Joe's Story

 

After spending over two weeks at the kennel in a city shelter, ARTS found me a foster home with kind people and a soft bed, which has made me very happy. Nobody knows my history and i'm not one to talk, but here’s what my people have been able to figure out about me:

 

 I love to being part of a family and would prefer a home with other dogs. I am currently sharing a house with a big 100+ puppy and a smaller 11-year-old. I prefer the company of the puppy but i'll probably get along with anyone as long as you do slow proper introductions. I have no issues in the house and I learn a routine quickly. I have no problem going into a kennel, but I'll just as happily sleep wherever you want me to (ideally with my people and other dog friends).

 

I can be left alone for hours with my friends without any issue. Light walks on a leash are just fine, I don’t break any land speed records but a nice meander is perfect. I have not met anyone who I don’t like, human or dog. I haven't me a cat but i'm a pretty calm boy, so it might work.

 

I do need a calm sense around me and like most pitties i'm a sensitive soul, so please be gentle with me. When I feel stressed, my teeth chatter a bit; but if you take a moment to make me feel secure again, I relax.

 

I have been to the vet and all is a green light for me. I am taking arthritis medication to help me get going in the morning. The vet called me a ‘charmer’ that sounded good and she gave me treats. In fact, everyone says I’m a charmer! I have simple needs; a soft place to lay down, a calm surrounding and lots of treats. I need a gentle touch and I promise to be gentle back.

Please apply here if I can be your new good boy.
