Hiya all, my name is Smartie and you’re right on the button when you ask “am I as sweet and colourful as a box of smarties”. I’m also a very good-looking and energetic three year old Rottweiler Labrador blend.

Before coming here to Dogtown I was a security dog- something I did not enjoy in the least bit because I’m really more of a Diva than a pugilist. As luck would have it, I was adopted by a lady who realised that my talents lay elsewhere. Unfortunately, due to my background, I did not see quite eye to eye with her furkids and because I was bored, I often went on little excursions to see what the big wide world had to offer. Regrettably this did not fare well with my “adopter” so it was decided I should go to the Dogtown Finishing School for young fur-debutantes for some etiquette fine tuning.

Well what I thought was going to be a distressing experience has turned out to be an absolute blast :) My days are fun-filled and I’m constantly being taught new social skills and little tricks. I also go for long walks either alone or with my caregiver and often with a group of furkids all with their caregivers. We even get a chance to go exploring in the huge play area where we can search and sniff out all the mysterious fragrances emanating out of the long grass – and you know how irresistible that is to a young fur-gal.

All these activities are very casual and relaxing and the upshot is I’m no longer bored and have no need to go on those “little excursions” I used to indulge in. I’m still learning how to control my levels of excitement which sometimes have me jumping up and getting a little over enthusiastic – but honestly who could really blame me with all this love and attention I’m receiving ?

So why not give the peeps at Dogtown a call and pop out to see me for your selves. If you do I promise to be on my best behaviour and will make it worth your while. :)IMG_0852 IMG_1459
