“It’s tough to stay married. My wife kisses the dog on the lips, yet she won’t drink from my glass.”

He looks like a film star that just happens to be a … dog!
His smoldering good looks would play well with any movie audience as he rushes to save Timmy from the well or guide the bus full of elderly persons to safety away from the tornado.
Our hero’s name is Smoki, and he’s all of 9-months old. An owner surrender, he’s full of energy, vim and vigor. His brown and white coat shimmers in the light as he waits for his next adventure.
Smoki is a mix between a Labrador retriever and a Siberian husky, a 60-pound blend of intelligence, cunning and whimsy. He’s a big, friendly guy whose favorite pastime is playing fetch and getting as much human attention as possible.
In order to keep Smoki’s focus on learning new and exciting commands, it will take dedication on the part of Smoki’s pet parents to give him a daily balance of training, exercise and play.
Smoki gets along with most other dogs, although his canine co-star should not be another male with dominant tendencies. He’s mainly at ease with most smaller or medium female dogs and enjoys playtime with them.
If you’re ready to assume the responsibility of molding Smoki into a fantastic canine, then Smoki is ready to save the day. Hold on, little Timmy!
