Your Next Best Friend: Smoke


Hello. My name is Smoke and I’m a young male American Staffordshire Terrier. I prefer to be called a pitbull terrier as I find that other name kinda stuck up. And as I always say, “Where there’s Smoke, there’s happy.” No fire here. Like so many of my breed I am friendly, energetic and love other dogs, despite the wrong idea so many people have about pitbull terriers. I’d love to have you come visit and meet me; I think I’m a fine breed ambassador. We’re a hidden treasure, really.

This past week two of my canine colleagues were joined with new owners. The Rappahannock Animal Welfare League (RAWL), 160 Weaver Rd., Amissville, is open 8 to 1 daily. Call 540-937-3283 or visit
