From the beginning, Joey was unique, but he never let it stop him. The Vintage Pet Rescue is home to a 3-month-old Chihuahua eager to imitate his foster siblings and sisters. Even though Joey is unique in that he lacks front legs, he outpaces the other canines by a wide margin.
Kristen Peralta, the founder of Vintage Pet Rescue, said in an interview, “Joey is one of the happiest dogs we’ve ever met.”
He has no idea he’s different, and he loves playing with toys, wrestling with his friends, going to the splash pad, and receiving hugs. The puppy never does anything halfway, whether he’s playing or napping. When sleepy, he seeks the cosiest corner in the home and falls asleep among his stuffed animal collection. He likes to sleep with a Lamb Chop toy the same size as him.
Peralta added, “He’s still a puppy, so he plays hard and then sleeps hard.”
Joey enjoys sleeping for lengthy periods with his large stuffed animals. He is obsessed with his toys. Joey was donated to the CT Humane Society before coming to Vintage Pet Rescue. Vintage Pet Rescue accepts elderly canines as well as pets with special needs. The creator of Vintage Pet Rescue’s primary objective after catching the dog is to make him feel comfortable and at peace.
She further adds, “he can hop on the couch, hop on the stairs, and get pretty much wherever he wants to go. I’m amazed at how well he gets around.”
Joey will be ready for adoption after being neutered and fitted with a customer wheelchair at Eddie’s Wheels for Pets. The creator of the club believes that, despite his unusual appearance, the puppy’s fun-loving, life-of-the-party demeanor will quickly find him a loving home.
In the end, she remarked, “We know that there will be a lot of people who want to work with him. But it’s just Joey!”
Joey may have been born differently, but he hasn’t allowed that to stop him from moving forward.
The three-month-old Chihuahua is eager to imitate his foster siblings and parents at Vintage Pet Rescue. And despite lacking front legs, he outruns the other dogs by a wide margin.
“Joey is one of the happiest dogs we have ever met,” Vintage Pet Rescue CEO Kristen Peralta told The Dodo.
“He doesn’t know that he’s different, and he absolutely loves playing with toys, wrestling with the other dogs, enjoying his splash pad and getting cuddles.”
Joey is a complete perfectionist, whether he is playing or sleeping. The puppy finds the cosiest spot in the home and curls up in his stuffed animal collection after using up all of his energy. He likes falling asleep with a Lamb Chop toy that is the perfect size for him.
“He’s still very much a puppy, so he will play hard, and then he naps hard,” Peralta said. “Joey loves to cuddle up with his big stuffed animals and take a long nap … He loves his toys!”
Before being taken in by Vintage Pet Rescue, which specializes in elderly and special needs dogs, Joey was turned to the CT Humane Society. The fundamental objective of Peralta is to guarantee Joey’s constant safety and comfort. If she manages to capture him, that is.
“Joey can hop upstairs, hop up on the couch and pretty much get wherever he wants to go,” Peralta said. “It’s really incredible to see him get around so well. Nothing stops him.”
Joey will be ready for adoption when he is neutered and fitted with a personalized wheelchair at Eddie’s Wheels for Pets. Despite his unusual appearance, Peralta believes that Joey’s effervescent, life-of-the-party personality will swiftly earn him a loving home.
“We know we will have hundreds of applications for him,” Peralta said. “But there’s only one Joey!”
Joey may have had a different birth. That didn’t cause him to lose momentum. The 3-month-old Chihuahua at Vintage Pet Rescue aspires to accomplish whatever his siblings and parents do. Despite without front legs, he still chases the other dogs.
He is among the happiest canines we have ever encountered.
“Kristen Peralta, who is the founder of Vintage Pet Rescue,” told The Dodo. “He doesn’t know that he’s different, and he loves playing with toys, wrestling with the other dogs, enjoying his splash pad, and getting cuddles.”
When he’s playing or sleeping, he never does anything halfway. When the pup has exhausted all his energy, he finds a comfy spot in the home and goes asleep among his animal collection. He mostly likes to relax with a Lamb Chop toy just his size.
“He’s a pup, he will play, and he naps,” told Peralta. “He embraces his animals and takes a long nap … He loves his toys!”
He was taken in by Vintage Pet Rescue, specialising in special needs canines, after being transferred to the CT Humane Society. Peralta’s mission is to ensure that he is always comfortable and safe.
According to Peralta, Joey can climb upstairs, go on the bed, and roam anywhere he wants. “It’s unthinkable to see him become around so well. No one stops him.”
After Joey is desexed and equipped for a wheelchair at Eddie’s Wheels for Pets, he will be available for adoption. Now Joey looks different. Peralta anticipates that his infectious, life-of-the-party attitude will quickly win him a loving family.
“We received 100 applications for Joey,” Peralta said.
“But there’s only one Joey!”
