Joey came from the Athens, AL animal shelter where he was given up by his owner. He is somewhat shy and will take a little time to warm up to his humans. Once he does, he’s a lap dog wanting to be in your lap every time you sit down. He will follow you from room to room helping you in whatever you do.
Joey is not really a barker but he’ll join in if the other fosters start but doesn’t instigate the barking.
Joey is housebroken to a doggie door but with a little patience he will catch on to going to the door he’s doing so well. At first he didn’t know how to use the doggie door but once he caught on he was using it like a champ.
Joey likes to sleep on the couch with the other fosters at night but I’m sure would love to be in bed with you.
You couldn’t ask for a better new family member than Joey, with love and patience he’ll be the best buddy you’ve ever had. Please consider this wonderful boy, you won’t be sorry.

=============== Information for All Dogs/Adopters ==============
If you have questions about this dog, please feel free to contact the foster home at the email address listed above. They have the most up-to-date information concerning the dog and would be happy to answer any questions about the animal.
We welcome out of state and Canadian adoptions, but we will not ship any dog via cargo. You will have to make arrangements to pick up the dog or for them to go by ground transport. If you choose transporting by either volunteers through our organization or by paid transporter, there will be an additional $45 fee added for the required Health Certificate.
We will not adopt into the state of CT, RI, NH, ME or MA due to strict laws regarding importation of dogs into those states. If you have an issue with this, you need to take this up with your legislatures.
To understand the adoption process through AADR, please review the Adoption Information on our home page. Transportation options are outlined on that page in Step 3.
Please don't let the distance stand in your way of finding your newest best friend. We have volunteers that will help your "new friend" get up and down the East Coast. We just can't get them from one Coast to the other but some day we hope to have enough volunteers to do that as well. For now, please look for dogs on your coast.
