Today is National Puppy Day — a day to celebrate the adorableness of all four-legged fur babies. Fair warning: If you don’t have room in your home for another puppy you may want to step slowly away from your screen, because looking at these adorable pets is going to set your heart to pitter-pattering. Research says that photos that reveal a bit of a dog’s personality definitely help prospective dog owners fall in love before even meeting their potential new housemates. So the Utah Humane Society used a clever photo booth to help get their dogs adopted. Check out the personality of these furry friends.

And don’t forget our Puppy Love Story from Valentine’s Day, starring Brit + Co pups Turkey Temple and Miss Brie. From Tinder to their first kiss, their love story photo series will make you smile.
