The internet is pretty much obsessed with dogs - and with good reason. Canine cuties seem to be amongst the purest aspects of modern life. But that makes it all the more tragic when one is treated as anything less than the angel they are.

But there's one stray dog who has been stealing the spotlight this week, thanks in no small part to her glorious smile.

Is there anything better than a dog?

These adorable creatures are basically the best things on earth. If you’re ever feeling down in the dumps, a dog is guaranteed to make you feel better.

They are truly man's best pals.

Whether they’re causing mischief, giving us those puppy eyes when they want a treat, or taking up the entire sofa, many of us couldn’t live without our furry friends.

Once you become a dog-parent, there's no going back...

It’s hard to imagine a life without having a pooch to come home to.

In an age where the internet is so divided, there's one thing we can all agree on...

How utterly amazing (and adorable) our four-legged friends are.

Sadly, so many pooches are lost, abandoned or dumped - being left to fend for themselves.

Though there is some light at end of the tunnel for many of these doggos - who end up getting rescued and eventually adopted into new families.

Many animal shelters are simply overflowing...

And, according to statistics from the Humane Society, 6 to 8 million cats and dogs enter shelters here in the U.S. each year.

But these animal shelters aren't always the safest places for these animals.

Millions of these animals are euthanized every year due to the lack of space and people interested in adopting.

It's a devastating reality of animal homelessness.

And statistics show that, out of the 3 million cats and dogs euthanized in shelters every year, around 2.4 million are actually healthy, and would have been fit for adoption with a new owner.

And there's one breed that tends to fill up these shelters...

... Staffordshire Bull Terriers.

There's a stereotype that Staffies are dangerous and aggressive.

But often, these misconceptions are completely untrue.

And that couldn't be more the case for this adorable stray staffie.

Her smile really struck a chord with people...

And the shelter was inundated with messages expressing their love for the pooch.

And she soon found a new home with eighteen-year-old Frankie Murphy.

"We saw her lovely little smile and couldn’t resist," he said. "Even though we knew she had a lot of interest from the Twitter post, we got in contact with the charity in hopes that she was still available. "When we went to visit her, we fell in love with her straight away."

Her smile lights up the room.

Apparently, she's settled into her new home quickly and is smiling more than ever. Interested in more adorable dog content? Keep scrolling to see the woman who came back form vacation with a stray dog...
