Smiley was a breeder her whole life and has finally learned what it is like to be loved. Chinese Crested Dogs are notorious for having bad teeth and she has lost most of hers due to neglect so it is difficult to tell her age exactly.

She is still EXTREMELY nervous with new people and would probably need to be in your home for several days before she would even let you touch her. She has a bite history with people who did not approach her properly. On two separate occasions, a vet tech and a potential foster parent picked her up shortly after meeting her (despite specific instructions not to do so). She bite them and drew blood in both cases.

She is very sweet and playful with other dogs and coexists peacefully with cats. She is crate trained and loves her crate like her little den; it makes her feel secure. She loves all kinds of chewies, treats, stuffed animals, etc.

The reason she is named Smiley is because she smiles when you talk to her (once she has grown to know and love you)

Most people aren't looking for such a special case so she is likely to be a permanent sanctuary resident. Please consider donating to her continued care.

About Freetown Sanctuary

About Our Rescue Group...

Freetown Farm Sanctuary is a labor of love - an animal rescue and sanctuary nestled in the hills of Smith County, Tennessee. Freetown’s founder and CEO, Deborah Coffee-Walker, has followed her calling and passion to take care of God’s creatures since she was a little girl. “If people truly knew how many beautiful animals get euthanized every day, they’d never again run to a pet store or a breeder to find their perfect companion.” Even as a little girl, she would routinely save animals on “death row” in the local pound, and then go door to door, or hang out in store parking lots until someone fell in love with her rescue and took them in. Please surf our site and let us know how we can help you…or how you can help us. Together, we know we can make a difference.
