My name is Smudge and I am a handsome fellow, if I do say so myself. I am ready to be someone special’s little shadow.

I am smarter than your average pup and always ready to learn new things. I am motivated by both food and praise. I can already sit, stay, come, lay down, and fetch; but I can also use special talking buttons to tell you when I want outside, when I’m hungry, or when I’m ready to play. Pretty soon, I’ll be doing your taxes for you!

I am house-trained but it is true that sometimes loud noises can surprise or scare me which may cause an accident. I’m not a fan of loud storms or fireworks and like to know that I’m safe when those are going on outside. I can be picky about some things, while I enjoy having a bath, I don’t really like to be brushed. I like my natural beauty to shine through.

I love a good walk or car ride, just as long as I can be with my humans. My ideal family will always have someone at home and a quiet, calm environment so that I know I’m safe and they will take care of me if I get scared. I enjoy playing fetch and squeaker toys, just watch out for your socks because they look like toys to me too.

I’m ready to snuggle with you and get all the scritches you can provide. Let’s hang out together and soak up some sunshine.
