Joey may be unique among other dogs, but that hasn’t dampened his zest for life.
Despite being a three-month-old Chihuahua without front paws, Joey strives to do everything his canine siblings can do.
According to Christen Peralta, the founder of Vintage Pet Rescue, Joey is one of the happiest dogs she has ever encountered.
Despite his physical challenges, he runs, jumps, plays, and embraces life with joy, showing love for cuddles.
After expending his energy, Joey finds comfort in taking long naps, often snuggling up with his beloved stuffed animals, particularly his favorite, Lamb Chop.
Originally in the care of the Humane Society, Joey was later taken in by Vintage Pet Rescue, an organization specializing in older and special-needs dogs.
Christen’s primary goal is to ensure Joey’s complete comfort, making him feel no different from other dogs and enabling him to fully enjoy life.
Witnessing his energetic bursts, playful runs, and spirited stair-climbing, Christen is delighted to see Joey thriving.
Once Joey undergoes neutering and adjusts to using a wheelchair, he will be ready for adoption.
Peralta anticipates receiving numerous adoption inquiries for Joey, given his infectious zest for life and unwavering positivity. Finding a loving family for him should be a rewarding endeavor.
