Joey came to us as a 7 month old from one of the big rescues who were going to put him to sleep! He was an owner hand in, at 7 months old. It was clear from the start that something wasn't right with him, his legs were all over the place when he walked! When you called him to come to you, he would look at you and run but he would end up a little way to the side of you! He was somewhat un-coordinated. The vet said it was a minor neurological condition that didn't require any treatment. It doesn't seem to bother him really and he manages just fine. He also had one of the worst cases of kennel cough we have ever seen with thick mucous coming out of everywhere. He was so young and so ill that the kennels we were using took pity on him and brought him into the house to nurse him. Joey did really well there and so he stayed, he was part of a large pack and things went really well for a long time. However as he has grown older he has become a bit jealous of the others at times and has had some nasty fights with some of the other male dogs there. It is with great sadness that to protect the elderly dog there they feel that they must re-home him.
Joey is a really good fun dog with so much love and affection to give, he is a real snuggler and enjoys a very close relationship with his humans. He would benefit from a home as the only dog getting all the attention but he may also be able to go with the right female, he would need a successful meet and greet and the right dog though. He is great when out and about, no problems with other dogs, great re-call, loves going on trips and travels really well. Joey is a bit of a character and is very talkative, he likes you to know what he wants! He's such a lovely, lovely, boy bless him.
