2021-06-29: Looking for a hiking pal? Study buddy? Cuddle companion? I’m your gal! My name is Smokey Joy and I am an 11 years young female Lab, possible Shepard mix. I am in great shape for my age and can still go for long walks and even short hikes. I am the easiest, sweetest dog ever! (Seriously – that’s what all the fosters say about me) – I double dog dare you to meet me-you will fall in love-I promise!
I walk great on a leash, I know sit, lay down, go, come and stay. Foster Mom says I am a really good listener! I am also really good at giving love and snuggling. I don’t know how to play very well, but I am learning.
I used to live with 2 other labs in a not great situation. I was underweight and had yeast all over my skin, lost a lot of hair, and had ear infections. SCLRR got me all spiffed up and I look great now in my beautiful brindle coat! I also got spayed and had a dental cleaning. I am a little shy about meeting new dogs. I just hide behind foster Mom’s legs, I’m not reactive at all. Once I get to know them (10 minutes) – it is all good. I have lived with 5 different dogs in my foster homes. I met a kitty too and I was friendly and gave her a kiss then went on with my day.
So what is the best home for me? Since I’m a senior (I don’t feel like one) I should take supplements and a one story house would be preferred, but I can do stairs if needed too. I love all humans and can’t wait to love and be loved by you (be careful-I might stick like Velcro-but just a little! )
