Pit Bull Teton’s Adorable Photobooth Shots Find Him A Forever Home

No matter how many times we are assured of their safety as a breed, we’re afraid that Pit Bulls are always going to get a bad rap.  They are unfortunately considered a violent breed as a whole when in reality it’s the cruelty of many owners and horrible dog fighting promoters that contribute to the Pit Bull’s wrongful perception.  However, in a recent campaign, the Humane Society of Utah has been fighting this view.  Recently they’ve had a very successful adoption success story that we’d like to share.

Teton, an adorable one-year-old pit bull, was adopted only one day after the humane society uploaded some cute photo booth photos of his to their Facebookpage. The program, which has them posting beautiful and fun photobooth photos of the dogs in their shelter proves just how meaningful a good photo can be for a dog looking for a forever home.  While we’re saddened that it’s come to this to get a Pit Bull adopted, that doesn’t mean we’re not incredibly happy for Teton.  We’re just saddened that it took this much work.

Teton, however, isn’t the only dog who has benefited from their program – plenty of other dogs of all breeds have been adopted after getting a professional photobooth treatment.  We’ve decided to share their pictures as well as some great captions that the Humane Society provided on their Facebook Page.
