'Smallville' Star -- Having a Ruff Week Before Prison

5/29/2011 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Smallville" star Sam Jones is less than a month away from being sentenced in his major drug case and he's spending one of his few remaining weeks of freedom in Holland ... looking for dogs.

Jones goes in front of a judge on June 22 to be sentenced for conspiring to illegally sell THOUSANDS of oxycodone pills and he could get as much as 70 months in the pokey.

But before that happens, Jones is going to spend the first week of June in Holland, where he will handpick dogs for a canine-protection business he owns called Platinum K9.  PK9 sells personal protection dogs to high-end and celebrity clients ... as well as to police K9 units. Ironic, no?

Jones got permission from Uncle Sam to head overseas, according to court docs filed this week, and will have his passport returned to him for the trip. The docs say Jones has to submit his itinerary to court officials before the trip and report back to them within 24 hours of his return ... or else.

While the authorities in Holland are trustworthy, the borders between EU countries are wide open. When I went to France from the UK by train there was no one with customs and immigration whatsoever at the station when I got off. This guy could go anywhere in the EU and probably get out to anywhere else in Europe or elsewhere if he really tried.

I hate that title because he never was a star in the show. He acted a part but was not a star and didn't stick around after season 3.

Ironically, he convincingly plays a drug dealer in a film called KREWS, which is a kick-ass great film. He's very good in it. Either he's playing himself or he's a great actor. Talk about life imitating art.
