Big Joe's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Big Joe's Story...
I met Big Joe back when I was visiting the Tennessee shelters for the very first time. He was at a shelter that does not put down dogs. So I told him I'd be back for him but he's have to be patient as I had to work on the other dogs on death row.

Big Joe had a skin condition when I first met him. He had significant hair loss and was very itchy. We had him tested and it did not come back as mange. However, we treated him with antibiotics. Soon he stopped itching and his fur started to grow back. Poor guy.

This boy has a zest for life. He like a giant puppy weighing in at 90 pounds. Actually, he is still very much puppy. He's probably only a little over a year old. His cranium is enormous. When I met him, I was amazed at how big he was.

He's a very friendly boy but is still a little mouthy. When I say mouthy, I mean he likes to play bite. So he doesn't bite down hard. Also, he doesn't realize how big he actually is.This is the only reason why I'm requesting he doesn't go into a home with kids. Big Joe has been so patient waiting for his day to come where he's be in his forever home. You won't regret bringing this tiny horse into your home :) Please contact Antonia at kiwi_tonia@comcast.net

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Big Joe, a Wakefield Great Dane/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Great Dane/Labrador Retriever for sale in Wakefield, or seeking a Great Dane/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Wakefield.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Wakefield already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Wakefield breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Great Dane/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Great Dane/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Wakefield paves the way for another one to be saved.
