Smokey's adoption donation is $475 and he is being fostered in the Central Ohio area. He has been neutered, microchipped, received his rabies, distemper/parvo, canine influenza and bordetella vaccines. He tested negative for heartworms and was started on prevention, as well as flea prevention. Smokey also had a dental cleaning with extractions. He requires a home with a strong veterinary medical history. 

Smokey came into rescue through no fault of his own when his owner could no longer take care of him. He is a laid back chill guy that has adapted well to rescue and would love to have a family of his own. Smokey does well on house training as long as he is kept on a schedule.  Smokey loves to go on walks. He enjoys checking in with his neighbors and their dogs to say hello. He loves to go on car rides to see what new adventures lay ahead, he likes to be the co-pilot. Smokey is on daily eyedrops for dry eye and takes the medication like a champ and we do have him on prescription food for allergies and he is improving but will need continued monitoring. Smokey also loves to cuddle beside you for relaxing time watching TV.  He would love to be your TV buddy for the ballgame or a Hallmark movie--he's a flexible TV watcher.

PLEASE NOTE:   If you are viewing this biography on a website other than the Ohio Fuzzy Pawz website like Petfinder, Adopt-a-Pet, or another search engine (the OFP website is www.ohiofuzzypawz.com), not all information transfers to partner websites in some instances.  If you go to the  individual webpage of our dogs , you will be able to get more information each dog.

Visual breed identification in dogs can be unreliable so, in many cases, we are only guessing at the predominant breed or breed mix.  We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

Our Adoption Process

The adoption process has several steps involved. Please review prior to submitting an application. Our adoption process is detailed here:  http://www.ohiofuzzypawz.com/info/adoption

Our volunteers work very diligently to process each application and we try to ensure that we are making the best match possible for each dog.  We do not schedule meetings with dogs until an application has been approved.  It can take up to a few weeks to process an application or as little time as a few days, from the time you submit an application, please be prepared to adopt as we cannot hold dogs.

Special Requirements

Some dogs may have special requirements (for example, medications, a fence) -- if you apply for a dog, please be sure to read over the biography completely to see if there are any special needs and if you're home would be suitable.  If we indicate on the dog's biography that a fence is required, this means your home must have a physical fence.  Other dogs may require a "strong vet reference" which indicates that we are looking for a home that has a documented history of veterinary care with previous pets. 

The first step in our process is to submit an online adoption application at www.ohiofuzzypawz.com/forms.  The application MUST include the personal references and veterinary, grooming, and landlord references (if applicable) and their respective contact information.  If you do not include the references and the contact information, your application will be delayed as it CANNOT be processed.  Once the references have been successfully completed, a home visit is then scheduled when a rescue representative can meet all members of the family or residents of the home.  No application is approved prior to the home visit being done.   At that point, the Directors will discuss any and all applications on a foster dog and make a selection--in many cases, there are multiple applications for each dog, so please be understanding that our only priority is the successful placement of each of our foster dogs.

Out of State Adoptions

We do adopt out of state to outstanding applicants, however, our process requires a home visit, so out of state adoptions can take longer.  We do not ship our dogs, adopters should be prepared to pick up the dog in Central Ohio.
