Plenty of Pets
Joey is a one-year-old German shepherd-collie mix who weighs 58 pounds.
He’s a little nervous when he first meets people, but warms up fast.
He loves to play with toys and go for walks, but needs more leash training. He gets along with other dogs and tolerates cats in the house, but will chase them when outdoors.
Joey is house trained and doesn’t mind being home alone for a while. He’s a high energy dog so he needs to be with someone who likes to get out.
He’s neutered, vaccinated, treated for parasites and microchipped, and he comes with 30 days of free pet insurance, courtesy of 24Pet Watch. His adoption fee is $350.
There are a few places closed today. This includes Colchester Christian Academy, École acadienne de Truro, and the Truro campus of the NSCC.
