My story

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

Helloooooooo!! My name is Smoke. My foster mom likes to make up songs about me, and sometimes she calls me Smokey, Smokey Bones and Smokestack.

Life for me hasn't always been great.....

My last person kept me chained on a very short chain in the kitchen or crated, unless they wanted to use me for a stud dog. Then, they stopped feeding me. I don't really know don't know why they did that to me.
One day a lady calling herself a Guardian came and took me on a car ride. My owner told the Guardian that the neighbor had poisoned me, so they took me to the doctor. I was so happy to break free from those chains. Truth is, I just needed food, and love.
The next day, I met my foster mom. Although she loves me very much, she tells me that I can't stay with her forever. She promised me that she would love me until my new person finds me.   I have never really had the opportunity to be a puppy, so now.....I am making up for lost time.
I love my foster kids, but I I'm going to need some time and patience so a home with older kids would be best. My biggest downfall is that I just get too excited and want to jump. I loved my foster brothers though (3yrs & 11yrs) and am very protective.

I need a patient person/family that can give me lots of exercise and is willing to set boundaries and continue to work on my manners. Im a big boy and I like to go full speed.   I am not really a fan of smaller animals, like cats. They look like toys, but they don't like when I play with them. I like some other medium to large easy going dogs but would require a slow introduction.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Our foster application process is the same as our adoption process. We want to ensure our dogs are matched with the right family and home situation. You must be 21 years or older to foster or adopt and a home check is required for every application. Our adoption fee is $175. This fee covers part of the cost of pulling the dog from animal control, ensuring the dog is fully vetted with all shots, and spayed or neutered before the adoption is final.
