This is Smitty, a handsome Chinese Crested hairless dog, about 4 years old, and approximately 16 pounds. Smitty is energetic, and very loving and sweet with his person. He is a VERY happy dog that loves to run and play, and is very affectionate. He enjoys snuggling up right against you for a relaxing nap. With his long legs, he's an excellent hugger!
Smitty likes to play fetch in the yard with a ball, and runs so happily when outside. He also enjoys a good squeaky toy in the house and will enthusiastically return it to you (most of the time). He does quite well on leash walks. Although he takes a block or two to settle down, he has learned to potty on a leash and enjoys "tagging" the neighborhood. He is not a marker in the house, and does well on his house manners with frequent trips outside. He can be trusted out loose in the house, and has shown no destructive behaviors.
Smitty enjoys meeting new people and dogs out in the world and is quite friendly, but with submissive dogs, he can be bossy and territorial. He would prefer to be the focus of attention and would do best an only dog. He is being fostered in a home with cats, and there are no issues there. The cats do mostly keep to themselves, but interactions have been neutral.
We'd love to see Smitty adopted to a home where his owners are willing to give him plenty of attention and exercise, and keep his positive training going. He would love to be the kind of dog that goes places with you-- like trips downtown to the park, or running errands, or even a hike in the woods!
Smitty is being fostered in Greenville, SC, and applications are welcome at any time. He has recently had a dental cleaning and his teeth are gorgeous. He is also up-to-date on shots, neutered, and microchipped. Inquiries are welcome at email@example.com.
