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.
