My story

Thank You DelleBovi Family!

Flynn was born about October 4, 2014 and weighs about 22 lbs.  He is as cute as they come and was released from his puppy making days in a puppy mill in West Virginia.  The 'millers' made a call to the humane society and said they no longer needed the services of 29 dogs and would they take them.  The shelter is a kill shelter due to space and could not handle so many dogs and so they asked if we would take them.  How could we not!  So, we squeezed and adjusted and were able to take them all.  Sadly, Flynn has failed two adoptions as after a decent length of time they still could not touch him nor would he stay in the same room as them.  He is wonderful with the other dogs here and is now considered a Joyful Rescues Sanctuary pet.  He can seldom be touched and if he is it is not for long and when we must 'catch' him to be groomed we must use a towel to protect our hands because he will bite.  He does happily live inside the house with the humans who live and work here as long as they are not forcing themselves on him, which we do not unless absolutely necessary such as hair trimming.  It is felt Flynn is living his best life right where he is and is a very happy boy.  From Dr. Rasnake: There is mild pegmentary keratitis which is likely from hair rubbing on the surface of the eye.  This condition may be the result of improper hygiene/grooming.  His future family will need to be diligent to keep hair cut short around his eyes so this does not worsen.  He still can see, but there is some cloudiness. 

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.
