This is Joe and he is a purebred Norwegian Elkhound! He is 9 years old And recently neutered. His owners' fell on hard times and were in horrible debt. They lived beyond their means one could say. Joe was a well cared for house dog, but when his owners left their home they had no place to take Joe, so they left him tied out at our rescue partner's house in TN. He is a very sweet and docile guy.
