I’m discovering the good life after a pretty rough start! I get hugged a lot, get regular meals (and treats!), and have a yard to run around in. I’m still a little nervous around new people – that’s understandable – but after a while, I’m the life of the party!
I like to pick a toy out of the toy box, usually a ball or a bone. Then I toss it in the air, and chase it. The bones don’t go far, but those balls are really tricky! Sometimes my foster brother gets it first, then we have to chase each other to see who gets to keep it.
I really like having my foster brother around, and when I go to my forever home, I need to have a forever brother or sister. Having a canine companion makes me feel more confident. Click on the video up above to watch me and my foster brother Samson demonstrate the wide variety of doggy play styles! (I'm the one with the blue collar)
I don’t really like being in my crate, but I put up with it when no one’s home. I’d really rather be out with my family when they’re around. Would you like to be my family?
If you are interested in Smokey, consider letting us know by filling out a (no obligation) adoption application (http://www.pgspca.org/adopt/online-adoption-application/).
Smokey is planning to be at the next adoption show, July 22nd at the Bowie PetSmart, although there is always a chance that plans will need to be changed at the last minute.
NOTE: We are an all-volunteer group and do not operate a shelter. All of our animals are in foster homes. Due to our requirement for a home visit, we generally only place animals within an hour's drive of Washington, DC. Questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
