Displaying his distinctive blue tongue as he smiles, saucy Smokey is 48 pounds of fun and frolics. Although shy at first blush, he warms almost instantly to strangers, revealing his sweet, friendly and affectionate nature. Saved from a high-kill shelter in Kansas, he's settled happily into his foster home, accustoming himself to its hardwood floors, and romping indoors and out with the other dogs. He relishes the love and praise he's receiving, gets along with the resident teenagers and is both leash and housetrained. Especially adorable when he lies on the floor, hind legs splayed outward like a frog, smiling Smokey would thrive in an active and attentive home or with another playful dog his size for company.
