Meet Joey: Adoption time is running short for mellow one-year-old pittie

UPDATE: It saddens me to report that Joey was euthanized by the San Bernardino City Shelter. Rest in peace Joey. I am sorry we couldn't save you.

Everyone loves Joey; this fawn and white, one-year-old pit bull mix is just so mellow, he could charm the mischief out of a child. Of course, shouldn't every youngster have a dog and learn how to be compassionate and kind? What a difference that would make.

Unfortunately, Joey has been at the San Bernardino City Shelter where he was picked up as a stray since June 30; his exit date was June 8. This dog could be euthanized at anytime; please act quickly and save this boy's life.

A volunteer who has met Joey writes:

"Cari NO Bsl Ennis - When I first met Joey, he was in isolation. Really impressed with how calm he appeared. Very happy to see they moved him to a regular kennel. You can just tell he is a wonderful boy!"
