Facts about Joey

  • Breed: Beagle/Rat Terrier Mix
  • Color: Tricolor (Tan/Brown & Black & White)
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Joey is a classy guy! Someone at some point spoiled him, so how he ended up starving and flea-infested in a rural animal control will be a mystery. He is under 20 lbs and ALL leg! He enjoys lounging on the couch next to someone he loves, and is a cuddler in bed at night! He walks very well on a leash, and is reliably housebroken. He has never been crated in his foster home - he is so easy going, he'd rather nap than cause any trouble when left alone. Don't be fooled though! He can have lots of energy for fun when the opportunity is there! He protects the yard from squirrels, and also puts the mailman in his place. Besides those interests, he's a very relaxed, easy keeper. He loves cream cheese and will do just about anything for it! He knows how to sit already! He had some extensive dental disease, resulting in the loss of all of his upper teeth. His lower canine teeth get caught on his top lip, making him extra adorable! He'll need softened food for the rest of his life (wetted down dry food he loves!) but has no other issues. We're guessing he's about 8-10 years old.

Joey has lived in a house before, and will adapt well to most any family who will love him. With the dental work he had, he hasn't shown much interest in toys yet, so we're hoping once he starts feeling better we can discover the player inside. For now, he's content to lounge, nap, protect the yard, and go for walks with his foster brothers.
