Meet Joe (Seville)

Joe (Seville) ended up at Chicago Animal Control in November 2020 as a stray. We took him into rescue and he was in rough shape - he had lymes disease, was 20 pounds underweight, had an upper respiratory infection, and raw skin on his nose and paws.

Joe is now a healthy 75 pounds, neutered, UTD on vaccines, and housebroken, Joe’s age is unknown, but we’ve been told he’s somewhere around 5-7. He may be younger or older, but he’s playful and definitely seems about that age range. He does have vision loss and was likely born this way. Joe can see up close, but his vision is limited. He lived a very rough life before coming to GSR and as a result has hip dysplasia that went left untreated and some arthritis. He is being kept lean, on a quality diet, on joint supplements, and on pain meds. Joe gets around pretty well but ideally would have a home with limited stairs. He is excellent with other dogs and and currently lives with a cat. Joe is a lover of all toys, especially his squeaky one and will greet you at the door with one. He loves to tug and will play-bite at times. Due to his limited vision, we’d recommend a family with older children. He is very much a talker, so he wouldn’t be the best fit for condo or townhome living.
