DSCN8401ART_498772_JoeyIMG_0221IMG_7147We failed at fostering Joey in 2017, thankfully. Joey was the Charlie Brown Christmas tree of dogs: health problems, extreme dental problems, separation anxiety, stalker dog, a penchant for peeing on the couch, and later aggression that may have been caused by his brain tumor, but as you can see, he was a great dog. I was hesitant to adopt a senior dog, but I can tell you it was the best experience ever. The time was not as long as I wanted it to be, but it was  twice as sweet because I knew Joey would not be mine forever, and we made a difference in Joey’s life. If you help animals, thank you for your work. If you need  or want a dog, please adopt.

Special thanks to:

Lollie, for bring Joey to me!

United Hope For Animals and the folks who work at Baldwin Park, where Joey was housed and would not have survived. These folks are amazing:
