Hi, I'm Dinah. I'm five and have been at the shelter for 3 years. I want a home! I am active and smart and need a family that will keep me busy and teach me fun things. I'm good with teenagers,male dogs but no kitties. Please take me home.

Smithtown Animal Shelter
410 East Main St
Smithtown, NY 11787
Bambi is a beautiful 6-year-old terrier mix. She has been here at ARF for way too long. She is a staff favorite, and for all the best reasons. She is affectionate and lives to please! Bambi radiates love and all she wants is her own human to share it with. She is super active and would enjoy an active home; she is also quite the cuddler. If her smile alone doesn't win you over, her personality will! This housebroken, obedience trained, outgoing gal needs a home!
