#10262 Joy to the World

Medium-size, Male, Adult Shepherd,

Hi! My name is Joy to the World and I’m part of the Holiday Music transport.

I’m guessed to be a Shepherd mix and estimated to be about 2 years old. I’m a sweet boy and I currently weigh about 38 lbs. 
I’m settling in to my foster home but here are a few thing my foster knows about me so far!

Click here to see me in action!

- Quiet in my crate
- I’m a laid back kinda guy and love to be petted!
- I can be a little cautious in new situations until I settle in, then my happy personality comes out!
- I walk nicely on-leash and love the outdoors!
- I’m ok around other dogs as long as they give me space. I’m currently coexisting with another dog in my foster home but keep to myself.
- Housebroken

This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. The disease was treated while in foster care. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable.

Joy to the World is up-to-date on his vaccinations and has been neutered. He is best in a home without small children. Joy to the World is currently being fostered in Mount Airy, MD.

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
