From The Greeneville Neighbor News

By Janet Medcalf

As the October “Adopt a Shelter Dog Month” neared its end, there was one little dog named Smokey that had yet to find a forever home.  

Featured on the Greeneville-Greene County Humane Society’s Facebook page during October, Smokey had been with the Animal Shelter for a year after he and his littermates were relinquished to the Humane Society.   

All of Smokey’s littermates were quickly adopted, but Smokey was to wait much longer before his new family came for him. 

Smokey, a one-year-old male Bassett-Dachshund-Aussie mix, with short stubby legs and beautiful brown eyes, is sweet enough to melt your heart. His long floppy ears are a sight to behold. 

With all that cuteness, we just couldn't understand why he hadn't been adopted.  

He has always been a favorite amongst Adoption Center volunteers and staff, who love to watch Smokey run and play in the yards with his doggie friend Mickey.  

Each day everyone hoped that Smokey's luck would change and he would get adopted.  

On Oct. 31, the very last day of "Adopt a Shelter Dog Month," Smokey's dream came true when Ted and Betty Daugherty from Pennington Gap, Virginia, came to the Adoption Center and fell in love with him.

The Daughery,  having adopted two dogs from us four years ago, were hoping to adopt another dog as a playmate for the other two. They decided that Smokey would be just perfect. 

They loved his happy personality and his cute face. Smokey's tail never stopped wagging as his new family completed the adoption paperwork. 

We are so happy that our little Smokey has finally found a family to love him. What a happy ending!

We invite everyone to come visit our adoption center to spend time with our other adoptable dogs and cats.

The dogs love to go for walks, and the cats enjoy playtime in our cat room while they are patiently waiting for someone to adopt them.

The adoption center is located at 950 Hal Henard Road, Greeneville. Hours are Monday through Friday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m., and Saturday, 11 a.m.-4 p.m.

You may view our adoptable animals online on our Facebook page, Friends of Greeneville-Greene County TN Humane Society, or on our website at
