This Labrador puppy is guaranteed to brighten up your day.

Little Burreaux, who was under the care of the Humane Society in Louisiana in the US, became an online sensation after a clip of him seeming to flash a charming smile went viral.

Animal shelter director Courtney Wingate rescued the black Labrador when he was just eight weeks old after she found him along with two other puppies, O and Joe, at an animal control kennel, PEOPLE reports.

When Burreaux was brought into the shelter he was ill and admitted to an animal hospital where he was treated and made a successful recovery.

Burreaux flashes his cheesy smile “when you’re talking real sweet to him. He gets this smile like he wants something, like he’s telling you, ‘Come pet me, come love me,’ ” shelter volunteer Sarah Walton says.

After turning into a viral sensation within a week, the adorable pooch was adopted by a young couple, Metro reported.
