Under that ordinary looking exterior is a soulful and quiet personality. He's described as a bit aloof - preferring to kind of do his own thing; however, one of those ‘things’ is following people around. Joe has one of the coveted ‘Barn Dog’ positions, which means that he’s allowed to roam freely with the other ‘Barn Dogs’ around the property during the day while staff are working and doing chores. He would be a good match for someone who simply wants a dog to hang out with, not someone looking for a velcro-dog that wants to be smothered in loved. This pooch is perfectly content to lay out and enjoy some sunshine. Are you looking for a dog that just likes to chillax? Justice Joe may be the pal for you!
Update: we’ve discovered that even under that cool demeanor, he did revel in the attention of getting a spa day. He seemed to enjoy the bath and he stood still for toenail clipping and ear cleaning. Staff says he was a ‘perfect gentleman’ in the tub.
