This gorgeous guy is Smokey. Smokey was found left to die while tied to a tree outside the Friday Market, a place where animals are sold under inhumane conditions. Our rescuer saw a video that someone had posted of him and had a friend save him and take him to the vet.
When Smokey arrived in the States, we discovered that he has hip dysplasia, a very common genetic condition for German shepherds that causes severe hip pain and lameness. Smokey recently had surgery on one of his hips to enable him to have a pain-free, normal life. It went very well and he is healing nicely. He will have surgery on the other hip soon and we anticipate that he will be ready for his forever home in June.
Smokey is a friendly pup that does well with older kids. He does tend to resource guard his food and toys, so he would be best in a home as an only dog.
We would like to have Smokey adopted around the Baltimore area. He will come up to date on his shots, neutered, and microchipped.
If you are interested in adopting him, please fill out an online application. We will then contact you to conduct a home visit and, once you are approved, a $100 deposit is required.
