The internet cannot handle the cuteness of an adorable Golden Retriever dog with braces on his teeth!
Wesley, a Golden Retriever pup, was recently fitted with braces. He may look absolutely cute wearing them but the braces aren’t stuck on his pearly whites just for show. They do serve a purpose!
On Friday, Harborfront Hospital for Animals’ Facebook page shared a photo of Wesley adorably flashing his metal-clad smile for the camera.
The post explains that while many people are skeptical of doggy orthodontia, braces can help solve medical issues for many animals.
“Orthodontia in pets is normally not for aesthetic purposes, but because of health concerns,” the post reads. “This is Wesley and he needed tooth alignment because he could not close his mouth completely, otherwise.”
The adorable pup’s time in braces will be short and sweet.
“The good news is, the correction needed will be brief, perhaps only a few weeks,” the post says. “Also, it obviously doesn’t bother him one little bit…He’s a happy little guy.”
Nice smile, Wesley!
