Meet Smudge

Hi, my name is Smudge! I'm a PURPLE pawprint, which means I will fit well into a home that meets some specific criteria. Here is what would work best for me in my new home:

-Personality: Affectionate, bouncy, strong, playful
-Can Live with Kids: Sturdy, dog savvy kids 12+. All kiddos will have to meet before finalizing an adoption.
-Can Live with Cats: Unknown history - Smudge has a high prey drive and would do best living in a household without cats.
-Can Live with Dogs: Not recommended for now - Smudge is pretty nervous/under-socialized with dogs and would do best as your only dog for the time being.
-Can do Apartment Living: No
-Potty Trained: Appears to be
-Bite History: No
-Positive Reward Based Obedience Classes Required: Not required, but would be beneficial!
-Energy Level: High
-Needs Medical Procedure Before Going Home: Nope, good to go!

Meet Smudge - a BIG and bouncy 15 month old girl who is ready to steal your heart (and all of your treats!). Smudge is a 95 pound bundle of silly, goofy girl. She is people oriented, loves to have her belly rubbed, and put her head into your lap. Smudge is still learning just how big she is and needs reminders that she is not a lap dog, although she really wants to be! She can be a bit apprehensive with new situations and will need slow exposure to every day things. A steady, predictable routine will be this girl's key to success!

If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an application on our website ( or in person at our facility. We recommend calling into the shelter after your application has been submitted so our front desk can give you next steps on our adoption process.
