Meet Joe Dirt
Age: 8 years old
Location: Houston, TX
Adoption Fee: $250
Everyone needs a dog that looks at you like Joe Dirt does.
You read that right, to no fault of his own, Joe Dirt has been returned to the rescue. His parents developed major health issues that limited the care they could provide for him.
He doesn't really look like Joe Dirt any more. He's adorable. And he LOVES his person! Joe Dirt is an 8 year old male powder puff and is ready to fall in love with you!
If I had to describe Joe Dirt in one word it would be faithful. I used to say that he was a stalker but the more I paid attention to him, I realized that he's a faithful little guy. He only has eyes for his person. He gets along fine with other dogs but doesn't try to play with them and doesn't necessarily seek comfort from other dogs (like the breed tends to do). He's somewhat of a loner. He follows his person everywhere they go.
I feel like Joe Dirt didn't have a person before coming to the rescue (he's part of 23 dogs saved from a hoarding situation) so now he spends his time soaking up all of the love and affection possible. He does tend to get a little protective of his person and growls at other dogs sometimes. We are working on this! He is learning that there is enough love to go around.
Joe Dirt would do well with someone who is home most of the time. He will be fine as an only dog or with siblings as long as you understand that he only has eyes for you.
So what do you think? Is Joe Dirt your new best friend? He is certainly ready to be yours!
