Joe is a 5 year old, 65 lb. neutered male in La Verne, CA.

My cousin passed in January 2021 and Joe was his dog. I am only trying to find a home for Joe.


I love Joe and we have a very close relationship. He likes to "herd" me, that's what I call it, anyway. He will nudge and push me when he wants to tell me something. My cousin let Joe become overweight and I am currently working to alleviate the extra pounds.


He is a very good dog. I have trained him, very easily to my surprise, to walk on a leash and some simple commands. He has become protective of me, by no fault of his own. I just think that's how he will be with anyone who is the dominate figure in his life. He is a large dog and a little intimidating at first, but when he gets to know you and with the right commands he becomes friendly. I have had to take care of him for 2 months and he is very loveable, but he needs space to be active!

Joe is in La Verne, CA.
