    Hello, my name is Smilie!
    I am looking for my forever home who can help me work on building my confidence.

    I am an incredibly smart boy who knows some basic commands, like sit and lay down, shake a paw and I am working on stay. I am house trained and I go to the door but I am not vocal, so my family needs to watch when I need to go out.
    I am shy and unsure of everything new and will need a family who will give me time, patience, slow introductions and reassurance to new things (new houses, stairs, new vehicles, new people). I need constant reassurance in new situations.
    I am unfortunately quite scared of small children and men, and will try to bolt when they are around, so I cannot go to a home with kids under 12 and need several introductions with men before I am comfortable around them.
    I would love to have the companionship of a larger dog, as they help with my confidence and I love the company. I think small dogs, cats and other small animals are for chasing.
    I do not like being crated, I am free range please.
    I am an amazing soul that needs to find a family who will work with me and love me and continue to build my confidence and give me a full and happy life.

    Are you Smilie’s new family?
