Her owner, Kayla Harvey, has shared captured plenty of photos of Penelope’s smile, winning her loads of fans online.

Kayla said: ‘Penelope is an incredibly silly and quirky girl.

‘She was a puppy the first time I saw her smile.

‘I see it happen the most when she is super intrigued by something, or when she is getting a good scratching session and she is feeling kind of blissed out.’

Mother-of-four Kayla, who is chronically ill, says Penelope has helped her get through many tough days with her smiles, ever since she got her as a puppy.

Kayla said: ‘I was not looking to get a puppy, I was thinking an older dog as I didn’t think I could handle a puppy, with my health.

‘But then I came across Penelope.

‘She and I fell in love instantly and became inseparable and are now together 99% of the time.

‘She seems to be able to sense when I’m not feeling well and cuddles up with me for hours on end.

‘On days when I’m in a lot of pain and smiling doesn’t come easy, she can make me laugh with her silly antics and expressions.’
