Hi, my name’s Joe. Up until the past couple months, I was a lucky guy. I lived with my best friend down south for 7 years, but he passed away and I am still grieving. His family wasn’t able to keep me, so I went to a shelter for a little while until Survivor Tails read about me. I am up north in MA at my new foster home now, waiting for a family to come along to give me the love I lost.
Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I am a loyal guy who loves to get my ears scratched. I’ve never met a stranger, and I get along well with cats. I like to lay on the floor and just hang out watching Netflix. My foster dad loves sci-fi, and I think I’m starting to love it too. If anyone says R-I-D-E, I go nuts! I love riding in the car. Do you like going for walks? I do, and I am GREAT on a leash. I don’t like to pull because I like to stay right by your side. I don’t pay any attention to dogs that walk by me, either. I’m happy to just stroll around. Also, I am housebroken and I don’t have food or toy aggression. My favorite toys are ropes – gimme a good rope, and I’ll show you a good time.
Did I mention I like kids? I’ve been around a kid that was 7 years old and I was a perfect angel. I’m a pretty big guy – about 60 lbs – but I am gentle. You can see that I have some old age, but that doesn’t stop me from having a lot of love to give. I might need some help jumping in and out of the car, or (if you want me to) getting on the couch. I’m ready to meet my family and I hope to give you a big kiss very soon.

About Survivor Tails Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Survivor Tails Animal Rescue is a 501c3, non-profit, all-volunteer organization that exists to rescue, rehome, and rehabilitate homeless, unwanted, abused, and neglected dogs and cats and place them in loving and responsible forever homes. More than 4 million cats and dogs die each year in animal shelters across the country due to overpopulation issues. That's why we're here. Our mission is twofold: to find these unwanted animals loving homes of their own and to work with communities and like-minded organizations to stop the issue of overpopulation from the top. We don't want to just put a bandage on the issue, we want to prevent animal homelessness from the getgo.
