Joey "Bow Legs" - 5 years old (Fostered in Mathews, NC)


I had the pleasure of breaking this guy out of jail today. He could use a few cheeseburgers, but whoever adopts this boy will not be disappointed at all. Rides in the car so awesome & loves to give kisses. Cute as a button to boot.

11/1/18: Hello. My name is Joey “Bow Legs”. That's what my Foster Mom calls me because of my cute bowed legs. Anybody know what "cute bow legs" means please let me know. She also calls me Joey Long Shanks sometimes because I am so tall. I got that one!
I've been with FM and my foster sibs for two weeks and I'm picking up weight and doing pretty well. I'm still very quiet and polite. It may be because I'm new and not ready to show my true colors, but FM thinks I'm probably less crazy than most Boxers anyway. I do like to play in the yard with Poppy. She's the foster sister and she's very BoxerCrazy.
I love toys and try to play, but it's only fun if there is someone to tug and throw. If FM isn't home I just rest. I'm really good in the crate or out of the crate. I do get on the furniture, but gently. FM says I'm a terrific leash walker. She is so happy because her two "monsters" are awful on leash and pull her arms out of the sockets when they see cats or squirrels. I go alert when I see them, but I don't run after them (yet) and if FM says "leave it" I always do just leave it. FM says I have great "table" manners. I eat slowly without a fuss!
I'm told I have a really sweet face with a darling underbite that mostly shows when I get a treat...because I smile!
I am looking for someone to love me, cuddle me, play games with me, walk me, feed me every day and make sure I am safe and adored forever. I don't think that's much to ask , do you?
If you think I'm cute (there's that word again...everyone says it along with he's so big and cute) and want to love me forever, please get on my list. I would love to meet you!

11/8/18: What a sweet loving boy he is with great manners! He found the 3 most important things immediately: food bowls, toys, and the bed. Then made sure he gave Gracie and me a few kisses to say thanks for sharing! Such a gentleman. Great house manners. Perfect leash manners. Playful but not crazy. Crate friendly. Very laid back.
