Ducky has become an Internet sensation after a video of her smiling went viral on Instagram.

People couldn't get over how sweet and cute to Maltipoo looked as she simply smiled over at her owners as they filmed her.

One person commented on the post: "Cuteness overload!", while another shared: "Such a cutie pie!"

Ducky's owner Gillian, 27, lives with her partner in Northern British Columbia, Canada, and the adorable canine after adopting her in 2018.

Speaking of the beloved pet, Gillian told Metro.co.uk: "Ducky’s always had a funny little muppet face, but after her last groom where we had to take off a lot of hair (it was just too shaggy and got out of control), her smile started to shine more than ever."

Speaking of the day she adopted Ducky, Gillian explained: "My boyfriend was out golfing that day and I must have left him 20 voicemails telling him I had an emergency and he needed to call me back.

"An hour later he did, and I convinced him that this was our dog and he told me to go for it.

"So I called this woman on Facebook (I was sobbing, I waited so long for a puppy of my own) and I told her this was my puppy. The woman definitely thought I was crazy."

Gillian says Ducky is a very smart and loving dog, and loves being around people.

"She loves being outdoors, playing fetch, and just being a farm dog, even though a magpie or crow could carry her off", she said: "Duck is pretty adorable, and every time we go out with her she attracts a crowd.

"So it makes sense that people enjoy her cuteness online. I posted the video because I wanted to cheer others up, and I think it accomplished that!"
