Permanent Shelter Dog Joey arrived at Arundawn from a pound in the North on the 7th of February 2016. He is 3 years old.
Joey and his siblings were born into ‘rescue’ in Scotland! After a catastrophic start to their lives they were supposedly hand reared, separated, placed into foster homes, rehomed and in Joey’s case ended up in a pound kennels in the north of England not once, but twice all before he was 8 months old.
Sadly, by this time two of his siblings had already lost their lives as a result of the damage caused during their early months.
Joey was no exception and had also suffered badly. He had no manners, no social skills and was on the cusp of going ‘badly wrong’. We realised he would be a long-term project.
Slowly but surely Joey has turned many corners in his young life. He still spends time in his kennel but joins the pack every single evening where he is making firm friends and learning to relax in company. He remains unsure of new situations and finds trusting hard but those who met him in the early days after his arrival are constantly rewarded by the loving, loyal and delightful dog that he has become.
Joey will remain a permanent resident of Arundawn and we know he is going to continue with his progress.
