TEXAS —  “Say Cheese.” A smiling dog is winning the internet as he tried to find his forever home.

Cheech was a recent resident of the City of Waller Animal Shelter and Rescue in Texas.

His toothy grin made him a viral sensation after the shelter posted photos of him on Facebook. In addition to his charming chompers, he also managed to land him a new home.

Rescue shelters nationwide take in more than 6.5 million animals a year. The ASPCA estimates that only about 3 million are adopted annually.
