Are you a muscle car enthusiast? Do you love the thought of power in a sleek, streamlined package? Now imagine powerful muscles encased in a warm, loving, devoted body of a 6 year old Weimaraner/Pit Bull mix who wants nothing but love, pets, belly rubs, and attention. That is our boy Joe, a 68 pound package of tan, velvety goodness with golden eyes that will melt your soul. He is no average Joe.

Joe isn't just muscle though, this dude has some serious brain power; he is housebroken, knows the commands for sit, down, paw, and wait, and appears to be a fast learner. He has already made friends with the resident Chihuahua and, every now and then, they’ll play chase in the backyard which Joe clearly loves.  The Chihuahua also likes the fact the Joe can just chill with him on the deck as they lie around catching the rays on a sunny day.  Joe does well with most dogs as long as there are slow introductions. In-your-face puppies are not his favorite playmates.
 
Speaking of dreaming, Joe likes to fold his entire body into a small dog bed and sleep there throughout the night. During the day, he will nap by his foster mom while she works in her office.  Joe also likes to relax in his crate, but he is so well behaved that he doesn't need one.
 
When it comes to food, our boy Joe is a hearty eater and can be caught sneaking the Chihuahua's leftovers. Due to some allergies, Joe is on a grain-free, catfish diet. He is also getting an allergy shot once a month to help his allergies.

As we stated in the beginning, Joe is a sleek powerhouse who can put on some serious speed as he races in the backyard, yet is able to stop on a dime if he hears his name. He also loves to play fetch and will on occasion drop it or at least loosen his grip so you can take it to throw again.
 
This dear boy LOVES his people and wants to be with them as often and as close as possible. If Joe wants you to continue petting him, he knows how to use his considerable muscle to force your hand back on his head.  

Are you in the market for brains and brawn? If so, then Joe is your boy. Fill out an application now and make plan to cruise on over to the next adoption event for a little "test drive.” See you soon!

Please check our events page at http://www.SecondCityCanineRescue.org to find where this dog may be shown this weekend. If you are interested in adopting this dog, you must send an application or email us at adoptions@sccrescue.org prior to a Saturday Adoption Event so we know you plan on attending. If we do not receive any communication from you, the dog may be adopted out at our event prior to 12 pm if the perfect home comes along. 🙂 

The breed or breed mix listed for each dog is simply a guess. The profile software program requires that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our dogs. However, visual breed identification is unreliable. We encourage you to select your new companion by considering each dog’s individual personality and pet qualities instead of relying on a breed label that is only a guess. Dogs are individuals.

Please understand, we only adopt our animals out near Chicagoland... we are sorry but we cannot accept any out of state applications. We look forward to speaking with you!
