Smokey 1154

Smokey arrived as a transfer into the Sammi Fund for Seniors, after a rescuer in a neighboring county saved him from being shot because he is "too old." Smokey says he knows he is a more mature boy, about 11 years old, and perhaps he is a bit on the portly side, but he still LOVES life and wants to find a new person to share his remaining years with.

The volunteers adore Smokey, who is always described as CUDDLY for his first trait. He is housebroken, walks well on leash, listens well and responds to sit and stay commands. He is somewhat selective about his dog friends, so needs a slow and patient introduction, but once he decides a dog is a friend, he enjoys their company. Cats, unfortunately, Smokey views as animated squeaky toys, so he requires a no-cats home.

Smokey, in spite of being overweight, still gets around pretty well. In fact, during his stay with us, he has been losing some of that extra weight and is rediscovering his playful side!

His perfect home will have many slow but consistent walks to help him bring his weight to a more manageable level, and someone who loves giving belly rubs, brushing, and of course cuddling.

Smokey has all the charm and advantages of a senior dog - no unexpected puddles, no jumping up on people, no frenetic energy level - just wisdom, patience, and love. If YOU need rescuing, Smokey may just be the one to rescue you.


Smokey comes with a 30-day money-back trial adoption period.

Spay/neuter, worming, microchip and all age-appropriate shots are always completed before placement, and are included in the adoption fee (suggested minimum $50, or SENIOR for SENIOR - adopters over 65 may name their own adoption fee); more gratefully accepted!)

Can't come to Republic? Don't let that stop you! We have monthly transports to both the Seattle area and Spokane, delivering adopted pets to their new owners. If you can add a little to your payment to help us cover our volunteer driver's expenses, that would be great!
