The staff of the Niagara County SPCA with the help of our friends at WIVB are asking for the public’s help to find him a forever home.

Joey is very mellow and lovable.

“He has just charmed all of our staff and volunteers here at the Niagara County SPCA and we don’t know why he’s passed up all the time in the kennels, but we want to change that,” said Kimberly LaRussa Niagara County SPCA.

LaRussa says the pit bull stigma might have something to do with why it’s taken so long for him to find a home.

“There is a stigma with pit bulls, we don’t understand why, because they’re actually the most loving out of any dog,” she said. “We don’t like breed discrimination, because every dog is different and Joey, is just as loving as any dog in the world. So, we just really hope that the community can see that.

He does have a few special needs for his potential new home. Joey looks like a great companion, maybe for someone with an active lifestyle that wants a best friend.
