This post is focused on one specific dog that I meet while photographing adoptable dogs and cats over at the Humane Society of Charlotte. His name is Mr. Smith, aka, Smitty. I don’t know what it was about him but he just really stole my heart!
Smitty was brought to the shelter by a family. I don’t know why he was turned in – all I know is that he was healthy at the time. Well, lo and behold, shortly thereafter, Smitty became very ill and had to undergo exploratory surgery. It was discovered that he had a horrible case of hookworm. During his recovery he was taken to a wonderful foster home where he learned tricks and how to potty outside. He’s now back at HSC full-time but is ready to find a permanent home.
Smitty is a very handsome and unique pup with a wrinkly snout and huge ears. He was such a model for the camera and I hope I can keep him close by should I ever need a striking dog model.
He will make a wonderful pet in an active home. I just love this handsome fellow…
