This Happy Shiba Inu Loves To Smile And Is Stealing Hearts All Around The World.

It’s not always easy to tell if a dog is happy or sad just by glancing at their face, but pups like Uni make their emotions pretty clear!

The 9-month-old Shiba Inu from Tokyo, Japan, has amassed a large online following thanks to his heartwarming smile. Close to 98,000 people from all around the world follow his Instagram to get their daily fill of his infectious grin.

Uni’s owner said he’s a delight to have around the house – and everywhere else! They have been taking him with them whenever they travel since he was a puppy, so he has great manners and always makes friends. As for the good boy, he loves toys and is a sucker for any kind of food!

“He is very well-behaved,” his human explained. “When he’s in public, he’s calm, doesn’t bark, or run around, which makes hanging a stress-free and enjoyable experience.”
