Philadelphia, PA – A bright-eyed dog named Smokey has a big smile and handsome face, but he is virtually invisible to potential adopters. Smokey is the longest resident at the Pennsylvania SPCA shelter, and he has had ZERO adoption applications over the course of his nearly three-year stay.
Yesterday, the shelter shared Smokey’s sad plight, writing:
In just three short days, Smokey will mark THREE YEARS in the shelter.
That’s 1095 days spent sleeping in a kennel. Countless hours waiting for someone to notice him.
And yet, he hasn’t had one single adoption meet in three years.
It is difficult to imagine how Smokey must feel. It is hard to fathom what being completely unwanted hurts his heart.
But the shelter is confident that there is someone out there who can see Smokey’s potential to be THEIR companion.
Smokey’s biography outlines his endearing personality:
This handsome pup is still as happy as can be. Smokey’s motto is “go big or go home” and he loves to go big, doing everything with his whole entire heart. When he cuddles, he presses so tight against his person so they can feel just how much he loves them. When he plays, his eyes are always on the price. And when he snacks, he is a champion eater. He may live life on a fast pace, but the good new is that this includes falling in love with you! It doesn’t take much to be Smokey’s person and in return you will get all of his devotion.
Smokey is best suited to a home without other pets. If you are interested in learning more, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
