May I introduce Joey who will be 2 in May. He is a GSD cross Mali. Currently entire but he is vaccinated and microchipped. Joey was taken in by his current owner as he was due to be euthanised. She has worked very hard with him but he needs someone with more time and he is causing problems in the home. His owner has carers coming into the home for her son and he is very noisy and off putting despite being crated when they come in and neighbours have been complaining so he must be moved on to prevent eviction!
On first meeting Joey he comes across as being very aggressive and reactive, but he does calm down and once he knows people he is absolutely fine. Our volunteer met him outside of the home and he reacted however after about 10 minutes of walking, he was able to walk with Joey and his mum and was much calmer.
No young children for obvious reasons, but Joey is fine with other dogs once introduced correctly. A definite no to cats. This lad just need a home experienced with the breed to continue the work his current owner has put in, and in our volunteer’s words, “I think with the right adopter he will become a lovely dog.”
Sadly Joey’s owner decided to put him to sleep without letting us know. RIP Joey.
