Meet Joey! We believe that Joey is a Golden/Yellow lab mix and approximately 13 weeks old. Joey ended up with animal control in a small town in western MN, and was scheduled to be put down last Thursday. They turned to RAGOM and of course we agreed to help find this little fella a forever home.
Joey is a very friendly little dog. He is a happy active puppy, but will settle down nicely and melt into your arms. He is very good with other dogs, encountered a cat, and was only curious. Joey tries to run with the big boys but still cannot quite keep up.
Joey had a wellness exam tonight and appears in perfect health. He was very well behaved during his exam and was a hit with the staff at the clinic.
Due to Joey’s age, we think that he will adapt well to nearly any home environment.
More to come as we get to know this little guy better.
If you would like to meet little Joey please contact Placement@ragom.org.
Joey was adopted this past weekend by his forever family. He will have two dog sisters, a large fenced yard in which to play, and two great parents ready to spoil him rotten.
Joey is now known as Bond. Here are several pictures of Bond with his new family.

Visiting is exhausting!
We adopted Bond (his name was Joey) last November. The picture above (from January 20th) was taken while we were visiting my daughter in Omaha. Bond, having spent the day entertaining our two dogs (Fletcher, 10 year old Golden/lab, and Evie, a 4 year old labradoodle), my daughter's pug, and my three year old granddaughter, was exhausted.
Bond (yes, we really have formed a bond) is the most even tempered, clever, go-along-get-along dog I have ever known. At nine months, he has now moved to level two obedience training.
His other name is Resdog. He was initially rescued from a reservation on the border of MN, and clearly acquired a love for the outdoor life. He will spend hours playing with his pack mates, or if they go in, entertaining himself in our backyard. Bond is happy simply sitting in the snow, the wind whipping through his fur, king of his domain.
He goes to Dog Day Getaway two mornings a week, and apparently is part of a very playful crew that chooses to spend their time playing outside.
I am so thankful Ragom rescued him, as he was due to be destroyed. Because he has such a good nose, and is such a quick learner, my husband and I are looking into rescue dog training for ourselves and Bond.
