge, just as long as you take him with you! In fact take a #selfie with him while you’re at it!”
ADOPTED: “Shake, sit, lay, stay and bang are just a few things this smart pup knows. Meet TRINITY the 2 year old Lab Border collie blend! Not only is she one smart cookie who lives to please, she also enjoys going on walks and just hanging out with the humans”
ADOPTED: “Do you dream of driving up the canyon in your Grand Wagoneer…Windows down, breathing in the crisp autumn air? Wearing a red and black gingham flannel shirt prepared for the chilly night around a camp fire, enjoying hot chocolate and s’mores? TRIGGER shares the same dreams and aspirations too!”
ADOPTED: “Goofy, lovable and cheeky are just a few words used to describe ENZO the happy hound dog mix! At just 11 months old he’s a big puppy that’s ready to soak up everything you’re ready to teach him!”
ADOPTED: “We’re pretty certain a life in show biz or the circus was involved in RAVEN’S past because she knows all sorts of tricks and loves to entertain! RAVEN is a transfer from another shelter so her history is a mystery”
ADOPTED: “Do you live for adventure, get thrills from climbing the highest mountain or flying off the dock into in the lake? Well we have the dog for you…Meet PETER the 3 year old Australian Shepherd mix”
“If you took one look at MONROE and fell in love don’t feel bad…We’re pretty sure MONROE has her own person Cupid flying over head, shooting arrows at will! This precious Pittie mix is only 2 years old and is a real people pleaser”
ADOPTED: “Looking for a friend who will listen to everything you have to say, comfort you when you sad and provide unconditional love and support? CAROLINE is your girl! This kind and gentle 2 year old German Shepherd is one sweet lady”
“Ready set…. GO! BRAM wants to race, chase, fetch and PLAY! He’s a 1 year old Border Collie who’s full of spunk and exuberant playfulness. He’d love to learn how to be a great pup and no doubt he’d excel at obedience, agility or even flyball!”
ADOPTED: “Did HARRY stop you in your tracks? It’s no wonder because this 2 year old German Shepherd mix is one good looking dog! But handsome HARRY is more than just good looks, he’s smart, loving and social!”
ADOPTED: “Do you like to tell funny jokes that no one laughs at? Come tell them to MAY she’ll laugh at each and everyone! Not only will she laugh along with you, she won’t judge when you break out and dance to your favorite tunes or sing off key!“
