Good things come in small packages. Meet six-year-old Joya who weighs in at just eight pounds. Joya is a happy and sweet little pup





Joya1 PAJoya makes friends easily – as long as you are a person or a cat. She is unsure when she meets other dogs, but since she hasn’t been with another dog in our care, we cannot tell whether she will get more comfortable with them.

Walking is at the top of Joya’s favorite activities and she is great on a leash. No pulling for this pint-sized pup. When it comes to riding in a car Joya is not a fan, but we are trying to convince her that cars can take you to fun places.

Joya is on a prescription diet due to crystals in her urine, but she enjoys her meals. She is well mannered and will not beg for treats. Although Joya is not food motivated, she does love a good chew stick on occasion.

Joya has a favorite toy named Ladybug that she will happily chase after and fetch for you. She is lots of fun and a great companion.
