Hi, I'm Smokey
German Shepherd Dog | Adult | Male | Large
We don’t know what Smokey’s life was like before he was surrendered to the shelter, but it’s safe to assume he learned to appreciate affection. He loves having his head and tummy scratched, and wants to be where the family is. He’s smart and sweet. He’s a bit shy with new people, but is easy to win over, especially if cheese is involved.
A tennis ball is his current favorite toy, and he actually brings it back if you throw it, although he doesn’t always drop it. He enjoys playing with his foster brother and is interested in meeting other dogs.
He’s a bit of an escape artist, having figured out how to open his crate, and open trash baskets have a special appeal. But other than that, Smokey is a perfect house guest. Invite him to be part of your house!
