Meet Joey-Paws in Prison Participant

JOEY . Male/Labrador Retriever
3 to 4 years old / 70 pounds Adoption Fee $250

Joe is a 3 1/2 year-old Labrador Retriever mix, weighing 72 pounds. He is neutered and appears to be housetrained. He walks well on a leash and is easy to handle. Joey came into our rescue with heartworms so he is currently under treatment, expected to handle the treatment very well. Joey has been described by volunteers as:
*Handsome, like velvet
*Gentle and mild-mannered
*Cool, calm and collected
*Observes his surroundings, very alert
*Gets along well with other dogs
*Totally enjoys the company of humans!

Because of his size, Joe will be placed only in a home with a sizable and fenced-in backyard so he can get the exercise he needs He would be fine with school-aged kids, but may be a bit large for the wee ones.

Here's Joey's secret that we only recently figured it out. Joe is hearing impaired, which is why his other senses are so keen and sharp. Joe needs to also go into a home with another companion dog that can alert him to sounds he might not be able to hear himself.?

Current on all vaccinations, heartworm negative on monthly preventative, microchipped

Joey is in the Paws in Prison program where dogs receive obedience training. This dog is expected to graduate from Paws in Prison on 7/29 . The dogs in this program are trained under the AKC Canine Good Citizen standards and are specifically selected to be family and companion dogs. They spend 24 hours a day with their trainers. For that reason, they will do best in homes where they are primarily inside dogs and spend lots of time with their families. The adoptive family will receive their training journal. This journal documents everything from entering the facility, daily training progress, and interactions with trainers.
