I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Oh my, what became of my life?
Josi was born about September 16, 2004 and weighs about 75 lbs., it's rather hard to tell right now as there is so much fur which we'll be managing to improve...somehow. This poor elder lady was left in a home just filled with cockroaches to the point that the finders of the dog took her to a car wash to bathe her since the roaches and their eggs are likely to be in so much fur. Her owner ended up in a nursing home and won't be coming back so Josi came to live with us for awhile so we can find another, compassionate, home for her. She is sweet as anyone can be and is good with other dogs and cats alike. She did well on her two hour car ride here and we are told if she is off leash she will hang around with you. She loves attention and affection and you will be the person she waits for at the other end of the Rainbow Bridge! Josi does get cranky, and may snap, when being groomed, perhaps due to discomfort, so we had our vet knock her out and shaved her down. She is, somewhat, lame in the back so supplements and, perhaps, pain killers will be in her future. She looks just a mess right now and the sadness shows in her eyes. We want to find someone that will make them sparkle again!! The Adoption Fee for this dog is $75.00.
Adoptions fees vary based on adoptability. In general our fees include spay/neuter, all age appropriate vaccines, Home Again micro-chipping & registration, worming & flea control - a "complete" pet. We accept CASH or Visa/Mastercard ONLY.
Joyful Rescues has no funding except for our adoption fees and miscellaneous donations. Pet care and vet bills are expensive - you must be ready to take on this financial (as well as emotional) responsibility.
YOU MUST BE AT LEAST 25 YEARS OF AGE TO ADOPT A DOG FROM JOYFUL RESCUES
We keep our pet list as up-to-date as possible. As soon as a pet is adopted, it is removed from the list. If a pet is still showing, it is still available for adoption.
Our primary goals here at Joyful Rescues are to re-home pets and save them from becoming homeless in the future, educate the public on pet care and spaying/neutering to control the pet overpopulation, to spay/neuter every pet before they leave us and spay/neuter as many pets, belonging to the public, as possible within our means.
