Smokey is approximately 3 years old male pit mix, dog friendly and kid friendly. No cats please. Smokey was a owner surrender and lived with small children. He play appropriately in the yard with his shelter buddy Kingston. He's high energy and would do great with a closed in back yard or with a 4ever parent who likes to take long walks or jobs. Smokey does well with training but will need a patient parent to spend time with him with practicing his training exercises. Would do best in a home with another dog friendly dog.
Act quickly to adopt Smokey. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.
