A small, black male greyhound, six years old.
Joe is a very jolly, happy dog who really doesn’t act his age – in his mind, he’s a lot younger! He will happily fit into pretty much any home, with children, other dogs, or on his own.
He doesn’t seem to be any kind of ‘oil painting’ right now, but blacks don’t show to their best advantage in their thicker kennel coats. Once they’ve been in a home for a while, they usually develop a sleek, shiny ‘velvety’ coat that gleams like no other colour.
Please don’t be put off by his greying face – many dogs do go grey early but it is no indication of health problems.
UPDATE October 2012: Joe has now been rehomed and is no longer available.
