Meet Joy, a 1 year old Scottish Terrier Mix. Joy's name tells you almost everything you need to know about her! She is an always happy, friendly, inquisitive, and energetic pup! Joy is a very smart girl that enjoys spending her days doing doggie puzzles, working on basic training commands with her foster mom, chasing the laser pointer around the house, and she is always up to go for a walk or play in the back yard with her furry foster brother. Joy is a highly trainable dog, who's foster mom thinks she could one day be an amazing agility dog! She will sit and kennel up for treats, is house trained, and loves to run and play. She gets along well with other playful dogs and likes kids, but is still learning not to jump up on her human friends and can be a little rambunctious so a home with older children would be best. Her forever home would be one that does not have cats.  Joy likes to sing the song of her people on occasion so would not be a fit for apartment life. Joy will benefit most from a home with a strong leader who will continue training with her, and one that is active and enjoys keeping this smart little girl busy!

About Needy Paws Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Needy Paws Rescue, located in St. Louis, MO, is devoted to saving animals in need, whose lives are in danger at high kill animal shelters & animal controls, those who are strays, have been abandoned or whose family has faced an extreme emergency, regardless of their size or breed.

Our organization is made up of Volunteers who have been involved in various animal rescues in the St. Louis area and we plan to use our knowledge & experience to make a difference. We believe spaying & neutering is a very important step in keeping pets healthy & happy, plus it helps decrease overpopulation. All of our rescued animals will be spayed or neutered, they will be microchipped to ensure they are identifiable if lost or stolen and they will be current on all of their vaccinations before going to their Forever Homes.

We are foster-based and all pets stay in approved Foster Homes that have passed inspections, reference checks and are qualified to take care of our rescued animals while they wait for their Forever Family. We are dedicated to finding the best Forever Homes, and will be making home visits and conducting veterinarian checks & reference checks to ensure the pets will have a safe, loving, happy home. Forever Families will be taught how to care for their pet and learn how to get the most out of their relationship with their new family member. We also have an after-care specialist who will be in contact with the families after the adoption to see how well they're doing together
