Hi! My name is Joy.

Another shelter was caring for me before I came to Animal Humane Society to find a home.

People describe me as shy. Shy dogs are very loving but may need a little time to acclimate to their new environment. A quieter, low-key home would allow me the opportunity to get used to new things at my own pace.

People also describe me as affectionate. Affectionate dogs make cuddly, lovable pets that like to give kisses and snuggle. We can also be a little bit shy or bashful as we adapt to a new environment, a process that may be easier in homes that have moderate activity.

I will do best in a home without children under 8 years of age.

I was very shy when I arrived at the shelter, so I participated in a special adoption preparation program for Wallflowers that helped me adjust to a bustling shelter environment. I will do best in a quiet, low-stress home environment and may need some extra patience and time to get used to a new home.
