Cotton Eye Joe, who answers to Joey, is a happy, energetic and play boy who was rescued from a puppy mill after he was deemed as not able to sell due to a genetic deformity in his eyes. Joey’s mother passed down her cataracts and genetic eye issue that needs long term care and attention and is expected to progress to glaucoma and permanent blindness at a young age or even require the removal of one or both eyes (confirmed by a veterinary ophthalmologist).
Joey does not let his disability get him down. He runs, plays, loves toys and gets into mischief like any other puppy and just lives his life at full speed, but he does bump into things in the house and yard. He adores other dogs and needs a home with a very playful and tolerant dog companion who will happily play with him and help him as his vision declines.
Joey does need quite a bit of training and has frequent pee accidents in his crate and in the house. His fosters are working with him in the meantime until he finds his forever home but he will need patient and dedicated adopters to help him continue to learn.
Joey is a very sweet and active puppy and he is looking for his perfect match to love and care for him forever!
Joey is sweet, loving, and VERY playful! He will require basic obedience training. He is just a puppy and is still working on his crate training and house breaking.*
*All dogs will go through a transition period after finding a new home and may need a “refresher course” in house-breaking.
