Smokey isn’t half as grumpy or serious as he looks.
The Animal Welfare League of Alexandria is hoping to find a home for a staff-favorite pup: Smokey the three-year-old pitbull terrier mix.
“[Smokey’s] a supersweet little guy just looking for a family who can show him the ropes!” said Gina Hardter, the spokesperson for the AWLA. “Don’t be fooled by his serious and formal look; Smokey is a big goofball at heart.”
Though Smokey is three years old, he’s still a big puppy at heart. Hardter said Smokey has the same manners and energy of a young dog. Hardter said Smokey’s favorite thing to do is curl up in the lap of a best friend.
“No one can convince him that he might be just a bit on the big side for a lapdog,” Hardter said. “He’s looking for a family who can help him take advantage of all of his energy and maybe teach him some tricks and skills along the way. He’s clever and treat-motivated and would love to give additional training a try.
Due to lingering COVID-19 concerns, interested parties should schedule an appointment to meet virtually or in-person.
