But K.C. Theisen, director of pet care issues for the Humane Society of the United States, urges us not to be too sure of every smile. "A dog who has the open mouth, the tongue hanging out, and the wrinkly cheeks is not necessarily a 'smile' in the way we think of a smile," Theisen told The Dodo, cautioning that misinterpreting the expression could end up in a bad canine encounter. "But almost all mammals have some sort of facial expression that they use when they are trying to be friendly. Learning what dog's body language can tell you is super important, since a dog 'smiling' may or may not be approachable and friendly." She added that if you want to approach a dog, it's always a good idea to ask the human chaperone first.
Chester loves to go hiking, head to the dog park, and play chase with anyone who will follow. Once he's found a ball there's no getting that ball out of his mouth unless you have a treat to swap! His mom says Chester is always smiling and always so happy and can brighten anyone's day.
Thank you for your interest in a Smiling Dog puppy!

Smiling Dog Rescue (SDR) began in January of 2007 when Rica was asked to help rescue a smiling pit bull set for euthanasia at a kill shelter in Southern Arizona. Getting involved in saving this one endangered and innocent life led to a greater awareness of a sad reality across the country – the enormous number of whose lives end in high kill shelters – merely because of the way they look. Never looking back, SDR has rehabilitated and re-homed over 3000 unwanted, stray and abandoned pit bulls, bully type dogs, as well as many other types of dogs from all over the southwestern United States.Send us your smiling dog photo!
