Joey's fosterer writes...

Joey’s life got off to a really bad start. He came into the Prince George’s Animal Management shelter as part of a cruelty case impoundment. It soon became evident that he was very sick and needed more treatment than they could provide, so the SPCA/Humane Society of Prince George’s County took him in. Our vets examined him and did an ultrasound, finding that the poor pup's intestines were tangled into themselves and creating a blockage. So, we sent him for surgery the very next day, and they found that some of the tissue was already necrotic. Without urgent surgery, he would've died. It was touch-and-go there for a while: his vitals were unstable and he ended up needing post-op fluids and even a plasma transfusion. But he's doing much better now and his puppy-ness is definitely starting to show.

Joey is young so this house-training thing is not perfected. He needs a family that wouldn’t leave him alone for more than four hours. He is very active and playful. He is working on some basic training but gets side-tracked with important puppy activities – chasing balls, playing with his toys, jumping up on his foster mom, chewing whatever he can find to put in his mouth. If you have a fenced yard and time to work with a puppy, come and meet Joey at one of our adoption shows.

If you are interested in Joey, consider letting us know by filling out a (no obligation) adoption application (http://www.pgspca.org/adopt/online-adoption-application/).

Joey is expected to attend the next adoption show on January 21st at the Annapolis PetCo, although there's always a possibility that plans will need to change at the last minute.

We are an all-volunteer group and do not operate a shelter. All of our
animals are in foster homes. We are unable to place our animals outside
of the Baltimore/DC area.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Adopted! Joey, a Bowie Doberman Pinscher puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Doberman Pinscher for sale in Bowie, or seeking a Doberman Pinscher puppy from a breeder in Bowie.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bowie already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Bowie breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Doberman Pinscher breeders who help with Doberman Pinscher rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bowie paves the way for another one to be saved.
