There’s nothing like a friendly smile to make a good first impression.

With that in mind, the staff at Front Street Animal Shelter in Sacramento, California, had a mission: to teach Riley the dog to smile sweetly as potential adopters walk by.

The result is one hilarious and adorable video.

You got this, Riley! We have a feeling you’ll be smiling your way into the hearts of a forever family any day now.
