Rachel Barron, a tech staff from the center, noticed how timid Layla was, and started to comfort her in any way she could. Then the unthinkable happened.

Layla just flashed the smile of a lifetime!

“When I began to speak in a baby talk kind of voice, she absolutely loved it,” Rachel said. [She] began wagging her tail and then boom, the famous smile. That is when I pulled out my phone to get it on video. It was too cute not to share.”

It was a smile that could launch a thousand ships, and Rachel knew it was Layla’s message of appreciation to the center for saving her.

When Rachel uploaded the video on social media, many people got totally smitten by her adorable smile, and there was just an outpour of love for Layla.

“She was shy at first, but you could tell she was so sweet and excited,” Nicole said.

Once home, Layla didn’t take long enough to mellow out, and started to get cozy with the rest of Nicole’s family, including their pet dogs. Layla got instant connection, and began playing and running around with the other dogs.

There was warmth and love all around the house, and Layla’s smile made everything even better.

“She’s such a sweetheart and we noticed she even smiles when she’s asleep,” Nicole said.
