Once you have had a wonderful dog, a life without one, is a life diminished.

Hello World!! My name is Joy and I really live up to my name!!  I am 18 months old and  I am a small hound/shepherd mix (35lbs)! I am a very healthy and extremely happy little lady!!  My foster family tells me daily that I bring a lot of smiles and Joy to their home!!   I love to play with my fur foster siblings!  I am even really good to 6 tiny beagle puppies that are in my foster home!  I love to play with my human foster family as well.  Kids and I get along just great, as long as they are a little older.  Sometimes the loudness of small children intimidates me.  My favorite thing to play with is socks!!!!   The more socks you give me, the happier I am!

I am rock star at going potty in all the right places!  I am also fond of my kennel!  Heck, sometimes, my foster family does not even put me in it!  That is how well behaved I am!

One of my favorite parts of the day is treat time! Give me one, and I will bring you the biggest smile filled with lots of Joy!!

 Can I please be the one who will bring you your daily dose of Joy?

 Joy is current on vaccinations, HW negative, spayed, and micro chipped.
