What kind of home would be best for me: Smokey is a wonderful boy looking for a home filled with adventure. He is great with other large dogs. He's curious about small dogs and cats; we don't recommend a home with these. Smokey is looking for an active home that wants an adventure buddy. He'd love someone home during the day or someone that can come home and offer him lots of physical and mental stimulation. Smokey would be good with children over 10.
What is my personality like: Smokey was found tied to our gate one morning when our caregivers arrived for work. Wearing a collar with his name embroidered on it, it was clear he'd been loved and his family was desperate. Sadly, his best friend and canine sister had eaten her way out of her collar and was hit by a car and killed in front of our rescue. It's a tragic new start for Smokey, but we know his future is bright!
Smokey enjoys meeting new people and going on adventures. He is very people friendly and loves snuggles and attention. This big boy is a true lovebug at heart and likes being the center of attention. Smokey loves fluffy beds, toys, sunbathing outdoors, and playing with his favorite female canines. Smokey is searching for a home where he can receive lots of outdoor activity (a fenced in yard would be best), lots of stimulation, and lots of attention from his humans. He loves going on walks and seeing new places/things. He walks decently on leash, but does pull quite a bit. His ideal home would consist of a younger couple/family with no tiny humans and a large yard to run and play in.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly
Tips and Tidbits: Smokey arrived in rescue as a stray so we have no history on his life before us. Based on his overall health and condition he is estimated at 3 years old. We celebrate his birthday 8/2/2020.
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
