We adopted Joey from ARF almost two years ago. We think it’s fate because we went there on a whim, “just to look around.” Upon meeting Joey we had an instant connection and knew we had to bring him home. Everyone who meets Joey says he is more like a human than a dog! He loves to give hugs and fit his whole 70lb body onto any open laps. He is incredibly goofing and playful, anything can be a toy and he’s always making his little human brother laugh!

He’s also an extremely gentle cuddle bug! We are so thankful for Joey!
