- Animal ID#: A311903
- Dog Name: Joey
- Dog Sex: Male
- Approximate Age: 2 years
- Joey is seeking an adopter with patience and an open lap. He came into the shelter scared of the world, but has blossomed with his foster family, where he has become a happy and affectionate dog in the safety of the home. He will still take refuge in his crate or under furniture when feeling anxious, but is just as likely to hop in your lap for some kisses. He’s currently fostered with three senior dogs, and is respectful to them, and has had playdates with other young dogs. He isn’t always sure right away, but once comfortable, will play for a long time. Joey is new to walking on a leash, but is doing really well! Passing strangers is a bit scary, but he is gradually gaining confidence. It helps tremendously when he walks with one of his foster siblings, so we’d love to find an adopter with another playful dog in the home to help with his socialization and confidence. Joey is also extremely agile and has great leaping ability for a small dog! Obstacle course, anyone? If you think you’re ready for a special dog with huge potential, but who will require a bit of patience, submit your application for this love bug today.

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested into a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
