Joe

Okay, so Joe isn’t actually a giant breed but his beautiful, fluffy coat makes him look like a rather large (and adorable!) bear! He was in a sorry state when he was rescued by RSPCA officers alongside 20 other husky type dogs; and was filthy, matted and had never had a bath or a brush.

Now weighing in at 33kg and a whole lot of floof, the six-year-old Alaskan Malamute is a big boy with a big heart. He was very bewildered, shut down and sad when he was rescued; staff had to carry him from the van to his kennel because he had no idea how to walk on a collar or lead. He needed lots of time, patience and positive introductions to help him settle into life in the big wide world.

Joe has had a tough start so he needs a patient owner who can help him slowly adapt to life in a home, as we don’t believe he’s ever lived in one. A ‘hands off’ home will suit him best, living with adults only and free of other pets, with a sizable and secure garden.
