The holidays are a tough time for young Joker.....this adorable and sweet boy was given up by his family the day after Christmas, 2017. He was hoping that he would be in a new home for this Christmas but, no such luck. He has been with us for over a year now, which is tough on a dog that is less than 2 years old, and growing up in a shelter. Joker is a real sweetheart. He loves people so much, and he loves to play, but he does need training. Our trainer, Karissa, has been working wonders with young Joker and he is such a fast learner, but he still needs a home with no young kids simply because he is a bit grabby while playing. A nice yard and some daily exercise would do Joker a world of good and of course, a good family to love him.  He gets along with some dogs that he meets that can keep up with his playing, but needs a cat-free home. Please give our goofy boy Joker a chance in the new year!
