Hey you! Smiley here! They call me Smiley because I just can't help but smile most of the time. I am about 3 years young. I was transferred to Satchel's from Sarasota County Animal Services when it was determined I was extremely sick. Thankfully, my human friends at Satchel's and the wonderful Beach Veterinary Clinic made sure I got the care I needed to get better. Unfortunately, my friends found out I have heartworms, which is why I would love a nice home to relax in with low activity while I go through treatment. I am selective of the canine company I keep, but I do seem to like most dogs in passing. I am currently not allowed to play as we are preparing me to start heartworm treatment and I need to stay as calm as possible. 


**Smiley is a foster to adopt which means he would love a family to foster him until he is medically cleared. When he is, the foster family may decide to adopt or continue to foster until he gets adopted by a furrever family!

About Satchel's Last Resort

About Our Shelter...

At Satchel's Last Resort, we provide lifelong shelter to dogs deemed unadoptable, nurture and train borderline dogs, and offer temporary shelter to adoptable dogs whose owners can no longer care for them. We believe all dogs are created equal and deserve to live the life of a beloved pet.

Each dog that comes to Satchel’s has its own unique and personal history. We get to know each dog individually – his favorite toy, his favorite game, his favorite foods. The residents (dogs forever with Satchel's) and guests (adoptable dogs at Satchel's for a temporary stay) live in an airy shelter with spacious kennels, go for three romps or walks per day, and even take the occasional car ride to let their fur flap in the wind. Most important to us -- we keep our dogs safe from other residents and from humans who may want to harm them.

Trainers work with the dogs a few times a week to teach them that they can trust humans and other animals. We actively seek forever homes tailored to the needs of our adoptable dogs so that they can live the rest of their lives among a family of their own.

At Satchel’s Last Resort, we believe that by harnessing the unconditional love that the dogs in our sanctuary put forth everyday, the world becomes a brighter place for animals and people. Each and everyday we try to give a little of their love back – back to the dogs and back to our community.
