  • From Joey's momma: Joey was surrendered to BCAS in March of 2017, at 4 years of age, with his brother. His family lost their home and had to move in with relatives. They would only allow them to bring one dog so they took their white female senior dog. I received a message from the mom on FB asking if Pitties and Purrs would pull them from the shelter. She was so distraught giving them up and would like to know if they received a good home. I emailed the shelter and they said that Diesel, Joey’s brother had already been adopted that day. The next morning I sent someone down after Joey (his real name was Cujo), shelter changed it to Sumo. When I let his mom know that we had him in boarding, we had no fosters at that time, she was very thankful. She said she always called him Joey and asked if we would keep his name. That didn’t seem like an unfair request. That Friday I went to meet him, fell in love, and brought him home as one of my foster dogs. He needed some teeth removed, a chronic ear infection and an scrotal ablation…also had to get used to being crated, but it all worked out. My senior dog, Lily Bugs bossed him around and he allowed it, although he was much bigger, I always wondered if she reminded him of his senior family dog. After a while it was obvious that Joey was home. I had just lost my boy, Tiger, and Lily agreed that we should open our home to a big boy who had recently lost his. As much as I loved Joey, Lily Bugs was always top dog. I also had several foster dogs. After losing Lily in 2020 and taking a break from fostering, Joey and I became inseparable. I promised he would forever be the number one pup. Joey will be 9 in March. He is so scared of loud noises, thunder and lightning, fireworks, and even heavy rain. Although I give him an anti anxiety drug, he shakes, and whines, and has to sit on my lap. It’s so sad to see. I know what tiggers these episodes, and try to be home with him, during bad storms or holidays that fireworks are popular. But after 5 years, he is beyond spoiled and loved so very much. He loves treats, snuggling, sleeping under the covers and all his stuffed toys. His favorite day of the month is when his BARK BOX arrives, and he can get his new toy out of the box. I love my big baby boy, and I can’t imagine life without him.
