I found Joy on www.petfinder.com. Her story was so sad it made us want to meet her so much. She had been in a puppy mill and her puppies were taken away prematurely. She loved cats (that's good because we have Safari) and she could be the only dog--perfect! She is full of life and fun. Lots of Border Collie energy! She acts like a puppy, that is for sure. We love her so much and she is a "joyful" addition to our life!
