Playful Photo Booth Portraits Showcase Adoptable Dogs’ Sweet Personalities

There's no shortage of pets that need a good home, but how do you best show people that their new pal is waiting for them at the shelter? The Humane Society of Utah has an ingenious way of enticing potential owners to adopt homeless dogs. Photographer Guinnevere Shuster captured the pups' colorful personalities in a series of four small images that look delightfully candid and a lot of fun.

The photobooth-style portraits showcase a lot of tongue-wagging grins, and it's clear that the dogs are ready to play fetch at any moment. Shuster also saw some hilariously goofy faces and intense concentration as the pooches attempt to catch flying treats. These endearing images cast aside the “broken” stereotype and prove that these shelter dogs are going to make super pets.

There are more adorable canines on the Humane Society's Facebook page, and we're happy to see that many of the dogs in these photos are adopted!
