I Got Too Big!
Crow was born July 27, 2015 and may top out right around 75 lbs. He is a beautiful, big, boy that was purchased by a truck driver, but he got too big for the truck so he had to come here, or so we were told. He is good on leash and loves car rides. He is great with the other dogs (loves his dog buddy here and would do best in a home with another dog) and is fine with cats and has been around children as young as 13 and all was well. Crow had some vet work done before arrival, they were taking good care of him, so upon calling the vet's office we were told that he had bitten the fiance a couple days ago bad enough for her to have stitches. Our intake form asks if a dog has ever bitten anyone and 'no' was circled. Since he was still here we asked him and the answer was 'no'. We asked the vet if they were sure and they said yes, so we asked the owner again and the answer was still 'no, never bitten anyone'. So, alrighty then, no use beating a dead horse as the saying goes. Upon writing this Crow has been here a few days and we've not seen any aggression. He did try to jump and, maybe, tried some dominance tactics at first, but that just doesn't happen here. We are all very good at being the dominant beings and since the first evening he has been a complete pleasure. There are men and women coming and going all day and he's been absolutely fine. We don't know what circumstances lead to the alleged bite so we all need to keep it in mind and so we are seeking a home where the humans have experience dealing with dominant type breeds. He was completely friendly with us on intake. He sleeps through the night and knows sit, down and shake. He is good about going in his crate. Crow will catch what you throw with delight and he loves ice cubes. Crow also appreciates a nice dip in the pond and thinks it's fun being surrounded by koi. O.K., so we really love this guy and the right home is going to be very thankful he was thrown away. The Adoption Fee for this dog is $250.00.
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.
