Interview with Super Smiley, That Flash Mob Dog

Smily and Angel the Dog

Super Smiley is this month’s Top Dog. He is a mixed breed pup with a killer smile that will charm the pants off of just about anyone. Perhaps this is how he can convince so many people that adopting rescue dogs is really the best way to go (and we could not agree more, Smiley!). His wide grin has captured the attention of Betty White, Katherine Heigl, Dick Van Patten and other celebrities too. He also has been the inspiration behind an award-winning radio show and documentaries, has received an Honorary Mention award from the Humane Society of the United States, and is the creator of nationwide touring flash mob and a humane education program for kids called The Super Smiley® Kindness Program…
