An American animal rescue shelter has come up with a very cute idea to help find its dogs new homes.

Professional photographer Guinnevere Shuster takes photobooth portraits of the dogs for the Humane Society of Utah, often with hilarious results. The pictures are then posted on Facebook, and have proved so popular the animals are often snapped up immediately.

We publish some of our favourite doggie photobooth portraits here. Note that the dogs in this gallery have already been adopted. See the Humane Society of Utah's Facebook page for the latest pups in search of a new home.

We're not sure how much time Cupcake has spent in shelters as she was in another shelter before she came to us, but we think she's ready for a home of her own! She sits in her kennel waiting for people to approach and then starts the butt wiggles as soon as you make eye contact.The Humane Society of Utah

Fish gotta swim… birds gotta fly… And Giles gotta herd. He is a Border Collie and that's what they do best! Giles is five years young and his desire to tell small children and objects with wheels what to do is strong. For this reason we recommend a family with no small ones.The Humane Society of Utah
