Smitty was found as a stray and turned into a local animal shelter. He needs someone who will be very patient with him and let him warm up to them.

Smitty is a very happy boy that loves attention, but it takes him a little bit to warm up. He is looking for his forever home and ready to start his new life. Smitty gets along great with other dogs so he could be the one and only or share a lap with another fur sibling. He's not real fond of cats though and will be quick to let you know this.

Smitty sometimes resource guard his things as he wasn't used to having things of my own. He was found as a stray and living on the streets is scary. He had to fight for his food and anything else he wanted. Smitty greets his favorite caregivers with hugs and kisses and can't wait for them to pick him up. I had a rough start when I first got here because I didn't trust anyone but now I feel comfortable and I know that I am well taken care of and I trust that the other half of my heart is out there waiting on me! 


Can’t have a dog of your own? Have a soft spot for old, sick or hard to place dogs? It only takes a $20 a month donation for me to be your virtual dog! I need at least 10 virtual adopters (sponsors) to help cover my monthly costs.  If I have medical challenges I need even more! r having to leave your home, you can have your very own online dog that will send you update emails, make Facebook posts, and be eternally grateful for your support!  Go to the donate link at the top of the page for instructions as to how to donate.

I love my Virtual Adopters!
