Joey was found tied up to a bench at a beach in Far Rockaway on a cold February morning by NYPD. Joey was the picture of the shameful result of neglect and abuse. He was malnourished at 48 pounds and suffering from a horrific case of demodectic mange that had advanced to the point where it ruptured his hair follicles, the year-and-a-half old Pit mix also suffered from a bacterial skin infection secondary to the mange that involved three different types of bacteria. Joey has recovered from his ailments and is ready for his forever home. Joey is young and very energetic. He would do best in a home with bully breed experience. He has been socialized with the rest of the pack in foster care but can be pushy at times – Joey likes being the center of attention. If you are interested more information about Joey or would like to meet him please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or (646)436-3625.
