"And she gave the most sweetest kisses," Santina Sanders, the volunteer at Douglas County Animal Shelter in Georgia who took this video, tells The Dodo. "She was the cutest thing ever."
Matilda is just a couple of months old. She was recently been picked up as a stray and brought to the shelter with irritated skin and a belly full of worms.
To Teresa Bowles-Chiofalo, with Pibbles & More Animal Rescue, Matilda was clearly "nothing short of perfect."
So Bowles-Chiofalo went to the shelter on Wednesday to collect Matilda and get her to a foster home. And this is what the joyful little dog looked the whole way there — her face in a smile, her tail going a mile a minute.
