About Joy

Adoption Fee: $275.00
Boxer / Pit Bull
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Female

'd like to introduce myself. My name is Joy, which means 'delight and great happiness'. My foster dad named me Joy because I am indeed delighted to be given a chance to live in a loving home where my foster family is teaching me that being a dog can be a wonderful thing! You see, I was found living in the woods and I had been there for a long, long time. I didn't always find food to eat, so I was really skinny and I was sick too. I had some really bad worms that had invaded my heart because I wasn't given the vet care that all dogs need, so I had to get lots of medicine to make me better. Now I am all healthy, and ready for my next joyous adventure - a family of my very own! So let me tell you more about me. I LOVE people - big people, little people, I just love everyone and most especially people who will give me the love and attention that I have learned is the best part of being a foster dog. And I love hanging out with other dogs and playing in the yard. I also love to go on walks with my humans and my doggie friends. I get to see all sorts of great places and smell all sorts of great smells that don't seem so scary when my human is on the other end of my leash. Would you like to be Joy's Forever Family? If you can offer her walks and good healthy meals, and lots and lots of love, then please consider making Joy's dream come true and join her on her forever joyous adventure. Joy is a boxer/terrier mix and weighs about 50 lb. She is house- and crate-trained, and current on all vaccines. Joy is being fostered in Smithfield VA and you can apply to adopt her at
