Back in the beginning of the year, we added a new employee to our roster, but he’s definitely like no employee The Jefferson has ever seen.
Our new Executive Canine Officer (ECO) has quickly found his place at The Jefferson after a few short months of coming to us via PAW Rescue, an organization based in Maryland that helps find homes for abandoned dogs and cats.
You can read all about Monti’s story on our website and learn about some of the pet friendly amenities we offer to our four legged guests at The Jefferson.
While Monti may have been super lucky in landing at The Jefferson, he still has lots of friends that need homes so we’ll introduce you to some of them on the blog and hope that you or someone you know might find your next ECO!
This week, we’d like for you to get to know Joey!
Joey is an American Bulldog mix who is one year old and 50 lbs of pure love. He began his year as a leftover Christmas stray at a local shelter. He does well with kids, adults and dogs and is quite affectionate. This guy is in need of a lot of exercise so walks and romps in a safely fenced yard would be right up his alley. He's young and energetic but really sweet. PAW thought he deserved a chance and we know some lucky adopter out there will agree.
He had a totally torn cruciate ligament on his left rear leg and weakness in right rear so he recently had TPLO surgery to repair them. His recovery is 6 to 8 weeks with limited movement allowed (strict cage rest) and after he'll need rehabbing.
To meet Joey, email PAW Resuce at firstname.lastname@example.org or see him at a weekend adoption event soon.
