Joey Must Have:
- People who are home most of the time but but also active adopters willing to continue his training. A single person or couple — no children please.
- Recent/current dog experience
- Rescue experience a plus!
My name is Joyous Joey and I’m a cute little guy who is six years young (or is it old?) and simply adorable. Now I’m not bragging but everyone that meets me says I’m a ‘cutie patootie’. I’m not exactly sure what that means but my foster Mom says I’m ‘adorbs’ and that everything I do is adorable!
Mom says I’m 13 pounds of fun – and so happy that I smile – and wag my tail – all the time (except when I’m lying in your arms and cuddling!) Besides being charming, kind, cuddly, delightful and happy, I’m also obedient, playful and want to please! Sound good? Then please read on!
Mom says that I’m equal parts sweet and shy, a darling little guy who just wants to be around you- in your lap, by your side, next to you in bed, on a car ride. As long as I’m with you, I’m fine. Did I mention that I LOVE the carwash – and drive-thrus? When you’re actually driving, I’m pretty calm and love to look out the closed window. At the drive-thru I sometimes growl at the men inside but listen to Mom and am obedient.
Aside from literally looking like a little teddy bear (seriously, if I say, Tom Holland were a dog, it would be me!), my best quality is that I’m just a great little friend. (And I promise I’ll be the bestest companion to some lucky person or couple!)
While I am shy at first, I’m finding that there are lots of pretty special human beings in this world that I can like and who like me! I’m learning that love and attention are good things! Mom is helping me become more comfortable with new people – and I’m generally better with women than men. That’s because I’m what she says is ‘discerning’ — but a gentle man can probably win me over. Oh! and I’ve discovered that ear scratches and belly rubs are pretty neat! So sign me up for more of them, please!
Mom calls me “Super Glue” because I bonded with her in about two seconds. She says I’m a happy, sweet, and social little love bug and a pretty typical bichon in many ways. So you will not be surprised to know that I like to play, go for walks and participate in all that life has to offer!
Did I mention that I’m housebroken (no typo there) and am also learning commands! Why I already come when I’m called (that’s more than some of my bichon cousins do!) and I’m learning “sit.”
So if you are looking for a darling pup, with lots of promise, are willing to continue my training (I want to become the best little guy that I can be), are active, home most of the time and like to do lots of things, I’m applying to be your new best friend.
So if I sound like a pup you’d like to meet, please complete our adoption application. Mom says to tell you that there’s something incredibly special about me–almost like I know what you’re thinking – and that you couldn’t ask for a better companion.
Snuggles and Cuddles,
Joyous and Jaunty Joey
