This 2-year-old neutered terrier mix named Joey, awaiting adoption at the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, 205 Ensminger Road, Town of Tonawanda, not only needs a home but maybe a dog psychiatrist, too.
His keepers say he is good with children, which is understandable, and cats, which isn't. He can be taken home for the adoption fee of $65, which includes a rabies vaccination, deworming, a distemper shot, a free physical at a veterinarian of your choice, a collar and tag.
