Facts about Joey

  • Breed: Chihuahua/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) Mix
  • Color: Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Joey is a 2 year old chihuahua/terrier mix, weighing about 7 pounds and tons of personality. He enjoys daily walks and playing with toys. He would be an ideal dog for someone who seeking a buddy to spend lots of time with, and a pet who will play an active role in their lives. Joey seeks your companionship, and as a young dog, wants to play and enjoys activity. He is not a couch potato, but he does want to snuggle up with you at night and when he takes naps.

Joey had surgery after we rescued him to repair his hind patellar (kneecap, a condition common in chihuahuas and small breed dogs), so we would like to see Joey go to a home who is willing to keep him on lifelong joint supplements (fish oil, glucosamine/chondroitin, etc.) to keep his legs healthy and keep him on a high quality diet.

Joey would do well as an only dog if his owner has ample time for him each day, but he would also do well with a playmate of any size (he's been around both large and small dogs). He is not suitable for home looking for a lap dog, as he is very puppy-like and wants to be a participating member in his new family. His new owners should be able and prepared to take a leadership role with him.

If you would like to meet this cute little boy and consider making him a part of your family, please contact us. If you are seeking a little buddy dog, a pal to join you in daily activities, Joey is your guy. He is a sweet dog who is looking for his forever home. Joey's adoption fee is $125 which which helps us cover his medical care and fostering needs. He is microchipped and neutered.

About Saving Shelter Pets of CA

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a 501(c)(3) Non Profit Organization. We network and rescue animals in danger of euthanasia from Southern California shelters. Pets are rescued from these shelters and housed in a foster home until a permanent home is found.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Pets are available to meet either at the foster home or your home. Contact us for details.

Our Adoption Process...

Upon initial inquiry on one of our pets, we begin the process by having all potential adopters complete an adoption application. If approved, we then set up a face to face meeting with the pet you are interested in. A home/yard check is required prior to adoption. Once adoption is finalized, an adoption fee is collected, an adoption contract is agreed to and signed by both parties, and the animal is turned over to it's new adoptive owner/family. Follow ups take place during the first month to insure the pet and the household is adjusting to the pet, and any issues, questions or concerns are addressed.
