Smiley is a neutered, 9-11 yr. old silky. (Similar to a yorkie but a little bit bigger). He's a quiet boy who loves to be near his person. He's a bit shy and does take a little time to relax. He is doggy door trained and doesn't really like crates. He doesn't have accidents in the dog room but may require a belly band if given free roam of the house until he settles in. Although Smiley gets along with other small dogs and basically ignores cats, he may want to be an only child so he can be the center of attention. He would love a home where mom or dad is home a lot. It doesn't appear as if Smiley has had it easy at all. He's looking for a second chance so he can see how a boy like him should really be treated.
