Description: 
Joey is a lovable, affectionate 2-year-old male. He is energetic and puppy-like. He thrives on human attention, is calmed when petted, and is happiest when sitting in someone’s lap. Early in life, Joey’s right hip was broken. As a result, his right leg is slightly shorter than his left. He doesn’t seem affected by this in the least; he runs, walks, and jumps without hesitation. One positive result of this is that he doesn’t jump up on people or up onto taller furniture, as it is hard for him to stand on one foot and propel himself with that foot. While Joey is usually ravenously hungry, his weight will need to be monitored so his hips will be able to support his weight as he gets older. Joey is completely housetrained. We are working on training him to walk on a leash, as well as to sit on command. He seems to understand the word “no”, but being young, doesn’t hold on to that concept for long! He enjoys chewing socks, shoes, towels, paper, etc. that he finds in his reach so will need to be monitored and have plenty of safe things available for him to chew on.
