Helping Joey

It’s obvious that Joey needs some help – he is blind, and suffering from health problems. In a perfect world, Joey would be receiving the loving care that he needs from his person – but the world is not perfect. You can lend this blind dog a hand by taking a moment to share this article, with his adoption information.
