Joe went to the vet yesterday to find out why he is walking so awkwardly. The vet said he has severe arthritis and is probably closer to 10 than to the 7 we were guessing before. The vet prescribed pain relievers. Joe spent his entire life at the end of a short chain, no doubt causing his joints to deteriorate, until he broke free a few months ago. Now all he needs is his first real home, where he will get his pain meds and a comfortable bed. There has to be a welcoming home out there somewhere for Joe. Please help us find it.
For more information on Joe please contact Billerica Animal Control @ 978-671-0909.
We were able to help fund his surgery and today Cody is recovering in a loving foster home. He is available for adoption through Pittielove Click here to get more information about adopting Cody
