Stacie Owen's cockapoo stole her mother's dentures and appeared to be giving everyone a toothy grin as they got lodged in his mouth.

Stacie thought something was amiss when then the animal was silent before making the discovery and posting the footage on social media.

She explained: ''I wondered why he went quiet and found him in the bedroom with my mum's old dentures,

''He likes to hold things in his mouth, he feels very proud when he has something. Whenever we go on a walk he will always bring something home.''

The clip has gone down a storm on Facebook, where it has been shared over nearly 7,000 times and has over 2,000 comments.
