Smokey is a 2 year old “northern designer dog” weighing all of 25 lbs ! He was a fostered, and kept isolated from other dogs for the required period, in Thunder Bay by Mark Huver on behalf of Finding Them Homes – James Bay Pawsitive Rescue.

Volunteer pilot Adrian from Pilots ‘n Paws Canada offered to fly up to Thunder Bay and deliver Smokey to our rescue in Barrie. The weather did not cooperate for the planned date, so the flight was re-scheduled and completed on Saturday April 11th !

MAP OF SMOKEYS JOURNEYGround transport would take close to 30 hours, return trip. Adrian had a strong tailwind, Smokey’s flight was 2 hours & 36 minutes.

As a result of the weather delay, Adrian was able to fly a pug to his forever home in Thunder Bay … but that is another story!
