Meet Josie

Meet Josie, a precious 9-year-old senior gal in search of a loving hospice home to live out her golden years. Sadly, Josie has cushing’s disease but is on medication and doing wonderfully. In addition to this diagnosis, she also has mammary tumors and is awaiting a vet consultation. This 30 lb. pit/lab was found abandoned over a year ago and has been at Danbury Animal Control ever since. The pound is nowhere for a senior dog to be - she is very kennel stressed so we would like to find her a home or foster placement quickly. Will you be the angel that Josie is looking for?

Josie absolutely loves being with her people and is happy to accept all the pets and butt scratches you have to offer. She is a calm girl with a nice, medium energy level who enjoys leisurely walks as much as cuddles on the couch. Josie can be a bit nervous around dominant dogs and occasionally displays some reactivity with other pups so she’d do best as your one and only. We are unsure how she is with cats and children. Josie would love to find a relaxed and quiet home with someone who is there often and can give her all the love she deserves.

Her adoption fee has been covered by the generosity of donors and volunteers at the Danbury Animal Control. Upon adoption, she will be vaccinated, microchipped, heartworm tested, and spayed (if the vet approves the procedure due to her age and health). Meet & greets will take place at the Danbury Animal Control.
