Joker is: Friendly, Eager to please, Energetic, Intelligent, Treat motivated, Affectionate. Giving a dog a name when they first arrive at the shelter, before getting to know them, can be hit or miss. But as you’ll quickly find out when you meet him, this guy’s handle fits just right. Joker is a friendly and energetic young dog, full of puppy-like energy and love. He’s a favorite of everyone he knows, from shelter employees and volunteers to people who live in the neighborhood. Joker enjoys going for regular jogs with his good friend Jay, a WARL volunteer who comes by most days to spend time with him, greeting and spreading cheer among the neighbors they’ve befriended. Joker is affectionate, too, and enjoys snacks and snuggles as much as he does exercise and play. Smart and eager to please, Joker knows how to sit and is getting better walking on a leash – he does especially well when wearing a harness. He’s very attentive and a quick study, and is looking for someone to teach him new tricks and continue to work with him in his training. Since he’s so enthusiastic, strong, and full of energy, he needs practice and patience. Joker and would enjoy a home with a yard where he can run and play – and relax. He is best suited for a place without small children and without other dogs or cats
