Joey ~ in the Los Angeles, CA area

Looking for a Home

Good things come in small packages and that's me, your pal Joey. I'm about three years old and weigh 11 pounds. My foster mom is amazed at my smartness. I sit on command and quickly learned to shake hands (paws). I'm 99% house trained, and if you let me know in a firm voice when I mess up I won't do it again. I'm okay with a crate, but I was born to sleep in a nice comfy dog bed. Do you have a little bed for me? Throw me a toy or let me keep you company in front of the computer or the TV and I'm happy. Joey
Joey I went through a rough patch at the shelter and the nice rescue people thought I had kennel cough, until the vet figured out it was really a throat injury. I also had some minor tooth damage that was easily fixed. Now that I'm better I like to play, but I still gasp for air when I get overly excited. I've been going on walks with a harness instead of a collar, but my favorite exercise is running around a securely fenced yard. It's probably best for me to go to a home with no small kids. Older kids are fine. I'm curious about everything and get along with other dogs, and I don't even mind that they're all bigger than me. Cats? Haven't seen one lately.
My fur has a silky texture but I've probably got some Yorkie in my DNA. I've got a lot of love in this little package and I can't wait to deliver it to my forever home. I'm neutered and microchipped with all of my shots and I'm ready to go! My adoption fee is $200.00.
