As we continue to celebrate Adopt-A-Dog-Month, we bring you another wonderful “Happy Tail,” today we share an update about Joanie.
Joanie, an adorable Rottweiler dog, was adopted from the Animal Rescue League of Boston on April 28, 2012 at age 8. She was a part of a law enforcement case and her foster parent, Mary, fell in love with this sweet pup and ended up adopting her.
Here’s what Joanie’s mom had to say about her.
“She is doing great, and everyone who meets her loves her. Its hilarious. I’ll be sitting outside in any public place, and people passing by will see her from the back and edge away a little. She is pretty big, after all. But as soon as they see her face, every single person just has to pet her! I watch people’s faces, and I can always see the moment when they realize how cute an old Rottie can be. And once they start petting her, and she gives them her patented Joanie look that tells them they are her new favorite person in the world, they forget about being in a hurry and pet her as long as they can. Our dogsitter even said her next dog will be an old Rottie, and the groomers gushed about her last weekend.
All the shelter dogs I have had have been wonderful, and whenever anyone tells me they are thinking of getting a dog, I recommend an adult shelter dog. They really are the best!” – Mary P.
Mary, thanks for sharing Joanie’s “Happy Tail” with us. We love that you adopted an adult dog! May you have many more happy years together.
