Joey is really a sweet dog who is very puppy like. He enjoys playing in mud puddles and will always cheer you up by his eagerness to see you each and every time you interact with him. Its like he hasnt seen you for weeks when it could be as little as an hour but he will greet you the same like a long lost friend. Joey loves his walks and is also crate trained. If you take the time to work with him, you wont be disappointed.
HERE IS JOEY'S STORY:
Joey is a four year old cocker spaniel in need of a new home. He is a special guy who loves to have fun, and will chase balls all day long if given the opportunity. Joey came to our shelter in late 2010 and found it hard to live here amongst all the other dogs. He needs and desires a home of his own.. love and a compassionate person or couple to call his own.. He is truly great one on one.. But will not do well with young children, as he wants you all to himself.
He loves to be groomed, go for car rides and keep busy having fun! Joey can be a tad protective of his environment but we believe that this is only because he has to share it with so many other animals.
Joey wants to be a dog! Run, play and roll around in the mud from time to time. He will need an understanding person to realize that there is some things he does not like.. such as touching his food.. his personality is awesome with most.. and cautious with others.
Joey original family left him home most of the day. Did not socialize him at all nor take him for walks or car rides. He was locked in his crate for more than 10 hours per day..
