Facts about Joey

  • Breed: Miniature Pinscher
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Unknown
  • Size: Unknown
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 11460373

Joey is a sweet 5 year old Minpin that was dumped at a shelter in MD by his owner. He was very scared and overwhelmed, and quite traumatized. He is now in a foster home with other minpins and learning to trust. He is learning to be part of a pack, and is doing well. He was used to having his human to himself, and is learning in his foster home that he doesn't need to use his growly voice when the other dogs come near his humans. He really wants to trust and show love. He rolls on his back for belly rubs and will nudge your hand for more petting. He is house trained and loves running around the big yard at his foster's home. Joey would do well with another older dog or as an only dog in a quiet household where his 'person' is around alot. He is super sweet and has so much love to give. Joey deserved better, and now he will get it.

You can save animals like this one by becoming a foster home for a dog in need! Fosters are like way stations between high kill shelters and forever homes. We need fosters so that we can save dogs before they are euthanized at the shelters. If you are interested in becoming a foster, please check out our information about fostering on our website:

MMR covers the vet care, food, and tools to get started. You supply the love. Fostering saves lives. Sometimes a foster home is the only thing standing between life and death.

About Mutts Matter Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

A Little History... Mutts Matter Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non profit, all volunteer based organization, with combined rescue experience of over 15 years. We work in conjunction with shelters and other organizations to help save animals on death row, the strays on the street, or ones in unsafe living conditions. We adopt in the DC, VA, and MD areas, with a few exception out of the tri-state area depending on the dog and situation. We are driven by love, compassion, and hope.

All of our rescues enter their new home spayed or neutered, up to date on all shots, and are micro-chipped. If we take a dog into our rescue, we do our very best to ensure that they are healthy before going to their new “furever”home. With enough hard work and dedication, we hope to be able to empty the shelters one day soon.

Our Adoption Process...

We require you to fill out an adoption application on our website at
The application will ask for both a vet and personal reference. Both will need to be verified. After those are checked, a pre-screener contacts you to discuss your application.
Once that is complete, they screener decides if they are recommended for a home visit. If the home visit goes well and they are approved to adopt, then they can meet the dog.
Our adoption fee includes the cost of routine vetting, spay/neuter, and microchipping.
