Smith

Smith wandered up to a good Samaritans house, nobody claimed him so he was dumped at the shelter. He was very anxious in that environment but the staff knew he was a great dog, young, sweet nature and gorgeous, they raised money to have him fostered by a trainer who has worked with him and will keep him until transport! He will take a few days to settle in and warm up but once he does you will have a loyal, intuitive and amazing friend for life.
