Uncle Joe the retriever mix

Somewhere living among us mere mortals are extraordinary people who willingly take in elderly, innocent creatures. Uncle Joe is ready to meet such an angel. This is his “I’m seriously hungry” face, but Joe’s really not a curmudgeon. He’s an undemanding retriever mix that spent years struggling to survive the outdoor elements, robbed of his ball-chasing youth. Uncle Joe now savors living inside a foster home with four other dogs (no kitties). He’s great with kids and seniors. He never ever needs to be kept in a doggie crate. Treasure each day with the gentle devotion that only an old wise old guy can impart. Adopt Uncle Joe fully vaccinated, microchipped, and more from Find them on Facebook @NewLifeRescue.
