Smore's Story

Meet Smore! This handsome 1 1/2-year-old Doberman Pinscher Mix would love to go home with an active and engaging family who can put this gorgeous boy’s brain to work! Smore originally came to PAWS from one of our rural transfer partners in Alabama, and has spent a bit of time in a foster home.   His foster mom noted that even though their time together was short, Smore is a “charming, goofy, and energetic boy who wants to be where you are at all times - he doesn't need to be in your lap, but just wants to know what you're doing, whether it's fun, and whether there is a chance of getting some love." When he's not following people around the home looking for love, he's playing with toys. He absolutely loves all different kinds of toys, but ask him and he’d tell you his all-time favorite kind are stuffed animals!  Smore gladly trots around the house with them! He can get a little too attached to his toys though, so offering him a high value treat will help make sure he shares them with his humans when play time is over and it’s time for some much-needed rest and relaxation.

Smore can be very excitable as he is a young boy who has a lot of energy and love to give.  He would benefit from a home that is willing to help him work off that energy in a positive way by taking him for long walks through the neighborhood.  He would also make an amazing running buddy and would enjoy being right by your side when it’s time for a jog!  Since Smore is such a big and lively boy, he’ll need a strong and confident handler with good leash control and that won't be leaving him alone for long periods of time. Due to this excess energy, Smore would do best with a family without young children. This big, goofy boy would love to make his way into your heart and find a place where he can call home!  If you feel like he’s the perfect fit for you, come and meet him today!
