A stray Staffordshire bull terrier cross has found a new home thanks to her incredible smile.

Sybil was brought to an animal rescue shelter earlier this month after a dog warden found the pup wandering the streets.

The warden captured the dog and placed her safely in the pound.

But Sybil quickly found herself a new home after melting people’s hearts with her massive smile.

The pup was brought to the rescue charity All Dogs Matter near Highgate, North London, last week.

The pup was adopted after her owner spotted her smiley selfie on Twitter

After an admirer posted a picture of the grinning two-year-old dog to Twitter, Sybil went viral.

Over the weekend Sybil finally found her forever home after an animal lover known as Frankie contacted the charity to say she wanted her.

According to the new owner the pooch was named Sybil after Lady Sybil,a character in the hit series Downton Abbey.
