Up for adoption in Texas and New England: Joy Sunshine!
Joy is an affectionate dog who just wants to be close to her human. She is silly and quirky and will make you laugh every day with her leaps and full-body wag.
Joy bonds quickly and has good recall. She enjoys playing fetch, (she will even toss the ball around all by herself,) and is motivated by food treats. Joy gets along well with the cat in her foster home, and frequently tries to get the cat to play with her, but without success.
Joy loves other dogs, but lacks appropriate meet and greet skills, and doesn't always respect other dogs' boundaries. She does best with careful introductions and confident dogs who won't be intimidated by her exuberance.
She is housebroken but not crate trained. She loves to chew on bones and has not displayed destructive behaviors with us, but will shred a squeaky toy in the blink of an eye.
She really is a good dog. A bit hard-headed, but one of those dogs who will let you wrap your arms around her and hold her tight. She is not mouthy, except that she sometimes likes the inside of her mouth rubbed. She has been around kids very little but liked them. She is working on being jumpy.
She is up to date on routine vaccinations and spayed.
