4 YEAR OLD SMOKEY WITH THE LOVELY WHITE SOCKS AND NOSE FACES DEATH BECAUSE HIS FORMER OWNER ‘MOVED’. SMOKEY ‘loves to play’ and ‘doesn’t mind being picked up’ says his former owner of him. Yet they left him to fate when they moved without SMOKEY who is now in danger of being killed tomorrow. He was scared during his ACC evaluation, no small surprise, but this guy is a sweetheart who is used to a home and being with people! Please offer to foster this lovely plush playful fella!
