Joy came to us from Texas and we all know that everything is bigger in Texas and and so is her personality.
- Joy is a happy but exciteable dog. - She is super sweet and loves to cuddle (all the time if you let her). - Joy gets along well with people but due to her energy level must be in a home with children 6 and up - She is house and crate trained. - Joy does not do well in the car. She gets very excited on car rides as other cars go by (she is trying to chase them).
- Joy loves going on walks and knows her basic commands. - Joy can get along with other dogs but will push herself onto other dogs with dominant gestures which can cause problems if uncontrolled. Unless you are an experienced bully owner we therefore recommend that she is the only dog in the family.
No dog parks, no cats, no small dogs, no children younger than 6 years.
Joy has a lot of energy and her three legs do not slow her down. There are no restrictions on what home she should be in. You will need to be able to provide daily exercise for her to keep her energy under control. She can go up and down steps without problems. Joy is all muscle and will jump in the car all by herself. You will be amazed!
We would love to see Joy go into a home with a fenced in yard (4' minimum height). She loves laying outside in the sun during the day.
Joy is in good health otherwise.
