    Joey is an 11 year old neutered male Italian Greyhound.  He is super sweet and loves everybody and everything.  He is great with both dogs and cats.

    Joey is being fostered with Seniors Rock, a rescue that focuses on primarily senior dogs within the state of Wisconsin. To learn more or inquire about Joey, please view his bio on petfinder.
