Meet Jo!


Female, 7 year old, Sharpei Mix

Found on Ocean Blvd with her puppy


Spayed, Microchipped, Vaccinated

Its safe to say that Jo needed PAWS, and PAWS needed Jo.

The most tender dog you will ever meet, Jo came to PAWS in need of emergency medical treatment we weren’t sure she could survive. After fighting through a life saving surgery, Jo has a new lease on living and you can see it on her face.

Beaming every time she sees you, it’s impossible to spend time with Jo and not know instantly that you are better off for it. She has limited mobility, but no dog will saunter to you with as much enthusiasm. She struggles to hear you from a distance, but rewards you when you get her attention with a heart-melting grin. Jo embraces her limitations, converts them to her strengths, and hasn’t let any of her trials dampen her love for life, or love for people.

Jo will teach you to treasure life, to never let an obstacle keep you down, and to find joy in every moment. Jo is ready to find the forever home she was destined to join; she’s ready for you to show her the second-chance-happiness she fought so hard for.
