Joy came to Players for Pits with her sister from a high kill shelter in Oklahoma. These two little sisters were at especially at risk because both suffered from genetic glaucoma which for Joy resulted in her losing both of her eyes. You'd hardly know it as Joy has adapted to getting around her new foster home amazingly well!! She plays and romps around the yard with her foster siblings just like her sister. Visitors seeing her outside for the first time don't even realize she's missing her eyes at first.
Joy does great in a car. Just curls up and goes to sleep or quietly plays with toys in the back seat on the way to her destination! She also does very well with the other dogs she's in foster care with!
Joy would ideally find a home with another canine companion that would perhaps be a help with navigating her way, or a home where people weren't away for long periods. She does not have problems with separation, but since Joy can't see, long periods without interaction of another dog or human may not be the best for her.
