Little Smokey has not been a lucky dog. He is about 1 1/2 years old and has spent most of his life on a chain outside his home in KY. He was taken in a few months ago, but that person was gone a lot. So he is in a foster home at this point, but the fosterer has kitties, and Smokey doesn't like the kitties. Smokey is good with kids and good with other dogs, playing well with the foster family's Yorkies. Smokey loves to play fetch and is kennel trained. This little guy was half starved when he lived on the chain, and now he is being well fed and cared for. But he needs the love and security of a forever family. Please consider Smokey as your new family member and help him to learn what being part of a family really means!
