Joseph is a large purebred male who is five years of age. His former owners lived in an area where they had no fence and Joseph was kept on a chain. They decided to give him up and we were contacted. We brought him in to rescue in April 2011 and discovered he was heartworm positive. Joseph has completed his treatment and is now heartworm free! *Special thanks to Kreg Newman for sponsoring his treatment.
Joseph is a great dog all around! He has been raised with children, cats and other dogs. The reason one of his ears tip over is because he was injured in a dog fight. Several years ago, another dog charged at the child Joseph was in the yard with and he jumped in front of the child, preventing the little boy from being injured. Joseph was bitten in the head by the other dog causing damage to his ear.
Presently Joseph is being fostered in a home with another female shepherd, Heidi. They get along famously. Joseph spends time indoors as well as outdoors. He rides well in the car, too. He is a calm dog for the most part but loves to play with toys also. Adopting an adult dog has many advantages. "What you see is what you get". Personalities are formed so there are no surprises as to what a dog will grow up to be like.
