Joel the Lab mix's big smile is one to fall in love with at Houston SPCA
If you've always envisioned having a dog that can wow a crowd with tricks, then adopting Joel is a great first step.
This two-year-old Lab mix that's currently at the Houston SPCA is super treat motivated, which means he's eager to learn. He already knows how to sit like a champ, so training him to do more complicated commands would be no sweat.
Joel is a playful guy at 57 pounds, who loves to wrestle and run with his pals.
But if you're also seeking a pup who's into quiet time, he's never met a couch he doesn't love to stretch out on.
Joel is what's known as a VIP — Very Important Pup — so his adoption fee is 50 percent off, only $25.
That includes a microchip, neuter surgery, up-to-date vaccinations, a free sample bag of Hill’s Pet Nutrition, and a free post-exam from any VCA Animal Hospital.
Stop by the Houston SPCA, which is open every day from 11 am-6 pm, to spend some time in the play yards with Joel and many other adoptable pets.
