Smokey the bear ... a legendary hero.

Well, our Smokey is legendary for being smart, handsome, very obedient and adorable.

Smokey came to us from a senior couple who is in the process of being loving parents with their granddaughter. In a perfect world, such a choice would never have to be made between child and beloved family pet, but we're not in a perfect world yet.
Devastated. Broken hearted. Saddened. The grandparents had to say good bye to their Smokey. And life goes on.

Smokey is in foster care with 2 black labs, one female and one male. Smokey was a little apprehensive in the initial meeting. But the other black labs were patient and knew Smokey would need to relax and trust his new foster mom and them. Walking as a pack played a big part in helping to relax Smokey. Kenny G playing and a soft bed didn't hurt either.

Smokey gets excited when things, small dogs, children and runners move too fast and scare him because he is young and hasn't had a lot of exposure. He will need time, patience and someone who has dog experience to appreciate that he was an only dog who tries very hard to be in a pack. He is extremely obedient and willing to learn all his foster Mom presents to him. So far things are progressing very nicely.
Little children would get knocked over when Smokey gets excited because he is very much a child himself. Teens would be great for him to run, jog and walk with.

Smokey also smiles. Yes, I said smiles when he gets happy and it makes the foster Mom smile back.

Smokey is already showing his foster Mom that he knows his car manners when secured in the back and quietly enjoying his rides. Smokey will need a fenced in yard to play in.

Smokey is a Black Lab mix, 4 years old, 55 pounds, UTD on vaccinations, neutered, housebroken and micro chipped.
