Meet Smokey, he's an older fellow most likely around 8-10 years. He came from a rescue organization in Missouri that needed to close their doors so Smokey and a few others had nowhere to go. Not sure of his breed, I believe is is some type of heeler. He weighs about 30 pounds and won't get any larger due to his age. Smokey came to that rescue when it was witnessed him being attacked by multiple dogs. Despite that he's fine with other dogs as long as they are quieter and not jumping on him. He will need a quieter home with no small children because it takes him awhile to feel comfortable. It took him 2 weeks here to finally come out of his crate on his own and walk around the house and go in and out with the other dogs. Smokey is quiet, never heard him bark and he is housetrained. He will do best in a home where he can go in and out on his own until he's comfortable. Even thought he's a older guy he still deserves a chance at a loving home. UPDATE: Smokey has now become quite comfortable here. He gets excited when I come home and prances and dances around. He's good with all the dogs that are here and have came thru here. He's quiet and just wants to hang out on the dog bed watching everything going on. He actually may be a little younger then originally thought as except for the graying on his face he shows no physical signs of aging. He still and most likely will always be shy. But now he will take a treat from my hand but has never came to be petted although I think he would love too, just too timid. He's actually a great dog to have if you have a quieter home. Small children, who would not understand and rush up on him, would not be good for Smokey. I'm sure that perfect home is out there somewhere for Smokey. Smokey is neutered and up to date on his vaccines. If you would like to meet him or hear more about him please call Jody at 708 269-6965. Smokey's adoption fee is $75.
