This adorable little rag-a-muffin was a very sad boy when he first came to the shelter. His family had suffered severe financial devastation and could no longer take care of this precious boy. That first day was not a good one for Smitty. He was confused and sad and waited for his people to return. We were heartbroken watching the little guy suffer. We tried to comfort him and show him a good time, but he was having none of it. Smitty is too taken with people to suffer for too long though, and his cheery nature soon got the best of him. Although it can still take a few minutes for him to completely warm up, once he does it's all fun and games. Smitty loves to play and loves to be cuddled. During play time he bounces about and uses his growly voice to tell us he's having a great time. We think he's a riot. Smitty has some allergy issues that we've been able to resolve with special baths and medicine. He is thrilled to be feeling so fine and making the best of his visit until his forever family comes to pick him up.
