Joy is one of the 37 dogs that came from the auction on August 6, 2016.

RAGOM's mission was simple.

Get them out. Bring them home.

We brought Joy home that weekend. She is very happy and mostly healthy. She had some tummy bugs. With a round of medication, she is feeling much better and is growing like a weed. She is up to 18 pounds and had her spay surgery on Tuesday August 23, 2016.

We have the pleasure of fostering Baby Joy and her sister Baby Ruth. They play nicely together most of the time. Joy can be a bit bossy and tells her sister what to do all the time. She is definitely the dominant one of the two. My guess is she was the leader of her pack.


Baby Joy is very sweet and loves to be cuddled. She will sit calmly in your lap for long periods of time. She has a gentle mouth and keeps her teeth to herself most of the time. She spent a good part of her day last Friday helping me with the RAGOM Garage Sale. She was a big help and made lots of new friends.




Baby Joy's name came from one of my residents dogs that crossed the Bridge last winter. Big Joy was the wheelchair dog that came into RAGOM's care in 2012. I fostered her and then adopted her a short time later. Baby Joy is so much like Big Joy in the way she talks to us, the way she acts, and her overall body language. There was no better name for me to give her than JOY! She will no longer be known as the number 337. No dog's name should be a number.
