Joey is a very handsome but very sad adult German Shepherd. Poor Joe
was found by the police wandering the street as a stray. Joe is
extremely emaciated and desperately needs some TLC. He has pretty poor
body condition but his teeth are surprisingly in good shape. Joe
definitely seems "off" in his back end- he has little to no muscle mass
in his hips and hind legs, and seems unsteady on them- this could be
signs of hip dysplasia, or just due to neglect.
Joe walks like a dream on the leash- right beside you, like he's happy
to have a leader. Joe initially was very scared and shut down in his
kennel and would avoid being leashed by huddling behind his kuranda
bed. In the past day, he has gotten less shut down but is stressed. He
can show some barrier frustration now, so we'd like to get him out of
here ASAP. Once out, Joe is friendly and seems easy to handle. He likes
to be by your side, though isn't terribly used to a ton of affection.
This dog was just taken into our rescue and will not be available for
adoption for a minimum of one month
