Meet Josie!

Josie has the most perfect Griffy face and she loves everyone. In fact she expects everyone to love her right back and they always do! We call her Queen Josie because she thinks it is only right that she has the prime spot on the sofa next to you and also that she sleeps right next to you in bed. In Josie's world the only creature more important than her, is you! Belly rubs are one of her favorite things & she will immediately roll on her back the second you reach toward her.

Josie gets along well with other dogs and is 98% house trained. She will use a doggy potty pad or go outside if it isn't too terribly cold. She walks well on a leash and expects you to be as proud of her considerable talents as she is! She will do best in a home where someone is home most of the time. She does not like to be crated, so will need to be gated in the kitchen or bathroom when you are away.

Her adorable face, self confidence, intelligence and happy manner are very hard to resist! All she really wants is to find a special person to call her very own. She will make it her mission in life to give you all the love and joy she yearns to offer you.

Queen Josie is 6 years old and weighs 13 lbs. She has a small frame so we estimate that she should weigh around 10 lbs. She is on a diet to attain her goal! Josie is spayed, current on her vaccinations, heart worm negative and is on preventative. She is located in Morris, Illinois.

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

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.
