In shelter Dog

Salt Lake City, UT, 84117
Pet name:
Hi there! My name is Josie! I LOVE to be pet (Ill do anything for a belly rub) I enjoy relaxing on my dog bed and watching a movie with you, snuggling, and being your mini shadow, following you everywhere and anywhere. I enjoy playing with squeaky toys, and playing hide and go seek. I am crate and potty trained. 

I like to go for short, daily walks. I do well with other small dogs and cats, but Id be just fine being the only pet in the home. I have a very spunky, larger than life personality.

I am currently working on weight loss to each my ideal weight of 8#. My potential adopter will need to continue working with me to keep me on the path to a healthy body weight. Right now I eat a prescription weight management diet called w/d. 

I do have grade luxating patellas on both knees, meaning my knee caps do move out of place. They are currently being medically managed with a medication called Rimadyl (a doggy safe pain medication) and a joint supplement. I recently had a dental cleaning with 14 extractions, a full senior blood panel and a heartworm test. 

I will require regular grooming as my hair does grow long around my face and paws (I will also need to have my anal glands expressed by a vet as I have had a history of anal gland abscesses.) 

I cant wait to find my FUREVER home!

This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
