Smokey Joe

Sex: Male

Breed: Pomeranian/Husky x

Estimated Date of Birth : 08/28/2022

Smokey Joe is as handsome as he is big. Well big for a Pommie anyway. At 22lbs our best guess is he’s a pomski (since that blend is all the rage right now) or a Keeshond/Pomeranian x. He could also just be a really big Pomeranian (they’re called throwbacks since the original breed was much larger than the breed we see today). Your guess is as good as ours but whatever he is he’s stunning!

This poor boy has been passed around at least 4x over the last year. We remember getting tagged on him in July 2023 and another time 6 months before that. Sadly we weren’t able to help previously as our foster spots were full but he lucked out this time. We’re not really sure why he was passed around so much. He doesn’t have any major behavioral issues and although a touch shy when he meets new people he warms up within a day or two. His days of getting passed around are over and we’ll make sure to find his perfect match and a family who will love him forever.

Smokey Joe has a moderate energy level. He’s playful and really enjoys other dogs. He has a tendency to pick a “favorite” dog and focus his attention on that dog. We think he’d do well with another fun and playful dog he can pal around with and he’d do best in a home with older respectful children. He’s working on his house and crate training skills and is a big ole lover once he knows you. He bonds quickly with his humans, probably because he’s never had a consistent human in his life and loves every ounce of attention you’re willing to give his way. If you think you can give Smokey the forever home he’s been waiting for get your application in today. This sweet boy is ready for a home that will love him always!



Here’s what you need to know about adopting a cat or dog from Marley's Mutts:

  • Each adoptable pet will be introduced on Facebook

  • Each pet will have its own profile here on the website

  • All pets will be spayed or neutered

  • All pets will be micro-chipped and shots will be up-to-date

  • Each pet has their own application to complete—make sure you use the right one (linked from their bio)

It’s important to us that each pet goes not just to a great home but to the “right” home. Our foster parents work with each pet to get to know them and their needs.

We try hard to list all of the pertinent info about each pet on the site so you can choose the pet that will fit with your family/lifestyle. If you don’t see a specific pet on the site, he/she is not ready for adoption. Please be patient and wait until the bio is listed. We don’t decide on a “first come, first served” basis but rather on a “who’s the very best fit.” So, don’t panic.

It’s not a quick process. We receive dozens of applications for each pet so please be patient. If you’re shortlisted you’ll be contacted as soon as possible.

If selected to meet one of our pets and you currently have pets, you’ll be asked to do an in-person pet intro; we don’t do the long-distance adoption thing. If you live out of town, plan a fun road trip to meet the pet in person.

Don’t be discouraged if your application is not selected. Remember, we get a lot of them! Trust us, the best fit for you is coming.

If you’re lucky and you do adopt a super amazing pet from Marley’s Mutts, don’t ever hesitate to reach out to us for training, medication, or behavior questions. We’re here for you, and your pet.
