Cole Princeton's Story...
Saved on my last Week of Life!
Cole was born about January 27, 2013 and weighs about 80 lbs. He is from a very remote southern area shelter. We were told that any dogs who've been there the longest without interest by adopters or other rescues after that weekend would likely be euthanized the following Tuesday.
Cole is a black lab/pit mix who can be loving and goofy once he gets warmed up to you. Cole is in a foster home and crate-trained. He likes to carry things in his mouth and may “steal” things from time-to time. He plays fetch and will lean on you like a typical black lab. He is calm and content with the humans he loves but is better living in a quieter environment (not a lot of human traffic). However, he will never be the dog that you can take to ballgames or family picnics without significant rehabilitation work. He has a “stranger-danger” personality and is very skittish and nervous around anyone he is not familiar with.
His social anxiety toward strangers and when placed in strange situations or environments has made it difficult for us to find just the right adopters for him. We are looking for an adopter local to the WNY area who has experience in dealing with fearful and anxious dogs. So he's not perfect, but he's a big goofy, scared-y cat kind of guy that needs the right home.
Cole enjoys water and does wonderful with his other same size foster dog, but he is a little too rough for small children, small dogs and shouldn't live with a cat. She will need some warm up time as he is shy of humans until he is comfortable with them. He LOVES to play ball and is good about going in his crate. He is very food motivated so easy to train with treats.
The Adoption Fee for this dog is $100.00.
Adoptions fees vary based on adoptability. In general our fees include spay/neuter, all age appropriate vaccines, Home Again micro-chipping & registration, worming & flea control - a 'complete' pet.
Joyful Rescues has no funding except for our adoption fees and miscellaneous donations. Pet care and vet bills are expensive - you must be ready to take on this financial (as well as emotional) responsibility.
YOU MUST BE AT LEAST 25 YEARS OF AGE TO ADOPT A DOG FROM JOYFUL RESCUES
We keep our pet list as up-to-date as possible. As soon as a pet is adopted, it is removed from the list. If a pet is still showing, it is still available for adoption.
Our primary goals here at Joyful Rescues are to re-home pets and save them from becoming homeless in the future, educate the public on pet care and spaying/neutering to control the pet overpopulation, to spay/neuter every pet before they leave us and spay/neuter as many pets, belonging to the public, as possible within our means.
