Joey – staying at Dhana Metta Forever.

Joey is a 11 year old neutered Border Collie Cross.  He was surrendered to a Fraser Valley vet clinic and landed himself here at Dhana Metta.

Joey and his new packHe has met all the large dogs here, and was non-reactive, except when Taggart decided to do his usual invasive greeting. Joey was very tolerant of Taggart, but courteously told him where to go. Joey is amazing with the small dogs and with the cat….he does however want to chase the bunnies.

Jackson, CLover and JoeyJoey is a nice old dog, mellow while walking on leash.  Knows all his commands – sit, stay, lie down, come and even shake a paw.  Joey’s eye contact with people is stellar. He would love to find a great home to live out the rest of his life with.  He would prefer a home without small children.

Joey has bilateral cruciate tears but is not currently in need of surgery. He visited the Canada West Veterinary Specialists in Vancouver a couple of weeks ago. His cruciate tears are so old, that Joey has learned to manage very well. Clinically he is doing fine, he is not often stiff when getting up, he goes for long walks easily. He should not however go for long runs, hikes, frisbee and ball chasing.

Joey sure could use a foster home until a forever home is found. Joey is best suited to country life, free to go in and out as he pleases. Acreage or large fenced area would be perfect for him. If you can open your heart and home to this awesome senior dog, please email us at

As always we request an adoption/foster application and home visit.

Joey’s adoption fee is by donation. Thank you!
