Smokey is shy with people, but he loves walks and food so that is the key to his heart. He needs time to get comfortable in new places and with new people, but he will accept treats and warm up quickly. He is not yet comfortable being petted or handled by people, but he loves doing activities with other dogs and learning from them. Smokey absolutely adores other dogs here at the Sanctuary. He is very active and playful when he's around them, and they help him build his confidence. Smokey was born in 2014 and came to Best Friends from a humane society in Idaho. He can jump fences, so he is considered a flight risk. In a former foster home, he was a bit of an escape artist, so he will need a home with a secure enclosure and someone with a watchful eye. At the Sanctuary, he is working on crate training, getting into and riding in a car and getting more comfortable with new places. He already walks well on a leash. Smokey will need some time to adjust to a new home, but with time and patience he will make a wonderful companion.
