Joey is a 3 year old sweetheart who wound up in a very overcapacity shelter with a broken leg. Once we rescued him, we took him to our Vet immediately for a complete work up. Joey has a fracture which has begun to heal on its own. Joey will be on strict crate rest for a month and then he'll have more X-rays. Joey is also Heartworm positive so we will have him treated for that after we get his leg healed up. Joey is in foster care and has blossomed into a sweet, happy boy despite all that he's been through. You can apply for this wonderful boy now (see below.)
** PLEASE NOTE **
You must be at least 23 years old to adopt. You have to fill out an adoption application before we can discuss any of our dogs or puppies with you so we know as much about you as possible. Almost all of our dogs and puppies have pre-approved adopters so apply as soon as possible. The application is at http://www.joshuafundrescue.org/adoptionapplication
Since we are a Rescue located many states away from where the dog originates, we know nothing more about the dog than is stated in the above description. We arrange to have every dog vaccinated, spayed/neutered, treated for any condition they may have and IF they have heart worm, it is treated at the Vet near the shelter of origin. Our dogs and puppies are either in foster care or at a boarding facility for their mandatory 21 day quarantine period; longer if they are receiving heart worm treatment.
