Hi, I’m Joey! I’m looking for someone patient, special, and kind to love and cuddle. I hope you like shadows because that’s what my foster parents call me because I follow them around wherever they go.
They say I’m special because I like to spin. Hey! Spinning is fun! And I’ve been doing it since I was a puppy (10 years now) so I had no idea it’d make me special.
I’d really like my forever home to have someone around a lot if possible. It’s probably best that I’m in a home with adults only since fast movement or someone grabbing at me can startle me. Oh! Guess what! I learned to use the dog door in the last few weeks and boy does that make life easier--for everyone. So if you have a dog door that would be a huge plus.
OK, so I must be honest and tell you my flaws. I’m not a fan of getting my nails trimmed or going to the doctor. Seriously. I’m not kidding. And I do have a few health idiosyncrasies that my foster parents can tell you about. One thing is, I need special food that keeps my tummy from getting sick and I need to eat and drink on steps. I know… strange. But my foster mommy made a set of steps just for me and they get to come with me to my new home.
There are a couple of other things to discuss as well if you’re interested in being my forever mommy or daddy. I really hope to find one soon so I can claim my new parents.
