PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

Look. At. That. Smile. Look at it!

This is Wilbur. He's just over 60 pounds of American Pit Bull Terrier mix for you to love. It's a love you can be sure this 4-year-old boy is more than happy to return.

Discovered as a stray by an Arizona Humane Society employee, Wilbur is a big fan of being petted (he'll totally lean in for more), and, as you can see yourself, he's always ready to greet companions with a big ol' goofy grin.

Pit bulls often get a bad rap. Many call them a "misunderstood breed."

Last year, the Arizona Humane Society put together a list of 10 reasons to adopt a pit bull like Wilbur, and they're just as true today as they were then. (It's a really great list.)

You can come down and see Wilbur now at the Arizona Humane Society's Campus for Compassion. You really have to see his tremendous smile for yourself!
