Smokie is a laid back dog (approx. 8 yrs old) - he doesn't bark much at all- he grunts. The only thing that excites him is the vacuum cleaner (he hates the vacuum) and maybe a passing biker. He loves treats - loves to take a walk (but leisure is his way). He loves other dogs and is very friendly. Smokie would prefer to let others fetch the ball - he will run after it - but he won't bring it back - He loves to be petted, scratched and would just love to sit next to someone and watch tv - he also loves to look out a window. Smokie would be a great pet for a senior He has never been crated and always had free access to the house. He is house trained - however.... he will get mad if your suitcase comes out and he knows you are leaving - he jus may mark it when you aren't looking. a little onry! lol I want to find him a loving, nurturing home with someone who is home all day and can pay attention to him. My job and life is having me be away from the house for hours and days at a time and he deserves someone to love him 24/7. Smokie is a great dog and I am heart broken to give him up - but want him to be happy too! He is located in Central Florida near Longwood - I hope to keep him in Central Florida and hope to keep contact with whomever is lucky enough to grab this guy.
