Meet Joey!

Joey is a 7 pound Griffon mix, about a year old, who was found wandering the streets with an eye injury. Unfortunately, the eye could not be saved, and had to be removed. His surgery is completely healed, and he is a normal, happy, personality plus dog who absolutely loves everyone.

Joey loves to be held, but will also lie quietly at your feet. He goes wild for squeaky toys and treats. He loves to sleep in your bed, curled up in a little ball next to you. Joey wants to be with people, so his new owner will need to be able to spend a great deal of time with him.

Joey is extremely intelligent. In less than a week at his foster home, he learned the command to sit, he walks on a lead, and will go to the door when he needs to go outside. He is crate trained, housebroken, and gets along well with other little dogs. This special little guy deserves a forever home and a second chance. Due to his tiny size, he would do best in a home without small children. Joey is heartworm negative and is up to date on all his shots.

Joey is located in the Dallas/Fort Worth, TX area.

If you would like more information, contact Linda. If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.

He follows TC everywhere. What TC does, Joey does.
