Zack and Jim’s Waco 100’s Pet of the Week is Joe
Joe is not your regular Joe. Unlike his name, he’s unique in so many ways. But Joe’s a reserved guy, and he doesn’t like to brag, but he’s been voted the most well-mannered dog at the shelter by the volunteers. Even so, he’s not going to let you in on who he is right away. He’ll make you work for it, and he’s definitely worth the effort.
It’s obvious Joe is handsome, and a perfect medium size. And he will tell you he likes to explore. This golden boy also enjoys observing and taking in the world around him, where he may be working on a plan on how to achieve world peace. He’s accommodating, though it’s clear he has a mind of his own. He has the intelligence and uses it frequently. But he’ll do as you ask because he is cooperative. His only request is that you listen to him on occasion.
Joe is a quiet dog. He doesn’t bark or jump, and he’s not one to do backflips in his kennel to get people to notice him. He’s waiting for you to notice him. And once you do, you won’t be able to look away. You’ll want to take him home and make him a part of your family.
It’s a puzzle how such a fantastic dog is still at the shelter, much less urgent.
Joe is a 2-year-old, male, shepherd/lab mix. He weighs 56lbs, and he’s already neutered. Joe has been waiting for his forever home since 3/1/19, and he is currently #6 on the urgent list.
