Smokey has been adopted! 09-16-2006

Female about 0 old.

Smokey is another "mature" boy that we couldn't turn down when approached by a high kill shelter. As you scroll through our available dogs, you may notice that we have more mature dogs than most. Dogs over the age of 3 can be hard to place - they are the first ones to be euthanized in shelters, usually. Its absolutely heartbreaking to see the number of older dogs being relinquished to shelters - we cannot understand how a family member can be so callously thrown away after years of loyalty. So we say yes to the older dogs more often than not.

Smokey is between 7 and 8 years old, very robust and happy. He gets along fine with female dogs but likes to pick on other males. He would be a great only dog too. Smokey would love a home where he can tag along and participate in family activities!

The minimum adoption donation for adults is $375 and the adoption donation for puppies is $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible when permitted by law. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
